Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

Isn't this Romaine lettuce pretty?!?! A co-worker of mine is growing some in her garden this year. She brought some to work for me, so I was inspired to make this recipe using her lettuce!
You can find this recipe in the Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 cookbook.

You are supposed to use red and green bell peppers in this recipe (for color) but I had some yellow and orange peppers that I needed to use, so this pic is not very pretty, but man this stuff is great!!

Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

3 leaves romaine, butter, or green leaf lettuce
3 oz raw bonless skinless lean chicken breast, sliced
1/2 cup sliced red and green bell peppers
1/2 cup sliced onions
2 TB Holy Moly Guacamole (seperate recipe in the book, I left this out)
1 TB salsa
1 TB FF sour cream (I used light)
1 1/2 teaspoons dry fajita seasoning mix

Place chicken, peppers, and onions in a medium bowl. In a seperate dish, blend fajita seasoning mix with 3 TB water.

Pour seasoning mixture over chicken and veggies. Stir until chicken and veggies are thoroughly coated. Let marinate for 5 minutes.

Spray a medium pan with nonstick spray (I used EVOO here to get in my daily healthy oils) and bring to medium high heat. Pour chicken veggie mixture including any excess marinade into the pan.

Stirring occasionally, saute' until chicken is cooked through and veggies are slightly browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl.

Enjoy fajita style, by loading up each lettuce "cup" with 1/3 of the chicken veggie mixture and topping with the guacamole, salsa, and sour cream.
