I found this somewhere on the Web. I never thought of adding zucchini to fajitas but it really gives it a good flavor. We even eat this when NOT on Weight Watchers! One serving of 2 tortillas is 5 points.

Great Recipe! Made it for Sunday Night Dinner, the family said it tasted healthy(I didn't even share that they were low-fat) they asked that this be repeated. I didn't have cumin on hand and only had chipotle chili powder. Made it with 6 breast so I increased all the veggies from small to the large size. Thank you!

I enjoyed this! I LOVE zucchini so to find it included was a treat. I used minced onion from a spice jar & used a little less paprika, and added a few shakes of cayenne-added a little seasoning salt, too! I served it on a whole wheat tortilla (oh, I didn't have any green pepper) with reduced fat mexican cheese & fat free sour cream. I added a little salsa but actually preferred it without! The addition of zucchini made all the difference; it mixed well with the spicy chicken. Thank u for sharing this!

This was pretty good, I think it could have used more "zip." Next time I'll marinade the chicken in the spices along with some lime juice, because it was a little dry, and maybe some cayenne to spice it up a bit. Easy to make, nice and healthy. Thanks!
