Oven Chicken Fajitas

February 11, 2016
Chicken strips, tomatoes, green chiles, and peppers baked with seasonings. The BEST chicken fajitas you can make at home!


Please tell me I'm not the only one going stir crazy over here?! I'm very thankful for this little house God has blessed us with. But this winter, now with 5 of us, stuck in the house ALL DAY LONG because it's so cold... I feel claustrophobic! Believe me, the boys have plenty to do here in the house. We have approximately one million Thomas Trackmaster tracks, double that number in Legos. Plus Play-Doh, Hot Wheels, Lincoln Logs, books, books, and more books. And there's their tablets with ABC Mouse, YouTube praise songs playlist (Silas had me add any Owl City music video I could find to that list as well), Cut the Rope, 40 different Angry Birds Games, plus Minecraft and Terraria on the computer.

You'd think they'd be occupied enough to not get themselves into trouble. HA!

They're little boys and they need chances to run around and blow off steam. I made a very wise investment in good quality snow pants, snow boots, and gloves so I can kick them out the back door when they're particularly itchy. I wish the cold didn't bother me or else I'd be out there with them!

Oh man, this dinner makes me think of spring. I think it's the bright colors! If you have some pepper and onion haters in your life like I do, this is a great dinner because you can easily avoid the large strips when making their particular fajitas, but the chicken retains the amazing flavor of those vegetables anyway. Plus, you guys know how much I love recreating meals at home - this one, I would say, is way better than ordering tacos or fajitas through the drive thru - trust me!

Oven Chicken Fajitas

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced into rings
  • 10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • Optional toppings: avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese
Cooking Directions
  1. Place chicken, pepper strips, and onions into the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Add diced tomatoes over vegetables.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and taco seasoning. Spread/drizzle over everything in dish.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring half way through. Allow to cool slightly before serving on tortillas with desired toppings.

Here's a tip when cutting the chicken into strips: use a sharp non-serrated knife! I learned this a few years ago and it really cuts raw chicken much easier.
