This is marvelous! It reminded me of chicken I had in fajitas at Applebees or of those great places. What I did was chop up my chicken into smaller peices to make it more like chicken nuggets. It's also good in a tortilla. Thanks for sharing this!

This recipe was made for mine and SO's dinner on 4/21/08.I used two flattened boneless chicken breasts.And the only thing that was cut in half in the recipe besides the chicken, was the paprika. If this was made again, I think that the cumin might be "kicked up a bit ". As I made it it tasted pretty good. Thanks for posting and "Keep Smiling :)"
