WHY SHEET PAN RECIPES ARE THE BEST

  • Easy to clean up – simply use parchment paper or aluminum foil that can easily be removed and discarded. Note: parchment paper is not safe at 425 degrees F or above. Do not broil anything with parchment paper on the sheet pan! Ask me how I know… šŸ˜‰ WHOOPS!
  • Everything comes together and cooks on one pan, requiring minimal effort.
  • They are not limited to dinners! You can make all sorts of desserts and breakfasts on them – such as my Easy Sheet Pan Breakfast Potatoes.
  • They are great for meal prep, as you can roast meats and vegetables together or separately. Roast as little or as much as you need to prep!
  • Endless options as far as what you can combine together to “fix it and forget it.”

INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THIS RECIPE

  • Chicken breasts
  • Spices – chili powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder
  • Olive oil
  • Veggies – bell peppers (any color), garlic, and onion

HOW TO MAKE THESE SIMPLE SHEET PAN CHICKEN FAJITAS

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Or spray with nonstick cooking spray, if preferred.
  2. Start by slicing the red onion and the bell peppers into 1/4-inch slices. If you like them to have a little extra crunch, slice them thicker.
  3. Toss the peppers, onions, and sliced chicken with olive oil and seasonings – either in a large mixing bowl or on the prepared sheet pan itself.
  4. Roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring/tossing halfway, ensuring the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F on a meat thermometer.

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander

Fajita Mix:

  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, (sliced 1/2" thick)
  • 1 red bell pepper, (sliced 1/4" thick)
  • 1 orange bell pepper, (sliced 1/4" thick)
  • 1 green bell pepper, (sliced 1/4" thick)
  • 1 medium red onion, (sliced 1/4" thick)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lime, (sliced into wedges)

Additional Items:

  • 8 flour tortillas
  • freshly chopped cilantro
  • Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce
  • Greek yogurt, diced avocado, cheese, or any of your favorite toppings

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Combine the ingredients for the seasoning into a small mixing bowl and the olive oil and minced garlic into a separate small bowl/ramekin.
  • Layer the chicken, peppers and onion strips onto the baking sheet making sure to create a single, evenly spaced layer.
  • Drizzle the chicken mixture with the olive oil and minced garlic, tossing everything with a spatula to thoroughly coat. Season with the fajita seasoning mix.
