This fajita recipe is probably the most fuss free and easy fajita recipe you’ll ever come by.  After all there are only 4 ingredients: Bell pepper, onion, chicken, and seasoning. I like to make my fajitas in a cast iron but you can always make it in a regular pan as well. If you prefer not to use store bought fajita seasoning, you can always make your own.
Here is a great recipe for homemade fajita seasoning from Mexicanfood.com.
