“Our chicken fajita tacos are the answer on a night when you have little time, low bandwidth and maybe even limited ingredients. This delicious dish can be made in 28 minutes or less and only uses one pan. That means quick cook time and minimal after -dinner cleanup,” says Julie Park, co-creator of platein28.com.
“Plus, the ingredients are super flexible. The chicken can be thighs, breasts or tenders (fresh or frozen). If you don’t have all the seasonings, use taco seasoning or whatever you have/like (add cayenne for more heat, replace fresh garlic with garlic powder).Any tortilla will work and pick whatever toppings you like,” she continues, adding that there are endless ingredient swap options for you to customize the dish as you desire.
