This was lovely. I was worried that it would be bland (as some of the comments suggest) so I added fresh chilies, peppers and paprika.

Easy but pretty tasteless.

i love this recipe! super quick and easy and very tasty! a good one to make for guests too. we sometimes use sweet chilly sauce instead of guacamole - that's also very good.

tasty and fresh. different to normal fajitas. was nice that it was low fat and tasty. good mid week meal & will def make again. only put 4 stars due to the fat it was a little bland but was nice none the less :)

Like this slightly different take on fajitias.

Really good. I used rocket instead of lettuce and added some cherry tomatoes, cucumber and cheese to the tortillas to bulk them up a bit. The supermarket had run out of natural yogurt so I and used low fat sour cream and chive dip instead, was very tasty but probably not as healthy!

i actually gave that three stars but some reason i had the option of giving it six stars and it has reduced my rating to two stars... :S

the boyfriend enjoyed this and had the leftover chicken and salad for his lunch the next day. we added tomatoes - i'd obviously based my shopping list on the picture rather than the recipe! - but were let down by our shop-bought guacamole. would maybe try again with a home-made guacamole or just some avocado.

Really nice. can be a light or not-so-light meal depending on what you put with it on the tortilla! Yum!

A great alternative for those guests who don't like hot, hot, hot Mexican food. I took the advice above and marinaded it for a while. My 5 year old nieces really enjoyed it.

I marinade the chicken with the lime and black pepper, for between 20mins to 1 hr. It's only on re-reading that I realized this wasn't specified, but the marinating really does bring out the flavours.
