Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Updated: Jul 18, 2023

This recipe is a family favorite because it's so easily, delicious and is packed with flavor. Peppers are an excellent source of nutrients such as vitamin C and vitamin A. The chicken provides protein, and when paired with black rice and avocado, the healthy fats, fiber, and complex carbohydrates make this an easy balanced meal that everyone in the family will enjoy.

Pro Tip: If you like this recipe, triple the fajita seasoning and store it in a glass jar. That way when you make this recipe again in the future, you only need to take out one spice jar instead of 8. It makes a difference!

Pro Tip #2: If you want this dinner on a night where you won't have much time to cook, slice the peppers and onions the night before and store in an airtight container. Marinate the chicken but drizzling olive oil and the fajita seasoning. This way you can reduce the prep to 2 minutes when all you need to do is add the veggies and chicken to a roasting pan and put in the oven.
