Chicken Fajitas Made Easy!
No need to get any pots or pans on the stove. Instead, toss thinly-sliced onions and peppers with chicken strips and a medley of spices and make everything under the broiler. The broiler is going to be your new best friend if you’re into quick dinners. Thinly sliced chicken can cook under the broiler in as little as 20 minutes without any stirring or mixing required. The chicken will be perfectly cooked through and even lightly crisped up and browned on top.
Your busy weeknight dinner in just 30 minutes!
In this same amount of time the bell peppers and onions will also get a nice char from the broiler while still staying slightly crisp. That’s the secret to fajita style cooking – you want veggies that still have a bit of crunch to them. For a low carb, high protein meal, you can serve these sheet pan Mexican fajitas as is. If you’re looking for an even more authentic Mexican dinner experience, chop up some tomatoes, thinly slice avocados, and serve this sheet pan meal with tortillas.
Think self assembled tacos. Kids will love this, and trust me adults will too. I find these Mexican sheet pan fajitas perfect in a tortilla with avocado, tomato, a squeeze of lime juice, and some cilantro. For those not following a dairy free diet, a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheese would also work.
Most importantly you can have these Mexican sheet pan fajitas on the table in 30 minutes for a simple and fuss-free weeknight dinner!
