Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

This is definitely going to be on repeat in our house from now on. These oven baked chicken fajitas are incredibly easy and incredibly good!!

The chicken falls apart.  I used chicken tenders so they were really easy to slice.  And I may have to add more chicken next time especially since I’m the only one that ended up eating the veggies in my tortilla!  I kept telling my husband that you literally cannot tell what you are biting into and that he would like the veggies, but…no go.

I mean it all just looks so pretty too right? Add the chicken, some oil, spices, mix right in the pan and bake!

I served the chicken and veggies on corn tortillas with cilantro and a squeeze of lime. I’ve also served it over rice. Top with sour cream or Greek yogurt if you like as well. Enjoy!


Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

Serving Size: 4

1/2 large yellow onion

2 bell peppers (I used 1 red and 1 green)

1 pound chicken breasts

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 lime

8 (6-inch flour or corn tortillas)

cilantro (optional)

sour cream (optional)


1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 tablespoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl and set aside. Cut the onion and bell peppers into 1/4-inch wide strips. Place them in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Slice the chicken breasts into very thin strips and add it to the vegetables.

Sprinkle the seasoning over the over the meat and vegetables. Drizzle the olive oil over everything and use your hands to toss the ingredients until everything is well coated. Bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring halfway through. Squeeze half of the lime over the chicken and veggies after it comes out of the oven.

Serve by scooping a small amount of chicken and veggies into the center of a tortilla. Top with cilantro, more lime and sour cream if desired.
