Quick and easy chicken fajitas with just one sheet pan to clean afterwards! This is my new favourite way to make one of my family’s favourite meals!
Mexican food is a favourite of everyone’s in my family. Good thing, since I make it at least weekly. Probably more often.
Whenever I’m not sure what to make for supper, it’s Mexican food of some sort that ends up on the table more often then not. Even if we feel like pasta, which isn’t typically Mexican, I will usually lean towards something like this Mexican baked pasta instead of some other option.
Tacos in some form or another is definitely the absolute favourite here though. I think because everyone can make up their own, putting in whatever fixings they like. Even when it’s chicken fajitas, which typically don’t have a lot of toppings, we still put out all sorts of stuff like lettuce and tomatoes and cheese and black olives, just because my kids love all that stuff on their fajitas. Of course, they don’t touch the peppers and onions that the grown-ups here love so that could be why they want all the other stuff.
My husband and I are usually pretty happy with just the chicken, peppers and onions wrapped up in a tortilla with some sour cream and salsa. Sometimes with a little shredded cheddar cheese in there too. No idea if cheese is supposed to go in chicken fajitas or not (I doubt it) but it tastes great so who cares.
However you like your fajitas, these sheet pan chicken fajitas are amazing. Super fast and easy to make, and only one pan to clean up afterwards. It’s my new favourite way of making chicken fajitas!
The perfect meal for 30 Minute Thursday! You can also find a bunch of other 30 minute meals below the recipe from my blogging friends. Enjoy!
How to make Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas:
- instead of the chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in the recipe, you could also use 2 teaspoons of a seasoning mix like this taco seasoning if you like
- use a sharp knife (I have these knives and love them) to slice your chicken breasts in half before placing them on the baking sheet – if you leave them whole instead of slicing them so they’re thinner they will take longer to cook

I fixed it and the family raved. Some of us ate it without the tortilla. I bought HEB frozen Fajitas, squeezed 1/2 lime on them and put on the pan. (They cook fast. Can use chicken or beef.) I used half of the cumin and chili powder on the olive oil coated veggies. The fajitas come seasoned lightly. Extra fast and everyone like the meal. You can use hot sauce of your choice and/or sour cream on the side. If I had not been lazy and rushed, I would have made guacamole to go with it. (I believe HEB sells it frozen and it is really good.) Ha! Sounds like an HEB commercial, but I really do not work there.

Love this, delicious, easy recipe! It couldn't get much easier to make a meal, unless you could pass on some of your 'pixie dust' so that I could chop up my peppers the same way you chopped yours in the video. lol

Haha, I'm guilty of making Mexican food way too much in this house too! It's just so good though! I love how these fajitas are made all on one pan, so convenient!
