Fantastic Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Publisher Photo
Fajitas are my favorite dish when I'm at a Mexican restaurant, so I decided to try making them at home. They turned out so well that I served them the next time my husband's parents came to visit. Everyone said they were delicious!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 6, 2014

"These were great! Easy and everyone loved them! I did add some onion, I was a little wary of the marinade but it really came together. It was good."

"This is a recipe my whole family enjoyed. I added onions and salsa. The flavor wasn't as strong as I would have liked but it was very good even as leftovers."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 6, 2013

"Wow!! I won't bother with another fajita recipe ever. This was fantastic. I would never have tried this just by looking at the ingredients but I trusted the previous reviewers. I added a little extra lemon juice, and sauted onions and red and green peppers in a bit of the marinade that I had set off to the side. Will make this one regularly. My six and seven year olds (along with hubby and teenagers) loved it! Thanks for sharing!!"
