“Different flavor from the usual chicken fajitas, but very tangy! If desired, serve with warm tortillas, fresh picante sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, rice and beans!!!”

I make this all the time! I do however use bottled italian dressing in place of the vinegar, oil and dry dressing mix. And I've learned to make sure it's drained well before cooking. I also marinate mine overnight soemtimes, and it tastes even better!

I REALLY LOVED THESE BUT I DIDNT QUITE FOLLOW THE RECIPE...INSTEAD OF USING OIL AND VINEGAR I USED FAT FREE ITALIAN DRESSING AND ADDED A THING OF ITALIAN DRESSING DRY MIX TO IT. PLUS I DIDNT MEASURE THE LIME JUICE..I JUST SQUEEZED ONE LIME IN AND ADDED A LITTLE BIT OF SUGAR. THE TANG WAS YUMMY. THIS WILL BE MY FAJITA RECIPE FROM NOW ON, BUT SWITHCED A BIT TO MAKE IT LOWER IN FAT.

This was a great recipe. I made it for my daughter's birthday party-25 people!! It was a big hit. I was even asked for the recipe. I served salsa, shredded cheese, tomatoes, sour cream and Spanish Rice. Everyone fixed them however they wanted. Because I did make it for more than the recipe called for(number of servings), it had a lot of liquid. If I make it for a big crowd again, I will not add so much liquid. You should try this one- it is a keeper!!
