HOT and Spicy Chicken Fajita Piles

Fajitas, Tacos, burritos, enchiladas- you name it we LOVE it!  In order to eat these things on a weekly basis, they have to be changed up a little bit.  This alternative eliminates the tortilla shell and just piles the same stuff onto a bed of Cilantro Brown Rice.  The flavor of the chicken is awesome!  The lime and chipotle peppers are a perfect combination.

Ingredients:
  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • Peppers
  • Sliced Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Lettuce
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Fat Free Sour Cream
  • Cilantro Brown Rice
Marinade
  • 2 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 3 teaspoons Lime Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons water
Combine Marinade ingredients in small food processor until well blended.  Place chicken in zippered storage bag and pour marinade in.  Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
 Grill chicken breasts until cooked through.
 Removed chicken from grill and thinly slice.
 While chicken is cooking, begin steaming peppers and onions.  They will take the longest.  Add the mushrooms last as they will take just a couple of minutes.
Place Cilantro Brown Rice on plate and pile on the chicken and veggies and top with lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, salsa, or cheese.
