CHICKEN FAJITAS - recipe

Following our unique method for weight loss should bring you fabulous results.  Once we began paying attention to what was actually in our food, we were often shocked to find out just how many calories could lurk beneath the wrapper.
This is what we are eating later. We're off to the pub, and this chicken fajita will stop us feeling ravenous and in need of some calorie laden snack at the bar.
At around 400 calories this chicken fajita is perfect - leaving plenty of room to eat something later too. Depending on what we plan to do later, will depend whether we share one.
With our on/off weight loss method, Friday is a day when I get to eat a FULL calorie allowance. I've had porridge for breakfast and butternut squash soup for lunch. This whole wrap will leave me with around 1000 calories to play with. Oh, and walking to and from the pub will give me another 150 calories.

CHICKEN FAJITA WRAP (serves 2)
Pack of tortilla wraps
250g chicken breast (cut into strips)
fajita seasoning
one or two peppers
one large onion
greek yoghurt 
sweet chilli sauce
First marinate the chicken in the fajita seasoning and a little oil. (Optional - add a sprinkle of smoked paprika and a dash of lime juice to the marinade).
Fry some colourful peppers and onions in a little olive oil then remove and set aside. Place the marinated chicken into the frying pan and fry until cooked through. This won't take long. Just cut one open to see that it's cooked - it should be white inside. Place on a paper towel to rest for a minute or two.
Spread the wrap with greek yoghurt** and sweet chilli sauce (we used Chinese sweet chilli sauce - that's all we had).  Add some shredded lettuce then top with the pepper mix and chicken. 
Wraps are around 200 calories each, so we find it's better to use one wrap and pack it out with filling!
It's annoying that wraps can only be bought in packs of 6 - so don't forget to freeze the rest for another day. I roll mine up and wrap in cling film. 
**You could use sour cream or creme fraiche. We tend to use whatever we have in the fridge - saves money. Sometimes we spread with mayonnaise.
Looking forward to spending all my unused calories later! TGIF. Enjoy your weekend. Relax and most of all ENJOY THE FOOD YOU EAT.
