Chicken Pepper Fajitas

"This spicy entree is fun to serve sizzling at the table, just like they do in restaurants," relates Lucinda Price. The Tracy, California cook fills her light fajitas with green and red peppers, onions and chicken that's quickly marinated for a flavor boost.

    These are delicious and easy to make. The flavor is bold, but not too spicy. I didn't have any lime juice on hand, so I substituted for lemon juice.

    Made these last night for our Super Bowl party. They were very good and my family really enjoyed them. Would definately make again!
