The best darn Chicken Fajita recipe ever

Chicken fajitas are one of my all time favorite meals!  They are just so freakin’ delicious.  I love everything about them.  Their flavor, the way their must-have toppings make my house smell of caramelized onions and peppers.  All the pretty fixins you wrap them up with! (Especially the guacamole… Mmm guacamole!)  The way the fajita resembles a burrito but tastes like heaven in your mouth.  Sorry, am I getting a little carried away?  I can’t help it.   I told you, fajitas are my FAY VOR IT!
I have been on the hunt for the perfect chicken fajita recipe and had found some good ones, but none that rank up there with my beloved Chili’s fajitas….They were my favorite… until NOW!  THIS IS THE BEST DARN CHICKEN FAJITA RECIPE EVER!  The only one you’ll ever need!  Cross my heart!

I’m telling you these are sooooo good!  You’ll be wishing there were leftovers, but there won’t be.  They always go so fast.  However, if there ARE leftovers I recommend using the extra chicken in a salad.  Makes an amazing lunch the next day!!
