Chicken Fajitas

 

Chicken Fajitas

Who doesn’t love fajitas?  I like this chicken version for a quick weeknight dinner.  Make extra chicken and have a chicken fajita salad for lunch the next day.  This marinade would be great for flank steak too if you would like steak fajitas.  It’s all about the fixin’s so make some homemade Guac and Pico de Gallo to go with it.
