This will be a recipe that you use over and over because it’s so easy to whip up. Once the peppers, onions, and chicken are thinly sliced all you have to do is mix up the seasonings and toss. Then throw everything on a sheet pan and the oven does the rest. Dinner is done!

Sheet pan fajitas make for a perfect busy weeknight meal. They are simple, healthy, filling, and so yummy.

What do you serve with sheet pan fajitas?

You can serve with tortillas, pico de gallo, guacamole or serve over lettuce to create salad. Spanish rice recipe would be a great addition as well.

Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast?

Yes! Using chicken thighs will turn out so juicy and tender. Use whatever you have on hand. 

Can you freeze sheet pan fajitas? 

In my opinion fajitas are best fresh, but you can easily bake this and then freeze for later. Sheet pan fajitas also work great for meal prepping. 

Make this meal your own:

Don’t love corn tortillas? Use flour! Want to add cheese and guacamole? Do it! Want to up the ratio of veggies to meat, by all means. This is one of those meals that are easy to customize to meet what you have on hand your preferences. Enjoy the flexibility!

This recipe is from my cookbook Family Dinner Made Easy: Fall Recipes and it’s so good! This book is 8 weeks of meal plans (5 dinners, 1 dessert, 1 snack per week with full shopping list) that are easy family friendly meals. It’s available in both digital and hardcover book form.

Sheet Pan Fajitas is a quick and easy meal with chicken, bell peppers, and onions. Super fast to make and requires very little hands on time. Bonus, this recipe is in my fall cookbook! 
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients 

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken,, cut into ½-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large bell peppers,, cut into strips (any colors you prefer)
  • 1 medium white onion,, cut into thin strips
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro,, optional
  • 12 small corn or flour tortillas for serving
  • Lime wedges, sour cream, grated cheese, guacamole, , optional for serving

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F., and spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray (the baking sheet should be roughly 17×12 inches).
  • In a small bowl, add the chili powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine and set aside.
  • Add the chicken to the sheet pan and drizzle with the olive oil. 
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over the chicken, and toss well to combine. 
  • Add the bell peppers and onion to the sheet pan, and toss gently to combine.
  • Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Check a few of the largest pieces to make sure they register 165 degrees F. on an instant-read thermometer. 
  • When the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven.
  • Toss lightly to combine again. 
  • Drizzle the pan with the juice of 1 lime and sprinkle with chopped cilantro if using.

Notes

  1. This recipe is really easy to scale up and cook for a crowd! It’s a favorite at our house to serve friends and family. 
  2. You can add additional peppers and onions to your liking. I normally add another pepper or two because I like them the most and hope to have leftovers. 
  3. Sometimes I’ll serve the fajita toppings over chopped lettuce with additional toppings like cheese and salsa to make an easy fajita salad.

    This is a great recipe! I was hesitant about not using the sizzling skillet method for fajitas, but this turned out delicious. I prepped the chicken, veggies and seasoning mix in advance so all I had to do at dinner time was toss everything together and bake. Everything was cooked perfectly after 20 minutes. This recipe is a keeper!
