BAKED SHEET PAN CHICKEN FAJITAS are our favorite healthy dinner! Lighter in calories and fat, but packed with flavor! An easy fajitas recipe that everyone will love.
For me, it doesn’t get better than Skinny Baked Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas! They have everything I love about great dinner recipes; they’re SUPER EASY to make, full of flavor, and family friendly. They are the perfect meal for two; we have made this chicken fajitas recipe over and over. I love them for an easy lunch or for a low key dinner…I just cannot get enough! A couple simple changes make these baked chicken fajitas a healthy Mexican recipe, and you won’t even miss the calories!
This is the type of recipe that takes ZERO prep. No cooking the chicken beforehand. I guess technically you need to chop the veggies…but that is IT. Throw it all in a pan and bake for 25 minutes and you’re set.
You’ll have fresh, flavorful sheet pan chicken fajitas that are delicious! A skinny, and simple dinner that also makes great leftovers. Win win!
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.
