I’ve been on a lean meat kick lately. I figure if I’m going to train my butt off for Tough Mudder I might as well go all the way and get a six pack. This basically means being extra strict! I wanted to turned something I already loved (and was pretty healthy) into something even more healthy and lean. I wanted fajitas that could fuel my body through an intense workout regimen. This is fajitas done Paleo with enough nutrients to fill you up and keep you going.
1 chicken breast (I would cook roughly .5-1 chicken breast per person)
salt & pepper (for seasoning)
Iceberg lettuce (I find iceberg provides the best lettuce cups but please feel free to use whatever it is you like best)
avocado slices(or guacamole; here’s our expert guacamole recipe)
salsa (here’s a fantastic Mango Pineapple Salsa recipe from ThePaleoMom.com)
Heat grill to high heat.
Sprinkle chicken breast with salt & pepper for seasoning.
Place chicken on grill and cook for roughly 15 minutes (or until chicken is cooked thoroughly). Remove chicken from grill and slice into thin slices.
While chicken is cooking, slice iceberg lettuce in half. Remove and discard top lettuce leaf. Carefully remove remaining lettuce leafs which you will use as lettuce cups for your fajitas.
To assemble, place chicken in lettuce cups and top with broccoli slaw, avocado slices and salsa.
This meal is packed full of nutrients and is totally customizable based on your taste buds.
