Instructions
 

  • Chicken Fajita Wrap Directions:
  • Prepare the fajita seasoning by combining all ingredients in a small bowl and stirring until thoroughly blended. Store any excess in an airtight container for later use.
  • Prepare the cilantro-lime sauce by thoroughly combining all ingredients in a medium glass or another non-reactive bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers, onion, and balsamic vinegar to the skillet and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the onions and peppers are crisp-tender.
  • Add the shredded rotisserie chicken, fajita seasoning, and chicken stock to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook, until heated through and excess liquid, is gone, approximately 3-4 minutes. Season with additional salt or fajita seasoning, if desired.
  • Remove skillet from heat and stir in the cilantro, green onions, and fresh lime juice. To serve, spoon mixture onto individual Romaine lettuce leaves and top with a drizzle of cilantro-lime sauce. Enjoy!
