Directions

  • Combine chicken strips and fajita marinade in a large bowl. Let marinate in the refrigerator, 1 hour to overnight.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Combine oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Clean heads of romaine lettuce; cut in half from end to end. Brush halved romaine lettuce with oil-garlic mixture.

  • Add sliced peppers and onions to the oil-garlic mixture. Toss to combine.

  • Arrange the romaine cut-side down on the oiled grill. Cook just until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.

  • If you have a grill basket, spread marinated chicken evenly in the basket; otherwise, thread chicken and vegetables on skewers. Grill chicken for 5 minutes. Turn the chicken in the basket, add the vegetables, and grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the chicken reaches 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 10 minutes more.

  • Slice grilled lettuce and place on serving plates. Divide chicken and vegetables evenly over the grilled romaine lettuce.

Panasonic CIO Directions:

Preheat Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven to High on the "Grill" setting. Grill the romaine on heated grill pan as directed in Step 5. Set aside to cool.

Spread marinated chicken evenly in the hot grill pan; top with the peppers and onions. Cook for 5 minutes. Toss the chicken and vegetables and cook for 5 minutes more. Verify that the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees F (74 degrees C) by using an instant-read thermometer. Arrange salad as directed.

Love this salad! This recipe has all the flavors I love in fajitas but without the tortilla. Since I am going low carb this was a delight! I have had grilled romaine at a restaurant before but I have never done it at home. Thanks to Baking Nana and to the Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven my grilled romaine was a success. The CIO was a real help because I could see what was going on with the romaine as it grilled. There is no need to wait for summer to grill with this appliance and actually it's too hot to grill outside for me in the summer so win win! The garlic flavored oil was just right on the veggies. I used "Delicious Chicken Fajita Marinade" from this site on the chicken so in case you happen not to have any bottled marinade you can still accomplish this gem of a recipe. (Note to self: add some smoked paprika to the marinade next time for a hint of smokiness in the flavor.) Low-carb Tex-Mex healthy protein rainbow veggies--what more could a girl ask for in a lunch or light dinner? Thanks Baking Nana! Read More

I thought this recipe was super yummy & a nice way to do mexican without all the calories. The only thing I ll do differently next time is not grill the lettuce and use them as lettuce wraps themselves but it is yummy grilled as well. Read More

Chicken fajitas is one of my favorite dishes so when I saw this salad I had to try it. Loved the simplicity of this. The Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven made this such a breeze to prepare. I didn't label my chicken when I froze it and thought I had pulled out chicken breast but instead it was boneless skinless thighs. I went with it. Turned out delicious. Thanks for the keeper!

Sometimes you have to wonder how an easy to make recipe can be so flavorful and healthy too. The countertop induction oven made quick work of this. The marinated chicken onion and peppers were done in 6 minutes mixing at the halfway mark and came out sizzling. I will definitely make this again however I will try Grill Medium High with the chicken onion and peppers. Without a doubt this will go into my TNT folder. Read More
