I am all about quick and easy meals. I also love the ones where the clean-up is just as simple. This is a perfect “lazy dinner”. These chicken fajitas have all those delicious southwest flavors and require minimal effort. Tuesday Taco night just got a whole lot easier! 🙂

I love to make homemade guacamole for these fajitas, but store bought is fine, or you can just slice up some avocados.  If you’re not a fan of avocados then just leave them off. Go ahead and pile on whatever toppings you love or leave them plain. No matter how you finish them off, they’re amazing and you’re going to love them.

  • Chicken Mixture:
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips (about 1 ½ to 2 pounds of chicken)
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 medium yellow or white onion halved and cut into slices
  • Seasonings:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 10 Fajita size flour tortillas
  • Toppings: optional
  • Sour cream
  • Guacamole

  • In a large Ziplock bag, combine chicken with all the peppers and onion.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, oregano, red pepper flakes and pepper. Pour over the chicken and pepper strips. Seal bag and shake until everything is well coated. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and/or up to a few hours. (*I like to let mine sit in the fridge about 2 hours.)

  • Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

  1. I absolutely love these fajitas! The flavor from the seasoning is right on, but not overwhelming. They were so delicious, and I will make them often. I used chicken tenders and cut them in half lengthwise. They were the same size as the peppers and onion. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

  2. What temperature does the oven need to be??? I don’t see it in the recipe…..My sheet pan is ready and I need to preheat…….

  3. For some reason I can’t print out receipes. I don’t have the problem with other sites. You have some good receipes I wish I could print. Bummer !

    1. Im sorry to hear that, Jim. I just double checked and it’s printing fine for me. Again, I am sorry. Not sure what the issue is one your end.

    Loved this recipe. It was easy and most of prep was done before anyone arrived so we had more time to enjoy the family 🙂 It was great for all who came as they could customize their meal by what sides/toppings they added. It was fun to see that the food wasn’t too spicy and our grandson who is dairy free especially enjoyed the peppers.
