Here's the recipe from the Weight Watchers website...although, I did it a bit differently...I'll explain at the bottom...

Chicken Fajitas
POINTS: 8
INSTRUCTIONS

8 medium tortilla, flour, fat-free, regular or whole wheat
2 tsp olive oil
1 pound marinated chicken breast strips
1 pound frozen mixed vegetables, fajita-style
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 cup salsa


If you are using your own chicken, and not store bought, use 1 tsp. Liquid Smoke, and 1 tsp. hot sauce to create the marinade.

Preheat oven to 300║F.


Wrap tortillas in foil. Bake until warm, about 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sautÚ until cooked through, stirring frequently, about 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving plate, cover with foil and transfer to oven to keep warm.


In same skillet over medium-high heat, sautÚ frozen vegetables until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Serve chicken and vegetables with warm tortillas, sour cream and salsa. Yields about 2 tortillas, 3 ounces chicken, 1/2 cup vegetables and 2 tablespoons each sour cream and salsa per serving.

Instead of using a bag of frozen veggies, I bought red, yellow, green, and orange peppers, and some onions, and sauteed them with the chicken, and used that as the veggie filler. YUM! I also used the salsa like they mentioned, and also the sour cream. You get 2 fajitas per serving, and they really fill you up!! This is a definate FAVORITE!
