Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Easy, quick, healthy one-pan meals are essential during busy weeknights. I personally LOVE easy sheet pan meals, like this Cilantro Lime Chicken Fajitas meal. All you need to make this meal are the ingredients –of course!, a baking sheet, a cutting board, and a knife. It’s easy prep, easy cooking, and even easier cleanup. And, the best part, it takes less than 30 minutes to make!

These easy sheet pan chicken fajitas give you a flavorful meal that can easily feed an entire family, or can be used for meal prep. I tend to make this dish when I am preparing my weekly meal prep. This recipe makes 6-8 servings, depending on the size. I pair my chicken fajitas with cauliflower rice and avocado for a healthy, low carb meal filled with healthy fats and great nutrients.

What you need to make these Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

  • Cilantro: You’ll need some for cooking and some for garnish 
  • Lime: After all the ingredients are chopped and on the baking sheet, you’ll squeeze lime onto everything to give the meal the perfect zesty bite!
  • Chicken Breast: You can use chicken breast and slice them before baking, or you can use chicken cutlets for an even easier option
  • Peppers: The more peppers the better. I love colorful dishes so I use red, orange, and green peppers. I also like my food a tad spicy, so I throw in a few jalapenos and sometimes a couple habanero peppers.
  • Seasonings: You’ll want to season the food before baking to give you the most flavorful fajitas. You’ll need cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. 
  • Veggies: Chicken Fajitas does not normally have veggies mixed in, but we are making this at home so we have room to make it a bit more healthy and add some tasty vegetables. Zucchini works best as it absorbs the flavors of the seasonings, peppers, and chicken. It also tastes great in a warm tortilla with salsa and peppers on top!

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil or a silicone baking sheet.
  • Slice the peppers, onion, and zucchini into bite-sized strips. If using chicken breast, slice the chicken breast into smaller pieces. Transfer to the baking sheet.

Hi Mila! I couldn’t agree more! I make mine on foil and simply throw the foil away after everything is cooked. So easy for clean up!
