chicken fajitas recipe

This is one of those recipes for which I always have the ingredients on hand, and it can be made quickly when I haven't prepared or planned anything for dinner. The ingredients sound a little weird (soy sauce in fajitas??) but trust me, this chicken fajita marinade is a real crowd-pleaser.

We serve ours in heated tortillas with shredded cheese, sour cream and tomatoes. I actually like mine with a mixture of ranch and chipotle tabasco, but I'm weird like that.
