Easy Oven Chicken Fajitas

Pin It
Next to Italian food, Mexican food is probably my favorite type of cuisine. I love making it at home, but sometimes it can be a daunting task. When it comes to fajitas, you have to marinate the chicken, cook the chicken, sauté the peppers, sauté the onions. It takes a while! But what if I told you that you can throw all the components in a pan, bake it and get delicious fajita filing results? Well, you can! And here's the recipe how. Enjoy!

Fajita seasoning:
  • 1 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, optional
Other ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 onion, cut into thin strips
  • 3 tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 6 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed 
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, guacamole and sour cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all of the ingredients for the fajita seasoning in a small bowl and set aside

Place the chicken, peppers and onions in a 9×13 inch casserole dish. 

Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over the meat and vegetables and drizzle with canola oil. Mix so the vegetables and chicken are evenly coated.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove from the oven and squeeze lime juice over top.

Serve in tortillas with cheese, salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
