This is one of my favorite meals to make the family. It is so easy to make and everyone loves it. There are also so many ways to customize it depending on your preferences. You can serve it over cauliflower rice to make a delicious bowl or with your favorite lettuce to make a flavorful salad. I also enjoy it in low carb tortillas (not Whole30, but still low carb).

I use cubed chicken thighs for these chicken fajitas. The thighs are so flavorful and tender, but cubed chicken breast will also work for this recipe. I get all of my chicken from ButcherBox, it is the best quality meat and gets delivered right to my front door. I have been using it for almost 3 years now and I have never been disappointed.
