A Family Favorite: Chicken Fajitas

This meal was one of my favorites growing up. And for good reason! Fajitas are full of different flavors and make a for an easy dinner that’s fantastic for sharing. The chicken takes all of 10 minutes to prepare, so this meal is really just a matter of preparing and setting out all your ingredients. And of course, each person can build their wraps to their taste. Everyone’s happy!

The slightly spicy taste of the chicken is perfectly complemented by the mozzarella, sour cream and avocado. A four-flavor match! And who doesn’t like a little mozzarella to go with it? We really enjoyed having these fajitas: they were easy to make, filling, nutritious and delicious! A healthful, easy meal is always a plus!

Prepare all the ingredients for serving and set them on the table. If desired, place the wraps on a baking sheet, cover with aluminum foil and warm in the oven at a low temperature.
