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!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • tortillas, sour cream, salsa, and any other taco fixings you like for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts in half so that there are 6 thin chicken breast pieces instead of 3 thick ones.
  3. Lay the six pieces on one half of a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Spread the sliced bell peppers and red onion on the other half of the baking sheet.
  5. Drizzle everything with the olive oil, turning the chicken and rubbing the olive oil all over both sides.
  6. In a small bowl, stir together the chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper.
  7. Sprinkle this spice mixture over top of the chicken, and rub it in to both sides of the meat.
  8. Season the vegetables with a bit of salt and pepper and toss them to coat.
  9. Cook the meat and veggies for 14-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Don’t overcook it or it will be dry.
  10. Slice the chicken across the grain into thin strips.
  11. Serve the chicken and veggies on tortillas with salsa and sour cream, and any other taco fixings you like.
