Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

   Tis’ the season of healthy meals, and attempts at weight loss. I have a few pounds to lose myself, so I’m wanting easy and waist-friendly recipes. These Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas sounded right up my alley. There’s not much work to them. Just some slicing of veggies and chicken and then pop it in the oven and let it do the cooking for you.

   These Fajitas were so delicious! We wrapped ours inside small flour tortillas and added some low-fat sour cream and salsa. I devoured two in no time. I loved the flavors of the spices, and the chicken and vegetables were cooked perfectly. They will most definitely be added to the monthly dinner rotation!

  1. This looks amazing! Your blog is by far my favorite cooking blog and I always look at it when I am planning my weekly meals. I will defiantly be adding this to my menu this week, thank you! 🙂

  2. I was looking for something quick and easy tonight and found this sitting in my inbox. It was definitely very easy to make and everyone liked it. I may have had too much chicken (it was only 3 breasts, but they were big) as the flavor was a little too mild. I might increase the cumin and chili powder just a little next time if I have alot of chicken again. Thanks for the recipe! I have made 5 of your recipes now and we’ve loved them all. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

  3. I have tried this recipe twice since i found it on pinterest and my family loves it and i havent had any leftovers….During the summer when we fix chicken fajita kabobs we add pineapple too. I was wondering if i could add it to this and if so, do i bake it the whole time or add it closer to the end? Thank you for your blog. 🙂

  4. I just found your website today on facebook. Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your website. The recipes are unique and sound so delicious. I can’t wait to start fixing some of them. Thanks. 🙂

  5. I have made this before and plan on making it tonight. If you can find some chihuahua mexican cheese – it is yummers as well and has less fat and calories.

  6. Thank you for this easy fajita recipe! I found your recipe on Pinterest. I’ve been making these for a couple years. It’s the only way I make fajitas now! So easy and delish! Thanks!!!
