Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Fajitas

Baked Chicken Fajitas from 

Good morning, it is Tuesday and here is a recipe we call a "keeper"!  We love Mexican food at our house and I was so happy to find a fajita recipe that included seasoning made from scratch.  These are sooo easy and soooo gooood.  I put the ingredients in a baggie and then into the fridge early in the day and then just baked at dinner time.  They will be a go to recipe for sure.  

Interesting note too is the recipe is from Plain Chicken who gave me my "Fall Off The Bone Recipe" that I have become famous for.  Go check out http://www.plainchicken.com for wonderful recipes.
