Fajita Stuffed Chicken Recipe:

Ingredients for Fajita Stuffed Chicken:

  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced green and red bell peppers
  • 2 tsp. fajita skillet sauce with chipotle & lime
  • Three boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa *optional*

Directions for Fajita Stuffed Chicken:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray OR get a silicone baking mat, and put that bad boy in the baking pan instead. Then it will not require any spray, which saves you calories!
  2. Bring a nonstick pan to medium-high heat.
  3. Add onion and bell peppers. Cook and stir until softened, about 6 minutes.
  4. Transfer cooked veggies to a bowl and mix with 1 tsp. fajita sauce. Stir well.
  5. Slice a pocket in to the chicken breasts so that you can stuff them. Make sure it is not too deep where everything will fall out.
  6. Season chicken breasts with salt, black pepper, and mix them with the remaining 1 tsp. of fajita sauce.
  7. Divide cooked veggies and stuff in to the pockets of the breasts.
  8. Place in the baking pan. Cover the baking pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  9. Remove foil and sprinkle stuffed cutlets with cheese. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  10. Serve with salsa if you’d like.
  11. Enjoy!

    This looks delicious, but what are the containers for the 21 day fix?

      It’s really going to depend on the size of your chicken breast. I used 6oz breasts, so for mine it was 1 red, .25 green, .5 blue. To get exact measurements you can measure the peppers and onions in your green container before stuffing your chicken. You can also measure your cheese in your blue container before topping the chicken. Also, the red container is 6oz so if you’re chicken is 6oz you know that is one red. If you’re chicken is less you can adjust from there.

    I am excited to try this but am looking for recipes that will leave leftovers. Has anyone tried this reheated?

    • Jessica says:
      September 18, 2015 at 2:42 pm

      We have had it for leftovers because we can usually only eat half of the breast (very filling), and it tastes great reheated!

    Would this be good to prepare to the second stage and then freeze?

    My husband is lactose intolerant so I had to omit the cheese. Instead I heated some store bought salsa and poured it over the chicken to serve. I also added finely chopped mushrooms and tomatoes. Tufned out really well.

    I can’t find the fajita sauce what can I use to replace it?

    • Jessica says:
      April 4, 2017 at 8:07 pm

      You can use any fajita seasoning that you like 🙂 They usually have some sort of fajita seasoning packet mixed with the other seasonings.
