We’re making chicken fajitas easier and with better flavor thanks to the Traeger Cast Iron Fajita Plate. Begin by placing the cast iron plate directly on the grill and preheat for 30 minutes. From there, add strips of onion and peppers, and cook the chicken next to the plate directly on the grill. That’s all you need to do to serve up sizzling wood-fired flavor.
