How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

One pan, a few ingredients, and 30 minutes. That’s all you need to make these sheet pan chicken fajitas! Tender chicken strips with bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, and more, all ready to be piled on to tortillas for an easy meal. Easy, baked, healthy, done!

How to Make Sheet Pan Fajitas:

  1. Chop all your veggies and place them in your sheet pan. 
  2. Combine Greek yogurt, cilantro, and fajitas seasoning in a mixing bowl, then toss and coat the chicken strips in the mixture.
  3. 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!
