These fajitas were sooo good and healthy!  The meat was juicy and the peppers and onions were still crisp, plus the smoky taste from grilling everything.  Served on the low carb wrap, that was big but on 80 calories, so it was a total win.  I used just a little pepper jack cheese to top them off and that just tied everything together.

 

Start out by making a marinade, with Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, lime juice, salt and pepper.

Divide the marinade in half, half in a bag with the sliced up chicken and keep half in the bowl for the veggies.

Let everything sit in the frig for a few hours. Then on the grill (I used a grill pan) start out grilling the chicken for few minutes, then add the onions & peppers
