    Loved how easy this recipe was. I used some sliced S/B chicken breasts. I went with the exact amount of the seasoning, except for the salt that I doubled, and I cooked for 20 mn. The chicken and vegetables had released some of their juices and that might have been what caused this dish to taste under seasoned ?! Next time I will increase the heat to 425 and cook only for 15 mn. We served this with corn tortillas , home made guacamole, sour cream and shredded cheese.  -  31 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Big hit in my home. I made it with green, yellow and orange peppers and was delicious. Very easy to make. I did heat the baking sheet before putting the mixture in it, helped with cleanup. Recommend this to all that like fajitas.  -  30 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow, Ive done fajitas for years, but these are quick, easy and delicious. I did cook at 425 for about 5 extra minutes. Next time I will cut the tenderloins in half. Delicious!  -  04 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
