How to Make Sheet Pan Fajitas:

- Chop all your veggies and place them in your sheet pan.
- Combine Greek yogurt, cilantro, and fajitas seasoning in a mixing bowl, then toss and coat the chicken strips in the mixture.
- Place the chicken in the sheet pan along with the vegetables, and bake for 20-25 minutes (uncovered) at 400°F.
So simple and now they’re all ready to eat! I recommend warming up your tortillas, so just wrap a stack of them in foil and place them in the oven about 8 minutes before the rest of the meal is done. Now enjoy those baked fajitas and make sure you save any leftovers. No wasting food allowed here!
Healthy Chicken Fajitas
When I made these sheet pan chicken fajitas in the past, I piled on the cheese. Can you blame me? I love cheese. I’m making healthy chicken fajitas this time though. And they’re still just as tasty!
These baked chicken fajitas have plenty of flavor without piles of cheese. And if I’m foregoing the cheese and not missing it, then you know it’s true! I sprinkled a bit of Queso Fresco, but you can leave it off all-together to really cut out those calories. I swear you won’t miss it.
My other trick to making a skinny sheet pan fajitas dinner is replacing the sour cream with Greek Yogurt. Now let’s be clear…I’m a huge fan of sour cream. But trust me when I say that you won’t taste the difference. We do this on so many Mexican meals and it’s a new favorite way to skim calories.
Healthy AND delicious dinner for two? Yes please!

Do you have a written recipe for these? I’m wondering how much Greek yogurt you used, whether you squeezed lime juice on / how much, greased pan, etc. Thanks!
I would really like the original baked fajitas recipe and can’t find it. Also have you adapted it to the instant pot yet?
Hi! I no longer have the original recipe because it included items that are no longer for sale. This is an updated version with up to date info. I haven’t made it in an instant pot yet but love that idea!
This recipe is SO good ! TFS !
YAY! So glad you loved it!
It would be great if you could provide nutritional information about your recipes. Calories, fat, sugars, sodium etc.
This looks so tasty and I know it has “skinny” in the title so I want to make it. Is nutritional information available for this recipe? That would really help me out. Thanks!
I made these the other day and they were SO yummy. They were very easy as well (and I’m the queen of hating to cook). I’m wondering if you might have any suggestions on freezing ahead of time to make these even easier to make? I was thinking maybe just freezing the cut up chicken, peppers and onions all together, thawing out in fridge the night before and then the next day, tossing chicken in the yogurt/cilantro mix before tossing on baking sheet and cooking.
Hi Becky, these skinny chicken fajitas look absolutely stunning ! Craving for some now
What brand of Fajita Seasoning do you like. Some are too salty. This dish looks amazing. Want to try!
Thanks Carol! I have always used Old El Paso. Hope you love the recipe!!
How funny…I have something along these lines in the oven right NOW! I saw veggies that needed using up, and some chicken thighs, and I went to town! And I am laughing because your OLD CRUMMY PIX look like my current pix. It’s a process, isn’t it?
Your pictures are beautiful!! Yes it’s definitely a process. It’s crazy looking back how much we learn over time. Thanks for stopping by Dorothy!
Some recipes are just worthy of revisiting over and over again. I can see why this is one of them. Don’t you just love seeing how far your photographs have progressed? I know I do.
It’s so fun to look back. Isn’t it crazy how our tastes in photos change!!
You’re absolutely right, this was so good even without the cheese. In place of Fajita seasoning I used cumin and chili powder as well as green chilies mixed with oil. Superb. Thanks for sharing.
Love your substitutions!! Makes it even healthier. Thanks so much Rachel!
