These are delicious fajitas that are cooked on the grill rather than on the stove top which we enjoyed. This recipe is very easy to change the amount of servings. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July 2005)

This is delightful. My husband loved it. I served with lowfat sour cream, good salsa, sliced avocado, and low fat cheese. My husband does not like cilantro. I used flat leaf parsley instead. I also used chicken tenders. It smeled just like a restaurant when i was grilling this. I would serve this to company.
This was very easy and flavorful I used rotisserie chicken but sealed it in my food saver bag with the marinade, before grilling. Worked perfectly.
This recipe is great! At first I was a little intimidated by the appearance of the marinade, but it turned out delicious. I would say this recipe easily feeds 8 people. We ate fajitas all week!
