  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 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


  • 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.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees using a meat thermometer. 
  • Halfway through roasting, place a small non-stick pan over low heat. Once the pan has heated, add one tortilla to the pan to warm 1-2 minutes per side.
    Alternately, you can wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and warm them in the oven during the last 5-6 minutes of roasting.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro, drizzled with lime juice and serve in a warm tortilla topped with Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce.
