Tips and tricks for this recipe

  1. Start off by spreading the vegetables and chicken into an even layer on a large-rimmed sheet pan. You definitely need a pan with at least a 1-inch rim.
  2. Sprinkle with seasoning. If you have a favorite brand of fajita seasoning, you can use that instead.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Also, to give the chicken and vegetables a nice char, you can broil them for the last 2 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle lime zest and lime juice over all before serving. I highly recommend you do not leave this step off. Lime juice and zest really brighten the flavor.
  6. Serve with heated tortillas, lime juice, sour cream, sliced avocado or guacamole, and chopped cilantro.
  7. For a low-carb version, serve with these low-carb tortillas, wrapped in lettuce, or over cauliflower rice.

    Hola Paula! Can I fry the vegetables on a low sim in a little bit of oil instead of baking them in the oven? Btw I loved your idea of having tender chicken together with tortillas and chilli pepper seasoning.

    1. Sprinkle the juice and zest over all the ingredients on the sheet pan. When I made this I added it before cooking. Now I add it after. It’s good either way, but a little fresher tasting adding it after it’s all cooked.

    I have made this twice now and I just have to say that it’s SO good! I use a a whole 3 lb bag of chicken breast fillets and four sweet pepper and one big red onion. I kept the seasonings the same as the recipe. I tossed everything together (unlike the photo on the recipe) and then I sprinkle sea salt and fresh ground pepper over everything. About half way through cooking, I drain some of the juice from the pan as I like the chicken and vegetables a little less moist. This is a KEEPER! Thank you!
