  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 ¼ lb. Chicken breast, skinless, trimmed of fat, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 4 cups onion, diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 ½ cup green bell pepper, diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 ½ cup red bell pepper, diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded, finely diced

Preparation:

  1. Place diet cola in a saucepan over medium-high heat and reduce to 3/4 cup. Set aside for later.
  2. Make topping by heating olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and sauté chicken until light golden on all sides, about 7-10 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
  3. In same pan, add onions and peppers. Sauté for 5 minutes, and then add garlic. Continue to cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

  5. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place tortilla wedges on non-stick cookie sheets and spray them with cooking spray. Bake until tortillas are crispy and lightly golden, about 12 minutes.
