Fajitas are awesome, but they can take a lot of work to watch while they’re cooking, so we’ve simplified the process of cooking fajitas with our Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas recipe! This easy to follow recipe uses the “set it and forget it” technique of putting all of your fajita ingredients onto a sheet pan. Pop the sheet pan into the oven and in 25 minutes you’ll have perfectly cooked fajitas without you having to mind lots of pans! We used chicken tenders when we made this recipe because they’re already nicely trimmed for fajitas. All we did was cut them into uniform strips. However, if you prefer, you can take a whole chicken breast and cut it into strips as well. What’s your trick for perfect fajitas? Let us know in the comments below!
- 2 lb(s) Chicken Breast Tenders (cut into even strips)
- 3 Bell Pepper (cut into strips)
- 2 Yellow Onion (cut into strips)
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Fajita Seasoning
- Cilantro (fresh)
- Tortillas (chopped)
Add the sliced vegetables and olive oil to a bowl. Season to your taste with fajita seasoning and toss to coat. Set aside.
Lay out chicken tender strips and season to taste with fajita seasoning. Make sure all sides are covered with seasoning.
Evenly spread the chicken tenders and vegetables on a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. Place into an oven preheated to 400ºF and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn the broiler on high and cook for 5 more minutes, until the chicken reaches 165ºF.
Remove from oven and make fajitas from the sheet pan. Serve each fajitas with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
