Oven Chicken Fajitas

Notes: Super Easy. I also make Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas, which come out with a shredded texture. These are not shredded. Delicious flavor!

Servings: 4-6 | Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 large bell pepper, seeded and sliced (I use half a yellow and half a red)
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • Toppings such as cheese, sour cream, and guacamole

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken strips in a greased 13×9 baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, and salt.
  3. Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat.
  4. Add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the casserole dish and stir to combine.
  5. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve on tortillas with whatever toppings you like.
