Pineapple Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Pineapple Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Suggested romance: Serve with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa and toasted almonds. Honey and pineapple add a sweet twist to these fajitas that my family loves. I like to serve them with coleslaw and baked or fried potatoes. —Raymonde Bourgeois, Swastika, Ontario

"My husband and I absolutely love this recipe, especially prepared with the low fat spanish rice recipe. We do substitute pineapple juice for the water to make it even more mouth watering. Pair it with low carb whole wheat tortillas to make it extra healthy!"
