      I tried this recipe with meat from a whole boiled chicken because my husband likes dark meat better than just the breast , and it was very good..

      I made these once and were a huge hit. The measurements for the cumin and cornstarch aren't listed so I went with about a teaspoon of each. If it's supposed to be different, I'd like to try them as the recipe was intended. Please let me know.

      We do love chicken fajitas. I really like the fajitas platter that you feature above. That would make the meal very authentic, restaurant style, and would make a great gift for a Mexican food lover!
