Chicken Fajita Pasta

Chicken Fajita Pasta? Um where have I been? I did not know such a thing existed until I stumbled upon a couple of recipes while browsing Pinterest the other day. All I have to say about this dish is...Oh. My. Word. I couldn't get enough of the stuff. My husband too. Chicken Fajita Pasta...where have you been my whole life? I am so glad I made this and I was able to lighten it up some and make it weight watchers friendly. A win/win in my book!

Chicken Fajita Pasta
Serves 6
Cal 320, Carbs 46.8, Fat 4.6, Fiber 3, Protein 25

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
1 packet fajita seasoning
12 oz. short pasta of your choice (I used bow ties)
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 tsp. olive oil
1 lime

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.

While Pasta is cooking, cut chicken into pieces and sprinkle with fajita seasoning.  Add oil to a large skillet.

Sauté chicken and veggies over medium high heat until no longer pink and veggies are softened. Spritz with lime juice. Stir in sour cream and cheese and toss with hot cooked pasta. Garnish with additional cheese and green onion if desired. Enjoy!
