One Pan Baked Chicken Fajitas

We know that we have blogged a chicken fajita recipe before and boy are they good. We love that recipe but the problem is that it is time consuming and leaves a lot of dirty dishes to clean up. Sometimes we want tasty fajitas without much effort. For those days we use a fajita recipe that uses only one pan. Yes, ONE PAN. Clean up is simple and the entire meal is quick to put together... something everyone needs after a long hard day.

For about six fajitas:

100 to 150 grams chicken, sliced into strips
1 can diced tomatoes
1 onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, sliced
2-3 chilies, diced (depending on spice level you want)
1 Tbs oil
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano

Tortillas and toppings you want. We used cheese, sour cream, lettuce and hot sauce (yes, we know lettuce is not typical for fajitas but we like the extra crunch).

Preheat the oven to 200 C (400 F).

In a baking pan, mix the chicken, tomatoes, sliced onion and bell pepper, and hot chilies.

Pour the oil and herbs and spices over the chicken mixture and mix well so that everything is covered.

Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with warm tortillas and any toppings you want.


On the side we ate our favorite Mexican rice and nacho chips.

Oh was it soo good and the clean up was super easy with just one pan to wash.
