These chicken fajitas are ridiculously easy to prepare and bake in the oven. Seriously, I made these fajitas, ate them, and cleaned up the mess in my kitchen before work this afternoon, and I am NOT motivated before work! I’ve watched the recipe float around Facebook for awhile, and my mom has made these several times and raves about them. When I decided I wanted to make them, I couldn’t find the recipe so I took to pinterest. I did find it there where someone uploaded a screencap from Facebook. I have no idea where the original recipe came from, so if you recognize it, please let me know so that I can properly credit the source!
As you can see, I served these up with a couple of tortillas and some spanish rice. I used the one from Lipton’s sides collections, but feel free to make your own if you are motivated! I also left out the onions entirely because I am not a fan. Not pictured, the bit of sour cream that I added. These were SO good guys! I think my favorite way to serve these up in the future will be with some lettuce and sour cream in a tortilla. Simple and delicious!
I also submitted this post to an online potluck, so click on over there to see a bunch of other awesome recipe ideas!
Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 (15oz.) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (such as Rotel)
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips
Place chicken strips in a greased 13×9 baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, and season salt. Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat. Add the tomatoes, peppers and onions to the dish and stir to combine.
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are done.
