Fajita is a term used to call marinated grilled meats that are served in warm flour tortillas. Chicken and beef (steaks) are the commonly used meats for this delightful dish. This sizzling chicken fajita recipe is tangy and delicious.
Once in a while, I make Fajitas for my family. I use a Fajita plate (which is very similar to the sizzling plate) to keep the meal warm and look more appealing. The good thing about this Chicken Fajita Recipe is its ease of preparation and availability of ingredients. Preparation time does not take too long, while the ingredients are always readily available in most local markets or supermarkets.
This is best eaten wrapped in warm flour tortillas with some salsa and a little sour cream on top.
