From the very first time I made this recipe, I knew it was going to be a regular in our dinner rotation. Not only are these sheet pan fajitas incredibly easy to make, but the flavor is spot on. This recipe starts with my homemade Fajita Seasoning, which is a simple mix of spices that brings incredible flavor to the chicken and veggies.

The best part about this recipe is that once you’ve got the seasoned chicken and veggies on the pan, your oven does the rest! As the fajitas bake, you can prep other components of the meal or just sit down and relax for a few minutes.

Ingredients for sheet pan fajitas recipe.


  • Fajita Seasoning: This recipe uses my homemade fajita seasoning, a perfect blend of spices: chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground cumin, dried oregano, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper. The sugar brings a touch of sweetness that pairs so well with the spice, but feel free to omit it if you prefer.
  • Chicken Breast: Boneless skinless chicken breast cooks up tender and juicy.
  • Bell Peppers: I like to use a mix of colors for variety.
  • Yellow Onion: The flavor mellows and sweetens as it bakes.
  • Olive Oil: You’ll toss it with the chicken and veggies for flavor and to help the seasonings stick.
  • Lime Juice: Brightens up the flavors.
  • Fresh Cilantro: For a pop of fresh flavor.

How to Serve Fajitas

Fajitas are typically served wrapped in warm flour or corn tortillas. They are especially good served with these homemade tortillas. Then add your toppings: guacamole or avocado, sour cream, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, cotija cheese, whatever you like! Keep it simple, the filling is so flavorful that you don’t need much in the way of toppings.

These sheet pan fajitas are also wonderful served in a bowl with chopped lettuce and/or rice. I also like to add black beans or pinto beans and guacamole.

Recipe Tips

  • Slicing the chicken against the grain when you cut it into strips makes it more tender when serving.
  • Bake sheet pan fajitas at a high temperature, in this case 425° F. This browns the edges of the chicken while locking in the juices, and caramelizes the peppers and onions for the best flavor.
  • You can save time by making the fajita seasoning ahead of time. It can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 6 months.

Perfect for Meal Prep

This recipe is make ahead friendly and great for meal prep! Once you’ve baked the chicken and veggies, you can divide them up into meal prep containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Add in some cooked rice to make it a complete meal. When you’re ready to eat, heat to steaming hot in the microwave and enjoy!
