Oven Chicken Fajitas

I love making my own seasoning mixes… so much more flavours, cheaper and you know what’s in it. This was kid approved (even my picky one ate her’s) and hubby had what was to be my leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch. I did mine with mashed avocado topped with plain greek yogurt. Added a side lettuce salad for extra veggies.
