One Pan Chicken Fajitas
These One Pan Chicken Fajitas are a delicious, quick, easy and healthy dish to add to your meal plan. It's fast family food at it's best.
- 500 g boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I've also used thigh meat)
- 2 red capsicum/s
- 1 red onion/s -peeled
- 2 tbsp olive oil -extra virgin
- 2 tsp Mexican chilli powder (my spice blend recipe here)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ tsp ground cumin
Pre-heat your oven to 350°F/180°C (fan-forced).
Prepare fajita seasoning by mixing all of the spices together. Set aside
Cut the chicken, onion and bell peppers into thin strips and place on a sheet pan or baking dish.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle with homemade fajita seasoning.
Toss with tongs or spatula to get everything evenly coated.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes (stir halfway through).
Serve in lettuce wraps with cheese and your favourite toppings!
I've served it here with cheddar, coriander (cilantro) leaves, radish and fresh lime juice. But you can tailor this to suit your families needs and tastes.
I love it with Guacomole or diced avocado too.
Onion and garlic-free
You can omit them all, the other spices add loads of flavour.
Vegetarian and vegan
Replace the chicken with 300g of brown or field mushrooms and reduce the cooking time to 20 minutes. Reserve 1 tsp of spice mix and toss through 1 drained and rinsed can of black beans. Add these to the baking tray 5 minutes before the vegetables are ready to warm them.
