Quick and easy way to prepare homemade, flavorful fajitas for a crowd!
Quick and easy way to prepare homemade, flavorful fajitas for a crowd!
This was surprisingly delicious! I didn't have time to marinate for more than 15 minutes. Used one of each green pepper, red pepper and rather large onion. Cut up boneless chicken breast into 1" pieces. I did put everything into a Ziploc bag to marinate---I was thinking I might just do everything on the sheet pan, but am glad I did the bag. Was easy and could really tumble everything around to get coated with the spices and oil. I did not have any cilantro or lime and didn't miss it---although I do love cilantro! Cooked as stated---no one was ready for dinner yet and had to keep hot in oven for about an extra 15 minutes...and didn't seem to hurt the dish. Very good! Served in flour tortillas with avocado, sour cream, cheddar and hot sauce with a side of rice and beans.Read More
Followed recipe exactly. Marinated for about 90 minutes. Cooked 20 minutes and chicken and vegetables were done just right, juicy and tender. My problem with the recipe was that the spices were just not enough seasoning. I tasted at 15 minutes bake time and sprinkled packaged fajita seasoning fairly heavy over contents in pan and cooked another 5 minutes. Then it was delicious, spicy and tasty!Read More

Very good! Although I used 2 sheet pans and doubled the seasoning. One pan was for the chicken which I marinated for 6 hours(used 6 chicken breast sliced thin with the full amount of spices) . Also didn't use the full amount of oil.. Just drizzled in some olive oil. I marinated the onions, and 2 red bell peppers for 2 hours with only a drizzle of olive oil and full amount of spices. When ready to cook I planced them on their own baking sheet along with some sliced mushrooms (approx 3 Cups). The Lime really makes everything pop.. I'm a huge sucker for Lime so didn't measure that. Served Mine in a whole grain wrap with some Avacado. Will definitely make this again. My only suggestion is for people that like a lot of flavor definitely double spices, and no need for that much oil.. Just drizzle.

This is a good dish and very easy to make; but, in my opinion, it needs more seasoning. If you don't like a lot in your food then this is for you. Next time I make this, I will double the seasonings. After cooking the chicken and vegetables, I put this under the broiler for a few minutes to char everything just a little bit. Very good dinner served with flour tortillas, salsa, sour cream, and shredded cheese, and Mexican rice on the side.
We have this once a week! I use the Easy Taco Seasoning from this site instead of the first ingredients. It is the easiest, tastiest recipe of all time. I use this process to make sheet pan stir-fry too. Just change up the spices, add some soy sauce to the marinade and add sliced zucchini, mushrooms, etc.
This is an excellent idea and the chicken was so moist and flavorful. I used fajita seasoning instead of buying the spices separately.
This was a great recipe, however I did make some minor changes. I used olive oil in place of what was suggested, used 1 packet of Taco Bell original taco seasoning and 1 packet of Taco Bell mild seasoning in place of the spices suggested, added about a teaspoonful of minced garlic, cayenne pepper, oregano, onion powder w/parsley and concentrated lemon juice to the marinade mixture and served with taco rice and re fried beans. The hubby and I loved it and will be adding it to our weekly recipes. Thank you for a great recipe! Kept in fridge for about 1. 5 hours before cooking.
Comments from my kids: "Why haven't you made this before?" "You should make this again and again!" I forgot to do the cilantro and lime when it came out of the oven. Served this with flour tortillas, shredded cheese, sour cream, and refried beans. Easy meal that was enjoyed by all!
Loved it I followed another reviewers suggestion and doubled the spices, It was wonderful!!
It was really good. I almost doubled the seasoning and used a couple tablespoons of olive oil two coat the chicken and vegetables. I cooked the chicken for ten minutes first and added the veggies for 12-15 minutes after that. The chicken was very moist, tender and yummy. This is almost a 5 star, simply because it was pretty taste and quickly prepared. Great weekday meal especially if you season the chicken and prep the veggies the night before
Such an easy, delicious meal! Definitely double the seasoning but not the oil. I use 4 chicken breasts sliced in strips and whichever bell peppers I have on hand sliced in thin strips. I like to add tomatoes to mine, preferably fresh but I’ve been known to throw in a can of stewed tomatoes, drained. Toss it all into a large ziplock bag and marinate in refrigerator. Bake on sheet pan and turn on the broiler for a minute or two at the end.
Wow, Ive done fajitas for years, but these are quick, easy and delicious. I did cook at 425 for about 5 extra minutes. Next time I will cut the tenderloins in half. Delicious!
Believe me....if you want an easy, tasty way to prepare fajitas....this is it!!!! I did double up on the garlic, onion and cumin powders and next time I will add more cayenne pepper for extra spice. I also baked this until the bell peppers started to burn on the edges and that really added to the overall flavor. Really a great recipe and thank you themoodiefoodie for submitting this. I will now fix fajitas no other way!
I made the recipe as it is written. Mixed the marinate, dropped the veggies and chicken in a plastic bag in the morning and cooked it that evening. Easy and fast! With great results! Will defiantly make again. I served it with guacamole and chips. Would also be good with flour tortillas, sour cream, and cheese, and any other traditional Mexican food ingredients....
This recipe is one of my favorite Mexican / Tex Mex recipes on this site. It's easy and quick, with ingredients I usually have around and most of all, it fixes my fajitas craving! The only change I make is to double the salt and cumin. I serve in whole wheat tortillas, topped with guacamole, sour cream and Mexican cheese.
This was amazing! The only thing of significance I changed was to add the lime juice to the marinade. I used olive oil instead of vegetable and turkey breast cut into strips. I probably marinated for 3 hours and it was plenty of time but I would not hesitate to go for more. I cut up an onion and a red and a green pepper. In my opinion I would like the veggies cooked a bit longer, but that’s just a preference. Baked for 20 min. Will probably aim for 15 next time and there WILL be a next time!
This was great and very easy to prepare! Based on other reviews, I used less than 1/4 cup oil and increased the amount of each of the spices and herbs slightly. I also added the lime juice to the seasoning before marinating for 2 hours or so. I served with warmed flour tortillas, freshly made guacamole, sour cream, fresh lime wedges and chopped cilantro on the side (as my husband is not a big fan). Loved it!
used 2 packages of chicken tenderloins cut in half lengthwise, doubled the spices but not the oil for the marinade. Used 2 peppers and one large red onion
I come 2 this site 4 everything! It is THE BEST pale to find any recipe U want. U can also put in a list of ingredients & they make suggestions 4 U! I LOVE trying new recipes & using different spices... not just butter & sugar. They have very healthy alternatives as well. AWESOME!! LOVE IT!!
I doubled the spice recipe, marinated my chicken all day and baked on parchment paper. This was really good. Super super easy. Makes a great weeknight meal when prepare chicken in the morning to let marinate and just bake in the evening. This has been added to my supper rotation.
Loved this recipe. So much neater and easier to make in the oven than on the stove top. I did have extra chicken so I used 2 lbs of chicken, 3 peppers, and 2 sweet onions. Because of that I did double the spices and oil and put the chicken in one gallon bag to marinade and the vegetables in another. I agree that I could have cut down on some of the oil but it was still good. I marrinated for close to 2 hours. I also cooked them on separate sheet pans and rotated mid way through cooking (each pan was pretty full). I actually forgot the lime at the end which I am sure would have added to the flavor. Everyone enjoyed it and I will definitely make this again. Thank you for an easy tasty recipe for a family favorite.
These were good and easy. I liked how the chicken stayed tender but the peppers and onions didn't get too soft. I marinated for 2 hours and could barely taste the seasonings. Next time I plan to marinate all day.
This was excellent and so easy! I doubled the spices, added some chipotle chili powder, used fresh garlic, and omitted most of the salt. I added some lime juice to the marinade, then added more when it was finished cooking. Very delicious!
Made this for dinner tonight, soo easy and very good, served with rice and tortillas. Excellent, will keep this recipe.
Followed recipe exactly except I substituted parsley for the cilantro. Absolutely delicious! Served with rice and sour cream and my kids loved it. Will be making again!
Made the recipe as is and marinated for 2 hours. This was lacking in seasoning for us. Will make the recipe again, but will double the amount of the dry seasonings and I think it will be perfect for our tastes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I made it and it came out great!!!! My son had a Mexican game night and these were a hit!
I made this for tonight's supper. I forgot to buy the wraps so we just served it with rice. I liked it but I didn't LOVE it so I'm giving it 4 stars. I think next time I'll add another spice or two to the recipe. I don't like cumin or cilantro so didn't use them and now that I think about it, I forgot to add the lime juice at the end. That may be what was missing. Everything else was as called for in the recipe though. We'll definitely be having this again.
I made this to use up some leftover peppers. It was very good. Even my husband, who tends to be a food critic, loved it.
So easy and so good! I made mine on the stove top in a skillet and like others, mostly doubled the spices. I think 1.5x is the perfect balance.
I made a version of these tonight and they were FABULOUS ! Use your own 'tweaks' with what you have . we used whole wheat tortillas, fresh avocado , lettuce for a super healthy meal ! I'll make this over and over again. didn't really need that oil, I just sprayed a little EVOO spray , cook on parchment and just throw away NO CLEAN UP ! I'll make this forever
Cut up all chicken and peppers/onions the night before so the prep work was done. Marinated about 4+ hours before cooking. Chicken was so tender. Very good recipe and many compliments!
Fantastic! I used it along with the fajita seasoning. Will definitely make it again.
Big hit in my home. I made it with green, yellow and orange peppers and was delicious. Very easy to make. I did heat the baking sheet before putting the mixture in it, helped with cleanup. Recommend this to all that like fajitas.
This was delicious! I doubled the recipe and used 3lbs of chicken tenderloins. Because I do not really like green peppers, I used mostly red peppers which are a little sweeter. I did not have time to marinate it for 15 minutes or longer but it turned out just as delicious. Because I doubled the recipe I had to use two pans to cook the mixture in. Instead of 15 or 20 minutes I left it in for 30 minutes. It was tender and crispy all at the same time. This goes great in fajita bowls with blended cheeses and sour cream or in tortillas. I made this a few times already and will never use packaged seasoning again.
This turned out great. So easy for a dinner after work!
Wonderfully easy. I used prepackaged chicken strips from GFS and pre sliced peppers from the grocery. Added some frozen sliced peppers I made from some I had bought on sale. Marinated overnight as my dinner partner went directly to bed after work. I used a one gallon freezer bag for marinating. Will use a two gallon bag next time. Baked on parchment paper so clean up was a snap. Served on Cinco de Mayo eve. Guests raved about it. Served with flour tortillas heated on the stove grill and warmed in a pan set on low flame. I have been informed that I WILL make this again.
This recipe came out absolutely delicious! The best part of it was that it only took 20 minutes to cook. You could literally prep it the night before, and when you get home just pop it in the over. It all came out super favorable. The only thing I swapped out was the vegetable oil for the olive oil. Definitely going to be making this over again!
This couldn’t be simpler. Delicious, fast, easy clean up. Perfect for entertaining . I agree with others double up the seasoning or use Fajita package mix. I have done both.
I love this recipe. Very easy and full of flavor. I marinated the veg and chicken in a large ziplock bag for 6 hours (just because I had a busy day) and I used about twice the spices specified. I preheated a perforated grill pan on the propane grill for 5 minutes, then scooped out some of the veg & chicken onto the sizzling pan. That's when I realized what a great recipe this would be for a camping trip or entertaining outdoors. Because everything is ready to go straight from the marinade ziplock bag. You just take the whole ziplock out to the grill and ladle out your desired amount of food on the grill pan, zip up what remains in the bag and put it back in the cooler until you need to feed more people. Please don't forget the cilantro and lime. (And on the grill I kept the temp at about 400 and it took 15 minutes to cook. Make sure you get some grill marks on those peppers--try using red & yellow, as I prefer them vastly over green peppers . YUM!) What a great thing to have on hand in the refrigerator when the teenagers and friends are in and out throughout the weekend.
Double the dry seasoning 2 lbs of chicken 1 onion 1 red pepper 2 green peppers Perfect
This was really good and very easy. A great weeknight dinner
Loved! Makes fajitas a little less daunting being able to prep and marinate ahead of time, and bake in oven instead of watching on the grill. Was done in 20 minutes, but baked an extra 5 to try and crisp it up a little. Next time will put under broiler for a few minutes at the end.
Delicious, healthy and easy to clean up! My girlfriend and I loved it, split the recipe in half too! I thought the seasonings were just about right but I can see how others may want more of a kick.
Loved....doubled seasonings for marinating, just to try(except cayenne haha). I had to go to store for the peppers and honestly didn’t realize that all of the veg was supposed to go in there too so chicken was by itself for maybe an hour or so I added veg after cutting up and just mixed up before dumping in pan. Next time I’ll be sure to put veg in from the get go but it was honestly so delicious even though I messed up that part ! The family raved! I’ll be making this again and again and again. Thank you!
I made this recipe today as written, no changes. So good! Served along with corn tortillas and sour cream this dinner was a hit.
I made this last night. The only thing that took time was slicing the onions and peppers. Only 1 pan to clean up! I wrapped the flour tortilla's in foil and put them in the oven long enough for them to warm. Recipe was very good. I will make this again.
This recipe was very tasty. Actually my girlfriend is the one that cooked it. I noticed toward the end, she had the fajitas in a frying pan. She told me the sheet pan just didn't brown it enough. Perhaps pans and ovens vary, but in the end getting a little extra browning in the frying pan seemed to work best. In any case the flavor was really good and the whole family loved them. We served them on mini street taco size flour tortillas with some avocado, sour cream and fresh salsa. This one is a keeper
Great flavor, easy to assemble and simple ingredients. Definitely a make it again, and again.
Great favor and easy to prepare.
So tasty and easy! Will definitely be making this again!
These were great and even better the next day. Served on warm tortilla with fresh avocado and corn. Would also be great over brown rice. Will make again!
Simple and delicious
Really good! Everyone in family enjoyed. Spices were fairly low key (will add a bit more next time) - but that left everyone room to adjust to their liking with hot sauce or sour cream. Some ate them on corn and others on wheat flour tortillas. Will definitely make again.
it was ok. I marinated veggies separately from the raw chicken for 2 hours. yes add more of the spices you like. we served it open face on a tortilla and added different toppings like sour cream , avocado ,cilantro and tomatoes. . I used olive oil instead .
I made this exactly as written. Flavorful and easy. I got everything else ready while the meat and veggies were baking.
Super easy recipe! I only marinated for 20 ish minutes due to time constraints but it still had flavor and was so good! It was perfect as a family meal. I would have added more seasoning if it were for me and my husband but since our kids ate it, we found the seasoning appropriate. Next time, I’ll plan ahead and marinate for longer!
Added an extra half pound of chicken, doubled the spices, left oil as is. Family enjoyed it!
This is my go-to dish when I want fajitas. It's easy to make and my family loves it!
This is one of the best finds I've come across in the last ten years since I've been on this site. We love fajitas. I use the grill for them in the summer. This time of the year I always make them on the stove. The chicken comes out rubbery and the vegetables mushy (not to mention the greasy mess on the stove). Frankly, I'm embarrassed that I never thought to do them on a sheet pan in the oven. I followed this recipe exact, but added a small amount of liquid smoke to the marinade for more of a grilled flavor. I baked for 15 minutes. The chicken was tender and the vegetables not crunchy and not mushy.....but perfect. The clean up was minimal!!! I'm so glad I found this.
Easy and a family favourite! Have made this recipe at least a half dozen times and only change was to double the spices.
Quick, easy, boyfriend loved it so I will make it again!
This was mouth-wateringly good. I used three tablespoons of olive oil (it was plenty) and probably a third more of the spices. After one bite hubby immediately asked me to put it into the dinner rotation. So easy, flavorful and good! Rivals restaurant fajitas, in my opinion. I served it with lime, corn tortillas and guacamole. Rice and beans not needed unless you’re hearty eaters.
I doubled the recipe and added lemon juice, minced garlic, sliced mushrooms, tomatoes, and jalapeños peppers. Also went heavier on the seasonings. Filled a half sheet pan and a full sheet pan. Baked for 30 minutes until the peppers got a tiny bit of charring on the tips. Served with seasoned brown rice (with chicken bouillon and celery seeds), black beans, sour cream, lime wedges, and chopped green onions (didn’t have cilantro)and warmed white corn tortillas. Everyone enjoyed it.
Loved it, indeed! Super easy and delicious. Will make this recipe again and again! Thank you for the recipe.
Great flavors! I followed the advice of others and doubled the spices, though without the cayenne. I prepared in two batches - first with the veggies, adding mushrooms, which I set aside on the sheet pan; and second with the chicken, which I let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes. Baked as directed for 20 minutes, stirring once. I will definitely make again and am so happy I never have to buy one of those high sodium spice packets again.
This was very easy. I agree with the other raters who said it needs more spices, though. Although I had read the reviews, I did not increase them because my kids do not like too many spices; however, I will increase them next time because it was pretty bland. All in all, a great recipe which is so easy to prepare and cook. I prepared it in the morning and cooked it for dinner. To be fair, I didn't use cilantro (don't like it) or lime (forgot), so perhaps the flavor really pops with it.
I did a triple recipe of these for a party and they were a hit. I marinated everything for 24 hours, because I was prepping food the day before. I thought the seasoning level was perfect, and it was really easy to throw everything together on a pan. I cooked mine on convection which helped brown things nicely. Will definitely keep this one around!
Made it just as described. Served on little tortillas. Great easy weeknight dinner.
Great fajitas! I made two pans. Family love it and the leftovers were even better
Doubled the spices as others recommended. So easy and everyone loved it! Had salsa, guacamole and sour cream and Spanish rice.
Perfection. Best recipe I have found to to date. Served with home , Made refried beans and all the sides you would expect. Yum, yum, yum.
Made exactly according to recipe. I believe that is the only way to give an honest assessment. It was convenient. However for my family’s tastes it was a bit bland. For those who prefer milder flavors it is fine how it is. We like stronger, more intense flavors. Will make personal preference adjustments and try it again.
Made close to as written. except I added mushrooms and added a bit more seasoning. Marinated for 45 minutes. Served on tortillas toasted and melted cheese on them. Topped with sour cream and avocadoes. Tasty and super easy to make! Will make again!
Make this! SO easy and delicious. I doubled the spices.
Followed the recipe exactly. So easy and the flavor was wonderful Will for sure make it again. In fact I am having a small gathering this coming weekend and this is on the menu.
Really good. Marinate as long as possible. This could be my go to chicken fajita recipe.
So good!!! I ended up cooking the chicken and veggies on separate trays and I cooked the peppers/onions 40-45 min so they’d get some color. I also cut the tenderloins in half length before marinating. Used in fajitas and also used in rice bowls as leftovers for lunch… Will definitely make again!
Works well. Did 2 pounds chicken breast tenders with 3 peppers and 1/3 of a red onion. Double spice, but maybe don’t double spicy spices. Too spicy for me.
Used this fairly easy recipe to help 14 year old granddaughter practice her skills. We have a family of 12 that eat dinner together nightly so we pretty much doubled the recipe and it turned out great!! We have a garden so we preselected some zucchini, chopped and added a bit of that as well. Those taking lunches were arguing over who was getting the most leftovers. We did add some spices and stir fried our shrimp after marinating in hoisin sauce for about an hour and we used a beer citricy soy sauce. this will be made again soon!!!
This made a very tasty fajita filling! It said to marinade the chicken mixture for 2 hours and I did. We added guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese and lettuce on flour tortillas and it was perfect. If not using a spicier salsa, I could see upping the amount of seasoning. #HealthyWinterDinner
This recipe was easy and delicious.
OMG this was the best thing I ever had!!! Very easy to make.
Really good and easy. I, too, doubled all the spices.
This has become one of my go-to recipes because I can prep it all in advance, throwing in the oven while I take other food items out and set the table. clean-up is easy because I put foil on my pans. we are low-carb so I use low-carb tortillas and Mexican seasoned cauliflower rice (costco or sams, can't remember). next day the lefr-ovets are usually used in a salad.
Super easy and great flavor. My mom loved it. Will keep this recipe.
This one's a keeper, for sure. I loved it and my husband loved it. Two thumbs up! I might increase the spices a bit next time, but it's very good exactly as written. I heated some tortillas in the oven, added the chicken, onions, and peppers, and topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream. They were excellent and it's so easy to make. Very little clean-up involved. I served it with Spanish rice and refried beans.
Based on the reviews provided by others, I went ahead and increased the seasonings at the start. Success! The recipe was easy and tasty. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!
This was fantastic!
Made as written with the exception of homemade fajita seasoning from this site. Very tasty with salsa added on the finished tortilla roll. Never made fajitas before but will make again often.
Wonderful recipe! Few changes (I know, I know) I doubled the amount of spices, based on other reviews. Also, I was out of lime, cilantro, and onion powder. it was still heavenly, and very easy to make AND clean up.
Delicious! Everyone in my family loved! I wrapped corn tortillas in foil and put them in the oven to warm the last 10 minutes of cooking. I love one-pan meals!
Definitely add more seasonings. If you have a well seasoned baking sheet, you can skip the foil.
This was really good. I cheated and used frozen pepper strips. Because of personal taste I didn't use the cilantro and lime juice.
My husband said this was the best Mexican dish I have ever made! It was so delicious, and simple! It will certainly be used again and again in my house. Only changes I made, I used Saffron because I didn't have cumin and I added a cup of chicken broth to the marinade and cooked in a skillet on the stove. Amazing!!
Real quick and easy and a great taste
It was honestly the best homemade fajtias Ive had
I followed the recipe with only a couple of changes. I used regular chicken breasts and sliced into small strips. I added about a cup of apple juice to the marinade, doubled the seasonings but didn’t double the oil. I also added some mushrooms. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly, marinated for about an hour, and my husband and loved it! It made a ton though, so maybe next time I’ll cut the recipe in half.
This is a weekly favorite in our house!
