Chicken Fajita Bowl
Just because you are avoiding sugary and processed foods, doesn’t mean that your diet has to be boring. Here is a delicious chicken fajita bowl with homemade seasoning and avocado crema. This recipe has lots of Candida-safe ingredients, but it’s very easy to throw everything together. Perfect for when you need a filling, tasty meal!
I have included a tasty recipe for Fajita seasoning which you can use in other recipes too. In fact, I would recommend making larger amounts of this seasoning and storing it for future meals. All of the ingredients are dry, so it will keep for months if you store it in a jar and leave it in your pantry.
The main fajita bowl recipe is at the top. I have added the ingredients and directions for the seasoning and the avocado crema below. As always, it’s a far healthier choice to make your seasonings and dressings at home. Check out our recipes section for more low sugar recipe ideas. Let me know what you think!

I am on day 2 of my Candida cleanse and made this for dinner. It was amazing! So full of flavour. We used chicken thighs instead of breast, and did not have onion powder on hand but it was still delicious! I had never used coconut amino before and liked the flavour very much (but use it to taste). Looking forward to the rest of your recipes.
Hi Timea I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Hi I’ve just started out on the diet and made this for our dinner today, it was amazing and will definitely make it again. Might try it with strips of beef as well. Even my very fussy 6 year old liked the chicken and quinoa! Thank you
Hi Lisa, another phenomenal recipe!
You have two other recipe I’d like to rate because I don’t believe you were rating recipes way back then (maybe you could repost them with a recipe rating option?) Vanilla Custard and Rutabaga Fries, those two recipes need to be double rated at 10 instead of 5.
I love your recipes because they are very tasty and nutritious. Speaking of nutritious…would it be possible for you to add the nutritional facts to each recipe?
Unfortunately, I’m not one of the lucky people who lose weight on your program. I am currently on Weight Watchers while using some of your recipes, but I have to enter amount and item to get a point value for every recipe which is time consuming. Don’t know if adding nutritional facts is possible or not but sure would be helpful.
Thank you for the time and energy you (and your staff) spend on creating nutritious and delicious recipes (and supplements) for those of us on your program. Liver and probiotic supplements are the ABSOLUTE best on the market.
I never leave comments, but now I am. Had several hit and miss candida recipes, but this one is definitely the biggest hit so far! We especially enjoyed the fajita rub (and therefor the chicken) and the avocado crema! Everything else tasted so fresh and flavorful (doesn’t hurt I’m getting the hang of cooking the quinoa). There was nothing in this recipe that felt out of place. Loved it!
