Fantastic Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas are my favorite dish when I'm at a Mexican restaurant, so I decided to try making them at home. They turned out so well that I served them the next time my husband's parents came to visit. Everyone said they were delicious!

    This was a great marinade! Family liked the flavor. I poured the marinade over the meat while it was stir frying in a skillet. Then, pulled the meat out and put in one green pepper, one red pepper and one onion, all sliced thinly. We liked the grilled veggies layered in the tortilla along with sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa and guacamole. It was quick to cook too! Great meal that I'll make again.

    So easy and good with sour cream, guacamole, cheese and salsa. I added peppers and onions and let it marinate for a little over an hour.

    Good but needs more spice for our taste and I prefer to have peppers/onion as well.

    These were great! Easy and everyone loved them! I did add some onion, I was a little wary of the marinade but it really came together. It was good.

    This is a recipe my whole family enjoyed. I added onions and salsa. The flavor wasn't as strong as I would have liked but it was very good even as leftovers.

    Wow!! I won't bother with another fajita recipe ever. This was fantastic. I would never have tried this just by looking at the ingredients but I trusted the previous reviewers. I added a little extra lemon juice, and sauted onions and red and green peppers in a bit of the marinade that I had set off to the side. Will make this one regularly. My six and seven year olds (along with hubby and teenagers) loved it! Thanks for sharing!!

    The ingredients seemed a little odd for fajitas, but these are very good. Next time I will add a little spice.

    Loved the marinade!!! This meal was very quick and easy to get ready. Next time I will also add more of the traditional fajita fixings like some red and green peppers and onions. Very good flavor!!!!!
