Homemade Chicken Fajitas

My family loves  Homemade Chicken Fajitas! It’s so yummy that everyone will be asking for seconds. Don’t think you have to purchase “fajita seasoning” either–our recipe includes all the seasonings that you need to make fajitas and you probably already have them in your spice cabinet too.

These chicken fajitas are even better when you use our No Fail Tortilla Recipe for delicious, homemade soft flour tortillas.
