These sheet pan chicken fajitas are easy and taste really good. I mean, they aren’t totally authentic and don’t taste quite like chicken fajitas at a restaurant, but I love how I can have them marinating or cooking in the oven and I can do anything I want while I wait. I mean, while your dinner cooks, you can clean your house, help your children with homework, pick a child up from whatever after-school class they are in and have a few minutes left over to cook some tortillas.
Tips and tricks for this sheet pan chicken fajitas recipe:
- I make my own tortillas from scratch, so they are cheap, healthy and good. If you want to do that, I like this recipe – Clean Eating tortillas.
- Using store-bought tortillas is just fine too. Our family loves the uncooked ones from Costco. Just takes a few minutes to cook them and they are almost as good as mine (wink).
- If you don’t have essential oils, sub the same spices instead.
- Cilantro and are so strong that I recommend simply dipping a toothpick in the bottle and swirling it around in the to infuse it with flavor…even 1 drop can be too much and this way you can control the strength a bit easier.
- Don’t use any essential oils that aren’t food-grade essential oils. You could get very sick if you ingest essential oils that aren’t good quality or have synthetic ingredients mixed in. That’s why I only use doTERRA essential oils.
- I also love to make these with the mini sweet pepper trios that come in bags at Costco or the grocery store.
- You don’t HAVE to marinate the chicken. It tastes better, but even if you just have 15 minutes for them to marinade, it’s a whole lot better than nothing. By the way, the marinade on these makes them easy to prep the chicken the night before and cut the veggies, then all you need to do the next day is throw everything in the oven. Easy peasy. Of course, that takes a bit of planning ahead, so I often forget to do that myself.
