Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas - chicken tenders, onions, peppers and homemade fajita seasoning. Can use a seasoning packet instead of homemade. SO good! Ready in 20 minutes! We like them better than the Mexican restaurant!!

I have a serious weakness for Mexican food, especially chicken fajitas. I could eat chicken fajitas every day. We normally grill our fajitas. I baked the fajitas this time because I wanted fajitas and didn’t marinate any chicken. I tossed the chicken and veggies with some fajita seasoning and thew everything in the oven. OMG! They turned out great. I absolutely loved the flavor!

This was SO simple to make. You could even toss everything together the night before and refrigerate it until you got home from work. I think this would be a great freezer meal too. Toss everything into a gallon freezer bag and pull it out when you are ready to bake. Either way, you must make these. Serve the fajitas with some black beans and rice for a midweek fiesta!

  1. This has become a staple in our house now. When I remember in the morning I will marinate the first 6 items in a plastic bag all day, I add the juice of a big lemon and a couple limes. But it is still great if I throw it together and pop it in the oven. Have made this probably 8 times in the last three months. Great recipe!!
