Cilantro-Lime Chicken Fajitas

There’s just something about fajitas…

You’ve just been seated at an American fare-type restaurant. Menu in hand, you’re trying to decide what sounds good… then a server walks by with a fajita platter. The sound of the juices sizzling on the hot cast iron platter, plus the aroma of marinated chicken, onions and peppers wafting all around you, make your meal decision a quick one. “I’ll have the chicken fajitas, please!”
