Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Written by COA Nutrition Team On January 1, 2021

These super-flavorful, easy sheet pan chicken fajitas make a simple, trusty weeknight supper or quick and adaptable meal for a last-minute company—either way, it’s a winner.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin slices
  • 1 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
  • Small flour tortillas, warmed, optional
  • Avocado, optional
  • Cilantro, optional
  • Salsa or hot sauce, optional

 DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large bowl make a marinade using the taco seasoning, olive oil and lime juice.
  2. Toss the chicken, red onion and bell peppers together with the marinade. If you have time, allow to marinate, covered for 1 hour. If not, bake right away.
  3. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  4. Spread the chicken and vegetable mixture onto a rimmed sheet pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until meat is cooked through. If you want to add some char to meat and veggies, broil for another 3 minutes.
  5. Serve with warm tortillas, salsa, guacamole, avocado, sour cream and fresh cilantro.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Saving time on weeknights: Pre-cook pasta & Prep side salads ahead

Here are two tips that can save you precious time on those hectic weeknights when everything feels like chaos! On the weekend, make pasta ahead and refrigerate it in a Ziploc bag. It’ll keep for about a week. Heat it up in the microwave before serving. Buy all the fresh lettuce, shredded carrots and cucumbers you will need for the week, wash the lettuce and allow to dry, tear into small pieces add some shredded carrots & chopped cucumbers, store dinner size portions (portions size will depend on the number of people you’ll be feeding) in sealable bowls or zip-bags in the fridge (make sure to dry them very well and it’ll hold for up to 5 days). Instant side salads!
