Fantastic Chicken Fajitas Recipe

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!

"So easy and good with sour cream, guacamole, cheese and salsa. I added peppers and onions and let it marinate for a little over an hour."

"Good but needs more spice for our taste and I prefer to have peppers/onion as well."

"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."

"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!!"

"This marinade is so flavorful!!! This is now one of my go to meals. I love it. I usually add a little more lemon for flavor and cut up peppers and put them in to marinade as well. Delicious!"

"I prepared this exactly as written but added sliced green peppers and sliced onions to the skillet with about 2 tablespoons of the marinade before I cooked the chicken. I liked that the recipe didn't have lime juice as I don't like it. As soon as I finished cooking I had to run out for an appointment and ate when I got home. This was good even cold. Picky husband said he would love to have this again."

"I used leftover steak instead of marinating chicken. The sauce was excellent. This created wonderful fajitas!"
