Well, if you’ve been hanging around here for a while, you know I’m all about easy meals with big flavor and fewer dishes.

These Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas are already a hit, so naturally, my next step was to recreate those fajitas and turn them into these ultimate Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas — the perfect weeknight meal!

I’m happy to say, after discussing the results with my family, that my idea was a roaring success (never underestimate the power of a sheet pan-inspired recipe!).

How to make these Sheet Pan Fajitas:

These sheet pan chicken fajitas come together in almost no time at all. Running low on energy or just don’t have fresh peppers kicking around? Feel free to use frozen veggies — no need to defrost them first!

  1. Spread thinly sliced chicken breasts, sweet peppers, and onion in a single layer on a rimmed backing sheet (use parchment paper for easy clean-up if desired).
  2. Drizzle the ingredients evenly with a neutral-tasting oil and then coat with fajita seasoning.
  3. Bake and serve with tortillas, salsa, sour cream, or guacamole (or any other accompaniments your family loves).

How to make homemade Fajita Seasoning:

Store-bought fajita seasoning is super-convenient, but it’s also incredibly easy to make your own at home! Simply combine the following spices in a small bowl or jar (you can easily multiply these measurements to make extra!).

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Variations on these Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas:

  • Use thinly sliced pork tenderloin instead of chicken breast.
  • Swap in sliced chicken thighs for the chicken breast.
  • Warm up corn tortillas and use in place of flour tortillas, or serve in a bowl on a bed of rice.
  • Get creative with your veggies! Zucchini, carrots cut into matchsticks, and broccoli florets are tasty additions to this chicken fajita recipe.

How to use up leftover Chicken Fajita ingredients:

  • Add leftover chicken and vegetables to a quesadilla with Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese.
  • Make your own chicken fajita bowls! Reheat chicken, peppers, and onion and serve over basmati rice with black beans and pico de gallo.
  • Cut the chicken and veggie into smaller pieces and use the mixture to stuff homemade taquitos or tacos.
  • Stir the chicken fajita ingredients and a 1/2 cup of your favourite salsa into store-bought vegetable soup. Top with shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips.

    I’ve had this bookmarked for a few weeks and finally whipped it together tonight. It really was very tasty! My 3 boys (my 2 sons and hubby) all said this should get made again, along with my 4 year old saying we can have this for lunch tomorrow, too! I did 1 pan with steak, and 1 pan with shrimp (for my husband)! Of course, what’s taco night without cilantro and lime rice?!? Thanks for the great and easy recipe! I work overnights, so this will be a good one to do before work, as I can pre-chop everything! Thanks again!

    9/25/20 – this was quick and easy, I liked the fajitas seasoning mix here, too. Smells amazing, comes together quickly with some lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream. Highly recommended for a fast meal – makes a lot!
