This is so easy as long as you already have the spices. I have picky people in my family, so I used tomato sauce instead of chunks and onion powder instead of onions. I used frozen chicken breasts and an electric knife to cut the chicken very thin. I added extra tomato sauce and chicken broth after it was ready because I didn't have the other parts of the meal ready yet. I used our new fajita maker. It was great and the whole family loved it!

This dish was easy and delicious!
I used a clove of garlic instead of powder.
