Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are the best way to have a no-fuss easy meal with tons of flavor that’s prepared and ready to eat in hardly no time! Boneless chicken breasts are cut into strips and cooked with fresh bell peppers and onions and a mixture of spices all on one sheet pan, to make this a quick & easy, simple clean-up and delicious weeknight meal!
How To Make Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
Full instructions are included in the recipe below, but here’s a quick overview:
Step One: Slice your chicken breast into strips. Set them on a large sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. I like using the non-stick aluminum foil for this recipe, but either kind will do!
Step Two: Slice each of your bell peppers and onion into uniform strips. I only use half of each bell pepper and onion then save the other half for another day. Once your peppers and onion are sliced, place them on the same foil lined sheet pan.
Step Three: In a small bowl, combine all of the fajita seasoning listed below. Mix together. Next drizzle oil on top of chicken breasts, bell peppers and onion, then sprinkle seasoning mix on top. Rub seasoning into chicken and veggies with your hand to make sure each piece is well seasoning. Wash your hands before moving to the next step.
Step Four: Transfer sheet pan to a preheated oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until done or internal chicken temperature reaches 165 degrees. Assemble fajitas just like you like it with chicken, bell peppers, onions and your favorite toppings, then enjoy!
Want Even More Bold Flavor?
Try marinating your chicken for at least an hour in this simple chicken fajita marinade. This is another great fajita recipe that involves marinating the chicken first for an hour. Once chicken has marinated, you can either proceed with cooking it on a sheet pan in the oven or in a large skillet on top of the stove with the peppers and onions. Marinating the chicken gives it a more concentrated bolder flavor, but if you don't have the extra time, then stick with this quick sheet pan recipe and you'll be good to go!
