Skillet Chicken Fajitas recipe is a family favorite in my house. My boys love these fajitas and get super excited when they see them on the menu plan. I like this recipe because I can make it in 30 minutes! Yes an easy dinner recipe that tastes great plus it's healthy. So for me as a mom, it's a win-win. Football season has started for my boys so we have lots of practice and games in our schedules. So this recipe is a life saver for us to have a healthy dinner before heading out the door.
In my recipe for Skillet Chicken Fajitas I use spices to make the fajita mix. If you do not have the spices or do not want to take the time to measure out, you can swap the spices for a packet of fajita mix. I just try to avoid the packages for my family and I think it tastes better. I also use my cast iron skillet because it really brings out the flavor in the chicken and sautes the peppers and onion nicely. My husband and kids eat the chicken fajita mixture on soft tortillas, I however prefer putting the mixture on lettuce wraps.
