Incorporate in a recipe? Please read?

Hello All! I am incredibly hungry, and somewhat on a diet. I know the ingredients i would like to use in the dish, just not what to do with them.. I would like to use, boneless skinless chicken breasts, bell peppers and onions, avocado, cilantro, cheese, etc ( i am open to more, of course). It seems that fajitas or skewers would be the easiest option, but i want to see if anyone else has any amazing ideas/links.. Thanks so much for the help! : )
