For chicken fajitas I’ve used homemade tortillas which I totally recommend as they are simply delicious and healthier than store-bought ones.  To save time tortillas can easily be made in advance.

Use your favorite toppings to serve along these Skillet Chicken Fajitas, either cheese, guacamole or simply avocado slices, salsa, pico de gallo and lime juice. Enjoy!
