Today I have a very good recipe for spicy food lovers, but it is so tasty that those who don’t like spicy food will love it too. Fajitas belong to Mexican and American cuisines and are made from both beef and chicken. The main ingredients are also onion and bell pepper. If you cannot eat very bitter dishes, I recommend reducing the amount of pepper to your taste.

Ingredients

  • 600 g chicken breast

  • In the meantime, chop the onion and cut the bell peppers into juliennes.
