Chicken Fajitas

Updated: Feb 16, 2021

I love fajitas! They have a kick from the spices, zing from the lime juice and great flavour from the homemade salsa. And this is a simple recipe for a busy evening, which has loads of vegetables stuffed into them. My kids eat them without any fuss at all and will intentionally pick out the vegetables and eat them before the fajitas are finished. You can find the salsa recipe here.
