One Pan Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Happy #samplesunday !!

Today’s recipe is super easy, versatile, and great for lunch or dinner. Plus, it won’t create a bunch of mess for you to have to clean up. That’s a great thing to hear for us busy-bodies trying to get a nice meal on the table for everyone to sit down to and FINALLY relax. The added bonus: it’s healthy AND delicious! Therefore picky husbands (and even kids) will love this one.

As always, I lay out my ingredients first so I can grab from the pile as I work (it’s just easier).


From there, I preheat my oven to 400 degrees and lightly spray my sheet pan with Pam spray. Then I begin cutting my chicken into thin strips, cutting up a whole onion and few peppers or one whole bell pepper into strips.


Then I can take my fajita seasoning (Old el paso is what I used) and mix that with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl.


After that you can put your chicken and veggies on a sheet pan together, pour the fajita seasoning mixture over top, and make sure all of it is coated before baking for 15-20 minutes.


When the timer goes off, leave them in just a couple minutes longer and switch over to broil so your chicken and veggies will get a small char.

Then chow down!! Add some pico de gallo or fresh avacado too!


  • 1 Bell Pepper (or more to your preference) sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 – 1½ lb chicken breasts, ¼-inch thick slices*
  • 1 packet of Fajita Seasoning per pound of chicken
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil per Packet of Fajita Season

Optional Ingredients

  • Sliced Avacado
  • Pico de Gallo
  • Guacamole
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a sheet pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Cut your chicken into thin slices, and cut up your onion and pepper and throw onto sheet pan.
  3. In a small bowl, mix your fajita seasoning and olive oil. Pour mixture over the chicken and vegetables and coat evenly.
  4. Cook in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping and shaking halfway through. When the timer goes off, broil for another 2 minutes, watching closely, to get a bit of char onto the chicken and veggies.
  5. Place on a tortilla and top with optional ingredients or eat over a bed of greens.
