Fajita Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Emily
Everyone loves a good Fajita. But, if you're like me, you're looking for different ways to enjoy the same classic Mexican flavors. This recipe is a great variation of fajitas and it gets crispy on the outside while still tender on the inside.
You can serve with additional veggies or Spanish Rice.
