This recipe for Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas is all the proof you need that fajitas can be made on a weeknight, using minimal dishes, in 30 minutes or less.

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!).

Once the oven timer goes off, all you have to do is throw these sheet pan chicken fajitas onto the table alongside some warm tortillas, salsa, and sour cream and dinner is ready.

If you have a few extra minutes, throw this Instant Pot Brown Rice in the pressure cooker to serve alongside!

The fajita seasoning itself can be store-bought or homemade, both are equally as tasty. I’ve given you my secret recipe for fajita seasoning made from spice rack-staples, you might be surprised at how easy it is to throw together in only a couple of minutes!

Leftover chicken and veggies from this sheet pan fajita recipe are filling and flavourful additions to all kinds of meals — and I’ve given you plenty of ideas below!

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!).

  • 2teaspoonschili powder
  • 1teaspoonsalt
  • 1teaspoonbrown sugar
  • 1teaspoongarlic powder
  • 1/2teaspooncumin
  • 1/4teaspooncayenne 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:

  • 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 ½ cup of your favourite salsa into store-bought vegetable soup. Top with shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips.

    Sheet pan fajitas are very good. Used chicken tenders. Made your seasoning. Pizza topping sounds good for leftovers.

    I made this recipe and it was fabulous! I doubled the peppers, onions, and added orange peppers and thinly sliced Poblano peppers as we have big appetites in this family! There was actually enough left over to have them again a second night. They reheat beautifully! This recipe is a keeper, and I thank you for sharing it with us.

    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!
