"Made today but I didn't have the seasoned salt. Still came out amazing. Family loved it! It is definitely a keeper and a recipe worth repeating several times per year. I actually turned on the broiler at the end, made up the fajitas by placing two tortillas on a sheet of aluminum foil and preparing two large fajitas to go under the broiler, just until the cheese starts bubbling. They added salsa and sour cream and wrapped them up. Sauteing the vegetables in the remaining liquid left from cooking chicken is important. Cooked until they appear burnt in spots. Incredible!"

"This came out great but I reduced the c umin 1/4 teaspoon and the same with the chili powder and added a little extra garlic and added onion powder 1 teaspoon. Other than that, the longer it's marinated the better. I marinated it for 4 hours and used burrito tortillas. Also added rice. Really delicious, 4 people each had 2 with the fixings. Everyone was satisfied."

"We just finish dinner and I got nice complements about this fajitas. I did it exactly as you say and they were amazing. I

Served some tortillas but also some Boston lettuce leaves for those who I knew were going to have more than one.
Definitely I will make them ofte.
Thanks so much."

"Outstanding! Followed recipe exactly except used a pre-chopped fajita veggie mix from the produce aisle. Could not have been quicker or easier! Thanks!"

"This is an amazing fajita recipe! We had them last night & my whole family LOVED them! I made the recipe exact (including red pepper flakes) except I did allow the chicken to marinate over night. My family used to love the Applebee's sizzling fajita skillet & they took it off the menu...I tried a couple copy cat recipes & none were that close. THIS is almost exactly like it & my son asked how I got the recipe from them! I will be making this very often & am so glad this popped up in Pinterest for me!"
