Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are the easiest fajitas you’ll ever make! Instead of slaving over a hot cast iron pan sweating and stirring up a storm, ease back with a glass of wine instead. Let your oven do the work.

This is a one pan meal you won’t forget. We keep making them again and again because they’re ready in 30 minutes and everyone loves them. They’re as good for a casual dinner with your family as they are for a party. And you can serve them straight from the pan for a beautiful presentation.

Best of all, this is a healthy recipe because there’s no added fat – much healthier than a restaurant. And since it’s a one pan recipe, there’s minimal clean-up. Woot!

How To Make Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

To make these fajitas, start with … you guessed it,  a sheet pan. That’s just a fancy name for a regular 13×18 inch baking sheet.

You’ll need to invest about 10 minutes to cut up an onion, a few bell peppers and some chicken breasts. Then toss them onto the pan and add the spices in the recipe and a quick drizzle of oil.

Don’t be afraid to give all the ingredients a quick toss using some tongs. Then bake for 20 minutes, at which point the chicken should be mostly cooked through.

Remove from the oven and make some space on the pan. Then add the tortillas on the edge to allow them to heat up, as the pan goes back in for a final 10 minutes. At this point get your condiments ready for serving!

We always find it’s best to allow everybody to assemble them while they’re hot out of the oven, just as you would with regular fajitas. You can also do a few for presentation if you’re entertaining.
