One Pan, One Happy Family

There are times that call for elaborate family dinners. And then there are Wednesday nights. Or summer nights. Nights when all four kids have somewhere different to go. And those are sheet pan dinner nights. One pan, easy ingredients, pop it in the oven and tell everyone to wash up. These Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are not only so delicious, they make quick work of a healthy, flavorful dinner the whole family can get behind. They’re especially nice in the middle of a heatwave (whew, y’all, it’s hot here) when grilling is just too sweaty of an affair.

Fajitas are flexible by nature. Choose your favorite peppers (we like a rainbow!), slice up a big onion, and prep some chicken breast. Season and bake it all together. Then just let everyone pick their favorites to fill a warm tortilla. It’s impossible to go wrong! Especially with some fresh guacamole and easy homemade salsa. Yum!

How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

First, preheat the oven to 400°F.  Then pray a large rimmed sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray (or line with foil and spray for easier clean up). Next, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together the fajita seasoning ingredients. Add the chicken, bell peppers and onion slices to the prepared sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat evenly.

Sprinkle the fajita seasoning over the chicken and veggies and toss to coat again. Arrange in an even layer on the pan, making sure the chicken slices are not overlapping.

Roast in the oven, tossing halfway through the roasting time, until bell peppers are tender and chicken is cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.

  • Shredded Monterey jack and cheddar cheese
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges
