Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Can we take a moment and appreciate how amazing sheet pan dinners are? They’re my favorite dinner to make because they come together really fast and cleanup is even faster.

I like to make this dinner on nights when we have a lot of after school activities because it’s a protein packed meal that my kids love eating. Their favorite part is being able to pick their own toppings and make the fajitas exactly how they want them.

I love that leftovers make an amazing lunch the next day!

What are the benefits of a sheet pan meal?

There are many benefits when it comes to sheet pan meals.

The biggest benefit is how easy they are to put together. The entire meal is made on one sheet pan, so you don’t have to worry about timing everything just right.

Another benefit is that clean up is very easy. Since it’s all on one pan you only have to wash the one pan instead of multiple.

Here is our meal plan when we have this for dinner:

Starch Side: Mexican Rice

Vegetable: Ejotes a la Mexicana (Mexican Green Beans)

Dessert: Carlota De Limon (Mexican Ice Box Cake)

We also love to have a lot of options for toppings! Our favorites include tortillas, avocado, sour cream, cilantro, cheese, and homemade salsa.

How to Store Leftovers

If you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge.

I recommend storing the chicken fajita mix and toppings separately to avoid anything getting mushy.

To reheat, microwave for 1-2 minutes until completely warmed through and then top with your favorite toppings!

Instructions

  • Prepare the Chicken and Veggies: In a large mixing bowl, add the diced chicken, olive oil,  paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, Mexican chili powder, dried oregano, cumin, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix until well combined. Then add the minced garlic, sliced red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, and sliced red onion.
