More About This Recipe
  • Not every fajita recipes comes in a sizzling skillet that smokes up your kitchen. This fajitas recipe is crazy-easy — red bell pepper and onion slices are piled into a greased casserole dish and topped with chicken breast strips. Next, you drizzle with oil, sprinkle with seasoning mix, toss to coat and 35 to 40 minutes later dinner is served! We love the idea of assembling these fajitas at the table. Simply serve alongside tortillas, sour cream, salsa and cilantro to complete the meal! Lime juice is a common condiment in Mexican cuisine. Just squeeze a little on the chicken and veggies for a bright, tangy flavor boost.
