I enjoy a quick and simple supper. These sheet pan fajitas are simply that! They only take a few minutes to prep and the rest is performed in the oven. You can whip up some of our preferred spanish rice and a bowl of homemade guacamole . As soon as these come out of the oven, top them with your favoring mendings and supper is served!
We’ve made these fajitas at least 7 times over the previous few months. I think it’s safe to say they’re a favorite. They’re a little heavy on the prep work (meaning you’ve got ta slice peppers, onions and chicken) but besides that, they’re a breeze.
The onions and peppers get tossed on a HOT sheet pan. You toss on the chicken let it go up until it’s nice and brown.
After it comes out of the oven squeeze some lime juice over top (add a touch of newly sliced cilantro) and it’s ready to be feasted on- and trust me it will!
I’m not going to lie. We could eat these weekly and I ‘d be absolutely great with that. They’re insanely delicious and you can quickly personalize them by adding whatever garnishes you ‘d like. I’m all about the cheese, sour cream, salsa and lettuce. The hubby chooses cheese, sour cream, hot sauce and guac.
These easy, delicious, sheet pan chicken fajitas make sure to become a preferred! They’re oven-roasted to perfection!

* I prefer cutting the chicken against the grain. I find that this approach creates more tender strips of fajita meat.
