Pineapple Chicken Fajitas

by Megan

I have a ‘Taste of Home Diet Cookbook’ and we’ve been enjoying some yummy recipes from here lately. This is the same book the taco stuffed pepper cups came from. I ate this again the next day but instead of tortilla shells, I wrapped the chicken mixture into large lettuce leaves. It was still very yummy!!
