Description

Sheet pan chicken fajitas made with spice-rubbed chicken and roasted with peppers and onions on a single sheet pan in about 25 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 11 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into small strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • Small flour or corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, juice squeezed

Fajita Toppings

  • Mexican blend cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa or Pico de Gallo
  • Chopped avocado or guacamole
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges (2 limes)
  • 12 sliced jalapenos
  • 1 diced fresh mango (optional)

Taco Seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F.
  2. Combine chicken, taco seasoning, juice from 1 lime, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl. Toss until chicken is fully coated in the seasoning. Place on one half of a greased 11X17 rimmed baking sheet.
  3. In a separate bowl (or same bowl), combine peppers, onions, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Toss until coated. Spread veggies on the other half of the baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. It’s OK if there are overlapping layers of veggies.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked through and veggies are tender and starting to turn golden (give veggies a toss halfway through roasting). You can broil for 2-3 minutes at the very end to slightly crisp veggies.
  5. While chicken and veggies are cooking, prep all fajita toppings. Wrap the tortillas in an aluminum foil packet and place in the oven for the last 5-7 minutes of roasting to warm. This is really important to prevent the tortillas from being too brittle, especially if using corn tortillas.
