Yep I’m back at again with another sheet pan meal because they just make life so dang EASY!  These Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are SO delicious and have all your favorite Mexican flavors right on one pan.  Tender, juicy chicken, crisp peppers and onions, all tossed in a blend of spices like chili powder, cumin, garlic, and paprika, topped with fresh lime juice and cilantro.  You guys, seriously SO GOOD.

And super easy to make, easy to clean and definitely easy to eat!  Since my husband is eating low carb right now, he makes lettuce wraps with his chicken fajita mixture while I like to throw mine in a tortilla or over some brown rice.  Either way this recipe is a winner and I love topping mine with extra lime, avocado slices, salsa and shredded cheese!

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • chicken – you’ll need about 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch pieces, but you could use boneless skinless chicken thighs.
  • bell peppers – I used an assortment of red, green and yellow bell peppers, but feel free to use any combination of bell peppers you want. You could also add in sliced poblano peppers or jalapeño peppers if you’re feeling spicy!
  • onion – I used a yellow onion, but can be substituted with a white or red onion.
  • olive oil – this is to coat the chicken and veggies and I like to use a good olive oil that doesn’t have to be expensive, just make sure it’s cold-pressed and organic for the most flavor.
  • spices – a combination of chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper for the fajita seasoning.
  • lime juice – adds some freshness and a boost of flavor! Make sure to use fresh limes as bottled lime juice can taste bitter. You could also add a little lime zest for even more lime flavor!
  • tortillas – these are the vehicles used to hold the delicious chicken, veggies and all the toppings and you can use flour tortillas or corn tortillas. You could also skip the tortillas if eating low-carb and make a chicken fajita bowl or in lettuce wraps!
  • toppings – cilantro, avocado, fresh salsa, cheese – really whatever you’d like! My creamy avocado ranch tastes amazing drizzled on these fajitas.

How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

  1. Prepare chicken and veggies. Slice the chicken breasts into 1/2-inch strips and evenly slice the bell peppers and onion. Spread everything out on a large sheet pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Season with spices. Drizzle olive oil over top of the chicken and veggies and toss with spices, salt and pepper, making sure everything is evenly coated.
  3. Bake! Make sure the chicken and veggies are spread out in an even layer and place baking sheet in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, tossing everything halfway through.
  4. Serve. Drizzle chicken and veggies with fresh lime juice and sprinkle with fresh cilantro. Serve with tortillas or lettuce cups and desired toppings!

Sheet Pans I Love to Use!

Also I get a lot of questions about what pans I use for my sheet meals and I’ve found these pans to be fantastic!  They are nice and big with extra thickness for durability as well as deep so they can hold a lot of stuff.  I also think the price point is super reasonable as well for this quality!

Storage and Prepping

This whole meal can easily be prepped the night before too.  Simply chop up all your veggies and the chicken, make your seasoning ahead of time as well and store everything in the fridge until you are ready to assemble.  Then when you get home you can just throw everything onto your sheet pan and pop in the oven!  These would also make delicious meal prep bowls too that you could serve with brown rice or even this cilantro lime cauliflower rice

Being on maternity leave, even though I’m home all day, has had me so busy with the baby so sheet pan meals have been a total lifesaver over the past several weeks!  We usually keep a ton of chicken (or fish) and veggies on hand so prepping these meals at night when she falls asleep is really easy and I can just throw everything into the oven the next day!
