To make this dish, we start by cooking sliced chicken breasts in a skillet with a combination of fajita seasoning until they are juicy and tender. Then, we add in onions and bell peppers to give it that authentic fajita flavour. Once the vegetables are cooked to perfection, we make a creamy sauce and add the pasta.
