    This was a big hit! Tender and delicious chicken, even though I only marinated for an hour. I love lime, so I added a few squeezes to the finished product before serving. This will definitely go on the dinner rotation.

    These are some of the best fajitas I have ever had even in restaurants. I cooked it on the grill and it was sooooo good.

    My family loves this recipe! The flavors are wonderful. I cut the chicken into strips; instead of cooking on the grill, stir fried chicken, then added pre-cut vegetables to pan. I didn't drain the marinade sauce enough before cooking. There was a lot of sauce in the mix and it made the fajitas a little soggy. It was good anyway, but I think it would be easier to handle if it was not dripping. No one complained, just my own observation. I will try again soon, still plan to stir fry, but will drain better next time.
