Chicken Fajita Bowl

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, its 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 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
