  • Spread red bell peppers and onion in the baking dish.

  • Coat chicken strips with a few pinches of the fajita seasoning mix. Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir seasoned chicken until browned, about 2 minutes per side.

  • Place chicken in the baking dish with bell peppers and onion; top with remaining fajita seasoning mix and vegetable oil. Stir until chicken and vegetables are evenly coated.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through baking, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes.

  • Spoon chicken mixture into each tortilla and top with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro.

Not a big fan of baked chicken for fajitas but prefer grilled. It was pouring rain though and so baked it was. I gotta say that these turned out really good for being baked. I thought for sure that the onions would stay crunchy, the peppers would get mush, and the chicken would get overcooked but none of that happened. This was a good recipe and one I would definitely make again even if it wasn't raining. Read More

I sliced the chicken in the morning and marinated it in a mixture of 1 tbsp Taco Seasoning I made with no salt and some lime juice. I did not precook the chicken. I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper layered the onions red and green peppers then the chicken on top. I sprinkled everything with Taco Seasoning I. I feel 20 to 25 minutes would be a better baking time as the vegetables were overcooked at 30 minutes. Fast and easy dinner with a little tweaking. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #LetsTacoAboutIt Read More

Great recipe. I used green peppers instead of red ones (which I don't like much), homemade seasoning (https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/232967/fajita-seasoning/) instead of packaged, and a cast-iron skillet and a porcelain pie dish—this recipe is for 12 servings, and needed both—instead of the baking dish I thought I had but didn't. Otherwise I went by the book, and it was delicious. The cooking time is just right. As said, the recipe is for 12 servings, so for a smaller family you might want to halve it or you'll have a lot of leftovers. Read More

I had some fajita chicken strips that I used. I also left out the salsa since we were going to have salsa and chips with them. They were delicious without it anyway. Read More
