Simple Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas for dinner

The ingredients are simple and basic; you will need chicken breasts, bell peppers, onion, spices like chili powder, paprika and cumin, olive oil, salt & pepper, and lime juice. Serve over tortillas with your favorite toppings like salsa, avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese and cilantro. Rice and beans make great side dishes.

To prepare the dish simply de-seed and slice the bell peppers and onions, cut the chicken into thick strips, combine with olive oil and spices over baking sheet in a preheated oven of 400 degrees.  Stir once at 10 minutes in and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink. Set your oven on broiler setting and broil fajita filling for 1-3 minutes, or until fajitas start to slightly char. Then remove fajitas from oven and generously squeeze lime over everything, a little finishing salt and cilantro.

 

I like to prepare all the other toppings and set on table while the fajitas are in the oven so once they are out of the oven we are ready to eat!
