Chicken Fajita Sheet Tray

There is no more straightforward and simple way to make dinner than on a sheet tray. Preheat the oven. Prepare your sheet with some oil or parchment paper. Chop, toss and season your veggies. Marinate or season your protein: chicken, beef, fish other. Pour the veggies onto the pan, top with protein, bake and serve with whatever sides you choose.

This Chicken Fajita Sheet Tray is a terrific dinner and is inspired by an Isabelle Smith recipe on Delish, one of my favourite main course sources. It’s particularly easy to make when you’ve rushed home and want something wonderful ASAP. It goes great with Spanish rice and beans: refried or baked it’s up to you! It’s comes together quickly, is truly delicious and doesn’t break the calorie bank either.

INGREDIENTS

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt 
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2″ strips
  • 3 red and yellow bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp. avocado oil
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • FOR TOPPING
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
A Veteran Move is to do all your chopping and seasoning in the morning or the night before so its ready for the pan as soon as you get home.

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 425° and grease a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. 

In a small bowl, whisk together spices.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, bell peppers, onions, avocado oil, and lime juice. Add spice mix and toss until completely coated.
Spread fajita mixture in an even layer onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve topped with avocado and tomatoes. Add grated cheddar cheese, sour cream or Greek yogurt and salsa if you feel so inclined.

You can also serve in corn or flour tortillas with rice and/or beans.
