Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook. Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe. So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.
Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste. We loved this recipe, although it was a little spicy. I made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal. If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes, I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.
