Easy Baked Chicken Fajitas

Are you as into sheet pan dinners as I am? They’re all the rage at the moment, and deservedly so! They’re quick, easy, endlessly customizable. Plus, they’re generally pretty healthy too so I always feel great making them. What more could you want in a dinner?

I’ve made lots of different varieties, but these sheet pan chicken fajitas are one of my favorites. The chicken and vegetables all roast together in the oven, and everything comes out perfectly tender and flavorful! The best part is that you only need one pan to make them, so clean up is simple too!

Assuming your chicken is thawed and you’re a relatively speedy slicer, you could have this dinner in the oven with only about ten minutes of prep time. Then the oven does all the work, and you just get to smell the amazing smells and look forward to dinnertime!

How To Make Sheet Pan Fajitas

Oven Prep – Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees F and lining your baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper.

Slice & Dice – Cut your bell peppers, onions and any other vegetables you want into long thin strips. You’ll also want to cut the chicken into strips or bite-sized chunks.

Seasoning – To season the chicken and fajita veggies, toss them into a bowl with seasoning ingredients until everything is well coated. Then, spread them evenly onto the sheet pan and try not to overlap too much.

Cook – Bake the chicken fajitas for about 25-30 minutes in the oven. Just make sure the chicken has been cooked thoroughly before removing them. The peppers and onions should get nice and tender in the oven and just slightly charred. The chicken should come out juicy and flavorful. These sheet pan chicken fajitas are the best and always a favorite at our house!

Serving & Variations

It’s Better Homemade – I love to serve my fajitas with a warm batch of Homemade Flour Tortillas. Add a scoop of fresh Guacamole or Salsa and your taste buds will forever be indebted to you.

Where’s The Beef – If you love a good steak fajita, you can easily substitute beef for chicken.

Low Carb Option – While I prefer a delicious warm tortilla, you can easily cut that out and just throw everything into a bowl. That way you have a healthier low carb meal of vegetables and protein.
