Easy Oven Baked Skinny Chicken Fajitas

Easy Oven Baked Skinny Chicken FajitasIt’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. We are currently in the process of moving from Philadelphia to DC for my husband’s Med school. He finally got into Georgetown, so exciting!

With all the packing and looking for apartments I’ve hardly have the time to make a decent meal but this easy baked chicken fajita dish is beyond simple. It’s a one pan dish and basically a mix it and toss in the oven type of dish. Plus, the results are amazing! 
Easy Oven Baked Skinny Chicken FajitasFor years I’ve been making fajitas at home and every time I’ve always aimed for that smokey grilled flavor that authentic fajitas must have. I didn’t expect the authentic flavor with the baked version but boy was I surprised. Turns out roasting the chicken and vegetables in the oven gives them that slightly charred edge and smokey authentic fajita favor.

For the spice mix you can use a store-bought packet or try my homemade version which is so much better!

    is the fajita mix in addition to all the dried seasonings, or are the listed seasonings the fajita mix?

      Layla

      Yes, the spices listed are the spice mix but you can use fajita seasoning INSTEAD if you’d like. Enjoy!

    Tried this yesterday and it was soooo good! The chicken was juicy and had great flavor from the seasoning and veggies.

    I am going to make this tomorrow. Can’t wait. My question is, why is the Fajta Seasoning Mix different than the Fajita seasoning Mix in the One Pan Chicken Fajitas?

      Layla

      I don’t like to stick to exact recipes every time I cook. I like to switch up the spices but they are both very similar!

    Made this tonight and it was easy and very delicious! Didn’t add as much cumin as I’m not very fond of it. Before broiling I put cheese on top. So glad I pinned this 🙂 thank you!

    Jenna

    This looks delicious! Do you know the calories for two fajitas?
