    irishred5's Note:

    I got this recipe from a friend of mine from Texas 20 years ago and it has become one of my family's favorites. You can use the marinade to flavor peppers, onions and/or mushrooms and cook them to go along with your fajitas. The leftover chicken fajitas are great the next day mixed in a green salad. Extra marinade can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer for later use.

      I've tried quite a few recipes for fajitas and this is a winner. I did throw some Jalapeno peppers in to "heat" it up. Husband is pretty critical when it comes to his fajitas and he loved it. Told me it was a keeper. As others noted, makes so much marinade, just adjust the recipe to the quantity you want. Turned out great! Good recipe.

      Was very good but I think I was expecting a bit more citrus flavouring. I definitely will use it again but may try to tweek it is bit. Even without tweeking it everybody who had the chicken thought it was excellent. The recipe made enough marinade for all 13 boneless chicken breasts with still about an inch of liquid above them.

      This was good! I didn't use all of it because it made too much for the amount of meat I had. I will try it with chicken. I didn't have parsley so I'm going to have to pick some up when I pick up the chicken.
