This is a fantastic and easy chicken fajitas recipe. It's a winner with the whole family so this is one of our new go-to weeknight meals and also one we cook when friends come over (just double the recipe). To keep it healthier and lower in carbs, you can eliminate the tortillas and serve the chicken mixture over top of the rice and beans. It's still so delicious this way! Either way, here's how to make these awesome fajitas:
1 red, 1 yellow pepper sliced
1 red onion
4lbs chicken breasts, sliced
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp cooking oil
4 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
12 flour tortillas
