Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

As you can tell if you are following this blog… there are three things I love when it comes to cooking – easy, one pan recipes that are Mexican!For anyone that loves to cook, I’m sure you’re in the same boat as me where there are just days that you feel a little lazy (especially during the week).

So on those days I’m always looking for something quick and easy that tastes good. And try as I may, a lot of times I come back to these sheet pan chicken fajitas. Really the only work is cutting the peppers and onions. Other than that you throw it in a sheet pan and let the oven do the work!

If you want to make it even easier, you can just buy some fajita seasoning, but I usually always have the spices needed to make a homemade fajita seasoning. So for your lazy days (especially if it’s Taco Tuesday), give this one a try! Enjoy!
