This was a lovely dish, served with salad on tortillas. The salsa I had in the cupboard was mango and mixed with the fajita pack made the chicken mildly sweet & spicy. Yum! Will definitely do this again..

Great recipe! I used 3 chicken breast (950gms) with one pack of taco seasoning and still the whole jar of salsa. Worked out great – very tasty!
