Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas – Made with only 5 ingredients in just 30 minutes. A quick and easy dinner recipe that the whole family will love!
We love Mexican food at our house and make it at least once a week. These easy chicken fajitas are frequently on rotation, as well as slow cooker chicken tinga, Mexican stuffed shells, stuffed bell peppers and crockpot chicken taco bowls.
So I know I’ve mentioned this before, but my family loves Mexican food. We make it once a week and go out to our favorite Mexican restaurant once a month. My husband always orders fajitas and I usually get tacos. We love making both at home. It’s so much cheaper and healthier as well. But sometimes it’s nice to go out too. Mainly for the chips and salsa. I can’t get enough. :)
This chicken fajita recipe is seriously so easy to make and takes no time at all. If you line your pan with foil beforehand, you’ll have very few dishes. The thing I love about these easy chicken fajitas is that everything is cooked in the pan. Aren’t sheet pan dinners the best?! They save my sanity on busy weeknights.

Chicken Fajitas Ingredients
For these chicken fajitas, all you’ll need is 5 simple ingredients. I’m telling you, this chicken fajita recipe couldn’t get any easier.
Chicken: We like to use chicken in our fajitas, but you could use steak or shrimp too.
Bell peppers: I use a mixture of red, green and yellow bell pepper. Feel free to use pepper color of choice.
Fajita seasoning: To make it easier, I use store bought fajita seasoning…however you could make your own too.
Oil: I use about 2 tablespoons of olive oil for these chicken fajitas. The oil helps the fajita seasoning to stick to the chicken and veggies.
Tortillas: We typically use flour tortillas, but corn tortillas work great too. You could even serve the chicken fajitas over a bed of rice. If you want a low carb option, try making lettuce wraps with romaine lettuce.

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas …made with only 5 ingredients in 30 minutes. A quick and easy dinner recipe that the whole family will love!
- 3 bell peppers (sliced)
- 2 chicken breasts (about 1 lb, sliced)
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons Fajita seasoning
- 8 small flour or corn tortillas
- Kosher salt and pepper to taste
- Optional toppings: Fresh limes Fresh limes, chopped cilantro, avocado slices or guacamole, shredded cheese, sour cream
Preheat the oven to 415°F.
Place the bell peppers onto a large rimmed baking sheet and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, while you slice the chicken.
Then place the chicken on the pan and drizzle the olive oil over the top and sprinkle on the Fajita seasoning. Toss to coat.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are fork tender. I like to stir the vegetables half way through, and drain off any excess liquid from the pan around 15 minutes. If you like your vegetables a little more browned, bump up the heat to 425°F half way through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy the fajita chicken inside a tortilla, on top of a bed of rice or salad if you’re watching your carbs. Top with your favorite toppings.
If you have extra time, I like to marinate the chicken with the olive oil and Fajita seasonings for about an hour beforehand.
If you’d like to add more vegetables, feel free to add sliced onions, mushrooms and squash as well.
Wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the pan the last 5 minutes, to warm them up.
