Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are a snap to make and loaded with fresh veggies and flavor! Colorful bell peppers, red onions and chicken tenders simply tossed together with olive oil and spices. Squeeze fresh lime juice over them after cooking, sprinkle with fresh cilantro, wrap them in a warm tortilla and that’s it! I like soft flour tortillas for my fajitas but corn would be great too, and a little lighter.
Sheet Pan Fajitas
A few weeks ago, I posted my Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas recipe and it is one of our favorite recipes now. I sometimes switch it up with chicken and wanted to share that variation here too! I’m really loving sheet pan dinners right now. They are so easy to make but the best part is how easy they are to clean up! Since sheet pan dinners are often just a protein and veggies, they tend to be healthier too.
How to Make Sheet Pan Fajitas
- Start by slicing red onions and seeded bell peppers into 1/4 inch slices. Toss onions, bell peppers and chicken tenders with olive oil and spices. I like to do this in a large bowl, but if I don’t feel like using a bowl, I’ll just add everything to the sheet pan and give it a toss. I like to use a dark colored sheet pan for this recipe. The dark color heats up quicker than a light colored sheet pan and helps caramelize the onions and bell peppers.
- For easier clean up, I spray the baking sheet with non stick cooking spray.
- To make things quicker, I use chicken tenders in the recipe which are just chicken breast that have already been sliced into strips. If you have whole chicken breast, just cut them into bite sized strips.
- Roast the chicken and veggies at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, until chicken reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer. For extra flavor, turn on the broiler and let the veggies pick up a little extra color. Just run the broiler for 1-2 minutes, checking frequently so they don’t start to burn.
What to Serve with Chicken Fajitas
- Black Bean and Corn Salad
- Mexican Rice
- Slow Cooker Refried Beans
- Frozen Margaritas
- Homemade Salsa

I made your fajitas last week…such a wonderful recipe! I’ve shared it with all 3 of my adult children! Thank you, Melissa!
I love your recipes, they always turn out delicious and easy. One problem I have is that there isn’t a ‘print’ function that prints only the recipe. I don’t need all the pictures and text, just the recipe. This tends to make me keep looking because I hate to write them down. I have no idea how difficult a print recipe only button would be, but there are lots of other sites that do have that feature. I will keep looking at your recipes and use the ones that are short enough to remember.
Thanks for the feedback, Becca! I do have a print option on each recipe at the top right hand corner of the recipe box. I didn’t realized the desktop version was also printing the picture. The mobile version doesn’t have the image, so maybe that would work for you if you are able to print from your phone or tablet. I will work on a better print option. Thank you!
A-ma-zing!! So easy and quick! While the pans were cooking (doubled the recipe and made 2 pans full) I was able to make pico de gallo and guacamole so as soon as they were done we were able to enjoy! I will be making this again. Can’t wait to try it with shrimp! Thanks!
The one pan chicken fajita recipe looks delicious and super easy! It’s going on my meal plan this week!
These chicken Fajitas were absolutely delicious and so easy to make. We will definitely be making them again. Our college daughter made them and she is looking forward to making them at school:) Thank you so much for the recipe! I love the pictures:)
Easy and tasty! Much simpler than my usual, fav. recipe, which involves marinating and grilling. This is a perfect recipe for when I need a make-ahead, easy, party dish! Thanks, Melissa!
Made this last night for dinner and served it over salad. It was so yummy! Quick and easy too! Looking forward to trying more of your recipes 🙂
How many people would you say this serves? I would love to make this for extended family so would need to know how much more to make.
Just tried your recipe today. Very tasty. Thanks for giving me easy quick dinner suggestions.
How many people does a sheet pan serve. I’m having a party!
I made this recipe through the week and it was so easy and delicious! I have been raving about it to girlfriends and have passed your recipe onto them. Love your recipes!!!
Just saw this recipe today on my Pinterest feed. Where has it been???? Had to try it tonight. It was fabulous! Thanks for sharing!!
We started out making the shrimp fajitas and they were delicious and we knew chicken would be just as good. My hubby and I love this and make it almost weekly now. Super easy and healthy!
I love how you add the tortillas to the pan so there is no additional need to dirty anything else! So smart and so good!!
OH my gosh these were amazing! Thank you so much!
What a delicious recipe! I know what I will be having for dinner tomorrow! Yum!
Fajitas are the best meal to make and this does not disappoint! I love one sheet to make the clean up easier too!
These are so delicious, so easy to make, and barely any clean up. SCORE!
Can I just tell you how much I love these sheet pan/one pot meals?! I absolutely needed these in my life, love them! I Made this for my family and they all gobbled this up. Just the right amount of spice without the heat. My husband was able to add his own hot sauce to kick it up just for him. What I loved the most about this meal is that I can eat the leftovers a day or two later and they are good warmed or cold. I Try to low carb during the week and these are perfect with lettuce wraps. Thanks for the great ideas!
hi there! these look delish but i already have lots of chicken in my menu this week- think these could be made with beef? what type would you suggest? thank you!!
This recipe for steak fajitas would be great!
My family loved it. It was a quick meal.
I love making fajitas but it is time consuming the way I was doig it. This looks amazing! Trying it tonight!
I saw your shrimp fajita reciepe too. I was planning on adding shrimp to this at the halfway point when i stir/mix it up. Do you think that would work?
Yes! I have a steak and shrimp fajita recipe that uses the same idea! The shrimp only take about 5 minutes, so I would add them at the last 5 minutes.
Quick, easy and delicious! A hit with adults and kids alike. Thanks for the yummy recipe. 🙂
This has become one of my go to recipes. Delicious and easy enough to make with my 3-month-old strapped to me in the carrier 🙂 I leave out the onion since my husband doesn’t like it, and I use a little more chicken than the recipe calls for (3 large chicken breasts, which I think is usually more like 2 and 1/4 lbs…basically one chicken breast per bell pepper). I cut the chicken breasts into strips and it usually takes less than 15 minutes to cook at 425 degrees.
Loved making this. Soon as the kids walked threw the door there first words was “OMG that smells amazing “ had all empty plates at the end
Turned out beautifully. My husband said best chicken fajitas he’s ever had. No lie.
This was great! Awesome flavor!! We did add extra seasoning becauseI love cumin. I love that there isn’t the extra liquid that you usually end up with when making on top of the stove! Thanks for the recipe!!
This was amazing! I followed the recipe exactly. My whole family loved it. We are definitely adding this to our regulars. It was fast, easy and absolutely delicious!!!!
Incredible recipe!!! I cut it down for me and my boyfriend and it was a perfect dinner for two!! We loved the flavors. We did shred the chicken with forks and it was incredible!!!
I have made both the chicken and shrimp fajitas recipes today and love how easy and simple they were! They turned out perfectly!
Made these for dinner last night. They were a huge hit. Super easy and delicious!
I have made this twice now and it’s absolutely amazing
Simple, easy and delicious
I shared this with my best friend who loves fajitas
Thank you for best fajita recipe ever
