Boneless skinless chicken thighs are used in this recipe because they tend to be more flavourful than chicken breast. Serve with tortillas and trimmings.

Used different ingredients. This is the best fajitas recipe I have found. I substituted about 1/2 T of lime (instead of the lemon) and added it to the marinade. I also let the meat simmer in the juices - this makes sure that it won't be dry but juicy instead. - 18 Jul 2008

Probably not as authentic as the fajitas I have had in TexMex restaurants however it was pretty tasty and my fussy little kids liked the chicken which is a plus in my book. - 17 Aug 2009
