Made these for lunch and they were delicious! Just the right amount of seasoning The chicken was tender and tasty.My husband likes shrimp fajitas so I put some of the seasoning on the shrimp and put more seasoning on the vegetables then added the shrimp when it was almost done.

Delicious recipe with just the right amount of spice, especially for kids. I loved the addition of salsa to the recipe.

I always like how fast it is to throw together a fajita meal. The chicken was flavored nicely with seasonings. I used the smaller 6" tortillas which made them appear to be so full. Definitely a hit in our house!

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes. You can change the flavor by changing the flavors of the salsa. We've done with this a sweet mango salsa and it was amazing.

Salsa added to the chicken was a nice deviation from our standard fajita recipe.
