Quick and Easy Chicken Fajita Wrap Recipe

Looking for a quick meal idea that your family will love? If so, then you are going to love this chicken fajita wrap recipe.

Even more so if you have leftover chicken sitting in your fridge or freezer since this Mexican dish is a delicious and creative way to use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken for a quick and flavorful weeknight meal. 

What I love about these chicken fajita wraps is that you can meal prep most of the recipe ahead of time for a quick dinner idea to serve on your busiest days. 

For best results, prepare the cilantro-lime sauce the night before so the flavors have a chance to thoroughly blend. You can also prepare the fajita seasoning in larger batches and store it in an airtight container for later use.

Planning ahead will save you even more time on those busy nights you want to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible.
