      No Comments on Chicken Fajita Pita

This is a very simple recipe, mainly because we use the ‘cheater’ method.  Most of the time when we cook this we use pre-cooked, frozen fajita meat.  However, that being said, using boneless/skinless chicken breasts and just pan cooking them with the seasonings of your choice is also super easy, most especially if you buy the chicken breasts already cut into strips.

Nat’s Notes: These can be as flavorful and/or spicy as you want them to be. I generally keep mine pretty simple, but imagine these stuffed with some black bean and corn salsa, some fresh pico de gallo, and queso fresco. YUM!
