We are all always searching for the perfect weeknight meal right? Well have I got a recipe for you. Easy skillet chicken fajitas, juicy chicken and flavor packed peppers ready to eat in 20 minutes. This meal is as simple as cutting up your veggies and chicken (you could even buy these things precut, I won’t tell on you), spicing your ingredients (check out my fajita seasoning here), and cooking them all up in your skillet. Once all cooked enjoy your fajitas piled high in warm tortillas, top with fresh squeezed lime juice, cilantro, avocado, and sour cream. Winner winner chicken dinner!

P.S. If it is nice outside, grab your cast iron pan and make these fajitas on the grill, they are sooo good 🙂
