Chicken Fajita Spaghetti Recipe

Chicken Fajita Spaghetti Recipe

This tasty dinner has been a great time-saver for me. I usually cut up the chicken, onion and peppers while our two young children are napping. Then, just before my husband gets home from work, I toss everything into the skillet while the pasta is cooking on another burner.—Heather Brown, Frisco, Texas
