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
