    It just doesn’t get much easier than this recipe for home made chicken fajitas. Juicy flavorful street taco style fajitas are delicious and fun to eat. The secret to this tasty recipe is the dry seasoning mix and the lemon juice that are baked to perfection and produce a well balanced flavor of a traditional fajita. Just cut everything up put it on the pan and place in the oven. You can serve on hard or soft shell but I prefer mine on toasted corn tortillas to get that authentic flavor of an unmistakably good street taco.
