The recipe you tried today at the Williamsburg Farmers Market was made with the pre-cooked fajita strips that are used in our school cafeterias. In a hurry? Try substituting chicken cut from a leftover rotisserie chicken or frozen unbreaded chicken strips and pre-cut frozen peppers and onions. On a budget? Substitute chicken cut from a roaster or boneless chicken thighs. Adjust cooking time if using precooked chicken or frozen veggies.
