Baked Chicken Fajitas

This is a great idea that I wish I would have thought of first. Instead of stir-frying the ingredients for the fajitas, you just bake it all together! Makes it easy to prepare in advance, and the house doesn't reek of peppers and onions for days afterwards!

You can play around with the seasoning in these - I didn't have fajita seasoning so I just increased the amounts of chili powder and cumin and added some garlic powder. And besides making a little less than the recipe calls for since it was just for the two of us I didn't make any other changes so I will just link you right to the original recipe from Molly Jean at The Rookie Chef:

What a great, easy idea!! We make fajitas for dinner all the time so this looks perfect for us!

Looks like your version turned out equally delicious! So glad you like them :)

Oh I'm craving for some Mexican food and came across your recipe. I'm getting hungry! Love chicken fajitas. I had no idea you could bake them. I usually sautee the chicken in a pan. Maybe it's more flavorful
