I often use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken for  Chicken Fajita Wraps. It’s is a fantastic shortcut for a quick and flavorful weeknight meal.

The rotisserie chicken tastes great in these chicken fajita wraps.

I’m including a cilantro-lime sauce, which you can make the night before, or you can skip the sauce and just use a salsa.

I also prepare fajita seasoning in large batches and then store in an airtight container for later use. Making your own fajita seasoning tastes so much better than store bought and can help you save a few pennies at the grocery store.

A bit of advanced planning will make dinner time so much easier.
