If easy, homemade dinners are your thing, this recipe is for you!

These baked sheet pan chicken fajitas are packed full of flavor, simple to make, budget friendly and SO delicious!

I usually have all of these ingredients on hand in the fridge and freezer, and if I remember to take out the chicken earlier in the day, I can have a great dinner on the table super fast that evening!

These fajitas would also be delicious with beef, pork or even shrimp. Try adding mushrooms, red, yellow or orange bell peppers, jalapeƱos, or skip the meat all together and make them vegetarian.

My family also loves tacos or fajitas over crushed chips for a salad instead of using tortillas. The possibilities are endless!

Simple meals like this at home make it easy to skip going out to eat, saving money and even getting the kids in the kitchen to help out with making dinner.

What is in Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas?

  • Bell pepper: The bell pepper comes in different colors including red, yellow, orange, green, white, and purple. Red peppers have the most nutrition, because they've been on the vine longest. Green peppers are harvested earlier, before they have a chance to turn yellow, orange, and then red. Red bell peppers have almost 11 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more vitamin C than green.
  • Cumin: Part of the parsley family and native to southwestern Asia including the Middle East. The dried seeds are used as a spice, especially ground and can be found in Mexican recipes or curry powder. 
  • Onion: The onion is a vegetable that is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. It's relatives include the garlic, shallot, leek, and chive. Onions contain antioxidants, red onions have the highest antioxidant amount.  Onions produce the chemical irritant known as syn-propanethial-S-oxide. This irritant floats up from the chopped onion and causes tears. Chill the onion prior to chopping to reduce irritation.
