When I made the sheet pan chicken fajitas previously, I piled on the cheese. There is no need for all that. This chicken dinner has plenty of flavor on its own. (If I’m foregoing the cheese and not missing it…you know it’s true!). I sprinkled a bit of Queso Fresco, but you can leave it off all-together to make this even healthier. I swear you won’t miss it.

My other trick to making a skinny fajitas dinner is subbing Greek Yogurt in place of sour cream. Now…let’s be clear…I’m a HUGE fan of sour cream. But you won’t taste the difference. We do this on so many Mexican meals and it’s a new favorite way to skim calories.

Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 3/4 cup diced roma tomatoes (or 1/2 can drained diced tomatoes)
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 large bell peppers, you can use green, red, or yellow or all 3!
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet Fajita seasoning
  • 4 medium tortillas (either whole wheat or flour)
  • 1 large lime, cut in slices (for garnish)
  • Queso Fresco, cilantro, and greek yogurt for garnish

Instructions

  1. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Mix together the tomatoes, onion, and peppers and place in the baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, fajita seasoning, and chopped cilantro. Toss in the chicken and stir until fully coated.
  4. Place the coated chicken into the baking dish with the vegetables. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked fully and vegetables are fork tender.
  5. Tip: with about 8 minutes left, wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven to warm them. Very tasty!

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.
