Notes

Chicken Fajita Salad Tips

  • Feel free to add more lime or more chili to suit your taste.
  • The chicken is ready and safe to eat when a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F.
  • Try and make sure the chicken pieces are all the same size so they cook at the same rate.
  • Cook time depends on the size of chicken pieces and veggies, so if you cut them small you might want to cook for a couple of mins less than this recipe states.
  • If I am short on time or spices, I just use a mix of paprika and cumin to make this.
  • Feel free to double or triple the Fajita Chicken Salad recipe to serve a crowd.
