Easy, Make Ahead Chicken Fajitas.

By Natalie Mansson

My supper meals consist mainly of protein and lots of fibrous veggies.  It is easy to feed two of my kids that way, but my husband and one of my sons like breads, rice, tortillas, ect.  The following recipe works for all of us.  I eat the fajita mixture on a bed of greens, two of my kids eat the chicken out of it and have a side of broccoli, and my other son and husband eat it in tortilla or on a bed of brown rice.  Another side note, I seem to have problems coordinating the use of my crock pot for supper.  So, I will often prepare this the day before or earlier in the day and then heat it up.  I hope you enjoy!
