Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

I love easy dinner recipes that are packed with flavor, and this is definitely one of them! Not only are these fajitas downright delicious, there is also almost zero prep work involved, which makes them so easy and quick to make. No premixed seasoning packets, just a few basic spices and a whole lot of flavor! Another thing I really love about this dish is that there’s barely any cleanup afterwards. You simply toss everything in a bowl, spread it out on a sheet pan, throw it into the oven and you’re ready to eat twenty minutes later!

How you serve your fajitas is completely up to you. If you are Paleo or gluten-free, you could enjoy them in lettuce cups or on Siete Foods Tortillas. I topped mine with sweet salsa and queso fresco, while Andres devoured his with a little sour cream.  Try this tasty fajita recipe, and I bet you won’t have a single piece leftover.
