Oven Roasted Chicken Fajitas

OH MY GOSH!  These Fajitas are so ridiculously good, that I can barely stand it!  I made these for dinner a few days ago with my homemade quinoa tortillas, and we gobbled them up quicker than you can say fajita because they are so yummy!  My secret to this yumminess is cumin, cumin, cumin!

Cumin is one of my favorite spices!  It adds such a great flavor to dishes, and it gives the illusion of eating something spicy, but it’s not irritatingly hot like a lot of other “spicy” spices.  Not only does it taste wonderful, it has tons of health benefits as listed in the above pin, so I love using it in my recipes whenever I can.  These fajitas were no exception!  They are DELICIOUS, and between the healthy spices, vegetables, and organic chicken – they are full of nutrition!
