Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

Share this post

oven baked fajitasI have been on the hunt for easy, healthy, and filling meals since the kids went back to school. After school can be really crazy at my house, so I like to get dinner started in the morning when I have more time. This is the perfect weeknight dinner. I make this about once a week now. I make the marinade and add the chicken, peppers, and onions to the bag to sit in the fridge all day. I get the toppings prepped and ready and when it is time to eat, I bake off the chicken, warm the tortillas, and put everything out on the counter. The kids can add what they want and everyone is happy. Cleanup is a breeze and everyone loves this dinner. Win. Win. Win.

When I make the marinade, I change it up every time. Sometimes I add a little honey, a little lime juice, you can flavor it anyway that you like.

Hi! I realize this comment is long after your original post but this is one of my families favorite meals! Thank you so much for the recipe! I always let the meat and veggies marinate for at least one hour in the fridge and they come out so moist and tasty every time! And the clean up is awesome!! If there are leftovers (or I make extra) I chop up the chicken and veggies and we make Chicken fajita nachos with some black beans, cheese,Mexican crema and cilantro. Thank you so much for such a tasty and easy meal!

Hi! Do you think I can put my fajitas skillet in the oven? I don't have a durable stovetop to handle the iron skillet. :(

Excited to make these! Wondering, though, how many it will serve. I'm looking to feed about 6-7, (all boys, hah). Thanks!

I feed my family of 5 with no leftovers. I would double it for sure with all of those boys!
