A zesty lime sauce over quick cooked chicken breast chunks is the base for this summer feast...a staple of our summer menu! This dish is a Trim Healthy Mama fuel pull, and can be converted to any meal style by just switching out sides & toppings.
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 6-8
  • 2 lb. diced skinless chicken breast or tenderloins
  • ¼ c. red wine vinegar
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 4-6 shakes of stevia extract or sweetener of your choice (1 t. sugar)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 4 green onion stalks, chopped
  • 3 or more cloves of fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano or 2 tsp. fresh oregano
  • low carb tortillas, warmed in the oven
  • diced tomatoes
  • shredded lettuce
  • salsa
  • 0% Greek Yogurt (FP/E) or Sour Cream (S/S Helper/Crossover)
  • Guacamole (S)
  • Rice or Beans (E/S Helper)
  1. Remove tendon from tenderloins if desired, and dice chicken into 1" chunks.
  2. Put chicken into medium saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally until cooked through and no longer pink, about 15-20 minutes. Do not allow to brown, as it will get too dry.
  4. While chicken is cooking, combine all ingredients for sauce.
  5. Heat tortillas in the oven on 200* by removing them from plastic packaging and placing them in lightly damp tea towel or paper towels and wrapping in foil (or put into a covered dish)
  6. Prep other side dishes and toppings
  7. When chicken is finished cooking, add sauce and serve.
One Meal 5 Ways: Fuel Pull -3: oz. of meat, and top with 0% Greek yogurt as a sour cream sub, salsa, diced tomatoes and shredded lettuce on a low carb tortilla
S Style;: -Use real sour cream, guacamole, cheese, and/or olives for an S meal.
E Style: -Add up to 1½ cups of fat free refried beans, or black beans as a side dish, OR ¾ cup of brown rice. Or use a smaller portion and a half a piece of fruit or an S dessert.
S Helper: Go with your S style meal, and add ⅓-1/2 cup of beans OR ¼ cup of brown rice to your meal.
Crossover Style: I serve tortilla chips for my kids when I'm serving S style meals, or you could add a side of beans or brown rice for them. If I'm serving E style, then I just set out cheese and sour cream for them to enjoy.
