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
