ingredients

  • 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 ripe tomato, thinly sliced

directions

Preheat the broiler. Put chicken breasts in a shallow nonaluminum dish and sprinkle with lime juice, salt and pepper. Let marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Whisk together yogurt, sour cream, cilantro, jalapeƱo and cumin in a small bowl. Season with salt and set aside.

Place the chicken and onions on a lightly oiled baking sheet and broil for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the chicken and stir onion. Broil until the chicken is no longer pink inside, 3 to 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil and place on the rack below the baking sheet. Bake at 300 degrees F until steaming, about 5 minutes.

To assemble fajitas, thinly slice the chicken. Fill each tortilla with the chicken, onions, lettuce and tomato slices. Top with the reserved yogurt mixture and roll up the tortilla and filling. Serve immediately.
