I found this recipe 7 years ago, but I keep making it because it's soooo good! I use minced garlic. Sometimes I marinate the chicken if I have time, but either way, I always throw in the 3/4 C of Italian dressing into the skillet with everything else after the chicken is cooked and I add 1/2 tbsp of lime and a 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice. I like my fajitas a little saucy, so I simmer until the sauce is reduced. My family gobbles them up!

Not your usual fajita ingredients, but a great way to spice up chicken and vegetables! Tasty and well seasoned. You can add the Spanish rice to the mixture to make a more filling fajita, instead of just having it as a side.

I thought this was a good recipe. Easy to fix and very easy to change ingredients depending on what is in your frig at the time. An addition of Spanish Rice as a side as another reviewer mentions sounds great.

Mild taste of Mexico for an early summer meal. Made for a nice serving of vegetables and I served it with Spanish rice.
