Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas


I originally shared these Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas two years ago, since then they’ve become a go-to weeknight dinner at my house! These sheet pan fajitas are brimming with those Mexican flavors we can’t get enough of, they’re a breeze to throw together, and clean up couldn’t be easier.

Baked Chicken Fajitas – So Easy!

You know how I love my easy dinner recipes, especially when they turn out to be something my whole family loves! This is definitely one to add to your recipe book. Even though these baked Chicken Fajitas aren’t seared in a flaming hot cast iron pan they are still packed with flavor and will leave you craving more! I love that this makes a big batch, because we all love these fajitas!

This is definitely the perfect lazy dinner. It has all those delicious southwestern flavors and only requires minimal effort. Lazy Monday night meal here we come.


How to Make Chicken Fajitas in Oven

You don’t even need a mixing bowl to toss these chicken fajitas together, you simply place the chicken and veggies on the sheet pan, sprinkle it with a fair amount of this DIY fajita seasoning, then you drizzle it with olive oil and give it a good tossing.

Throw the all chicken fajita goodness in the oven and boda bing boda boom, you have baked chicken fajitas! This is how dinner is done!

Even Clean-up is Easy!

And yet another thing I really love about this recipe is the fact that it’s all baked together in one sheet pan – of course meaning doesn’t get much easier!

Try these incredibly delicious Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas this week, you likely won’t find a single piece leftover in the pan by the time dinner is done. In other words, I have the feeling your family will really love these too.

I made half the recipe (1 large chicken breast), 1 red pepper, 1/2 onion and a hand full of fresh green beans. Seasoned with garlic, olive oil and a lot of Cajun seasoning. Topped with sour cream and verde salsa. Looks like 1 dinner and 2 lunches for work. Green beans were a pleasant surprise! April 18, 2017 at 8:17pm Reply

I make a sheet of this for the family and a sheet for me with just veggies and it’s absolutely delicious. I just substitute baby bella mushrooms for the chicken and I don’t miss the meat at all! This is one of the easiest dinners to make in a short amount of time. I’ve even used frozen chicken before and it was just fine! September 13, 2017 at 9:13am Reply

  • Maxine: Loved this meal! I made it tonight for dinner and it was a hit. I really liked that the taco seasoning was homemade. I didn’t have an onion, lime or cilantro on hand — so I skipped those items and it still turned out great. It was such an easy / fresh meal.

    Served the fajita mixture on top of salads with a dollop of quacamole and sour cream. It was a great way to liven up salad night….but would be great in tortillas too. Thanks for sharing! September 13, 2017 at 4:58pm Reply

  • Laura: This meal is awesome. The first time I made it I didn’t read the whole thing through before cooking (I was so jazzed about the one sheet) and didn’t realize it made fajitas. I didn’t have tortilla shells so I served it over rice and it was delicious. Thanks so much! November 8, 2017 at 7:41pm Reply

  • Margie: Love this. January 19, 2018 at 6:55pm Reply

  • Teresa: While this was an easy recipe to prep, it didn’t come close to many other fajita recipes I have made. The vegetables lacked the yummy caramelization you get from a cast iron skillet and the chicken, (while being well seasoned) was dry. I used air chilled organic chicken breast. I’ll be going back to adding 10-15 minutes more to my prep time. It’s well worth it. January 28, 2018 at 4:15pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Sorry to hear that. You could try broiling for a portion of the cook time and cut back on the time a little to make up for that high heat. You may get some browning that way, a dark sheet pan helps a little too. January 28, 2018 at 9:23pm Reply
