Quick and Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Quick and Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Ever had one of those days? Long day at work. Exhausted. Ready to unwind, only to get home and realize that you have no idea what you’re going to have for dinner? Let’s just say I’ve been there a time or two. I’ve got something that will help you out on those days when you have a seemingly empty fridge, no creativity, and want a healthy dinner on the table quick and painlessly. They are my sheet pan fajitas. Not only are these fajitas quick and easy, but they use very simple ingredients.

I feel like half the battle of living a healthy lifestyle is having meals that are not only healthy but easy to prepare too. These sheet pan fajitas definitely fit the bill. The whole meal is cooked under the broiler in just one pan. I don’t know about you, but I like it when I can get a whole dinner cooked in one pan. I’m a fan of less dishes, so that’s a bonus in my book!

These come together very quickly. They only take about 10 minutes of prep time and 10 minutes under the broiler. I love this dinner on weeknights because it’s just so easy to make. You can use flour or corn tortillas, both work great. I like to serve these fajitas with a simple sauce on top.  It is creamy and has just a hint of lime, that pairs really well with the perfectly seasoned chicken, peppers, and onions. It truly takes these fajitas over the top!

 

Here’s how you make them:
