Fajitas – aren’t they delicious? Can you already smell the aroma of a delicious plate of fajitas. Imagine you go to a restaurant and order a plate of steaming hot fajitas on a warm tortilla with the works. Doesn’t that sound so good? What if you could make that fantasy happen in the comfort of your own home? Would you?

If your answer to that previous question is yes, then you are in the right place! This is a recipe for chicken fajitas, but instead of slaving over the stove, you simply have to pop them in the oven. This is a really easy recipe that most people should be able to follow and use frequently.

All you need for this recipe is 1 lb chicken thighs, taco seasoning, 3 bell peppers, and 1 onion.

To start, you need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Chop your chicken, bell peppers, and onions into strips. Place the cut chicken, bell peppers, and onions onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle the taco seasoning on top of the mixture. Make sure they are lightly covered in the taco seasoning. So this means that you need to move the mixture around so that the bottom is covered with the taco seasoning. Spread the chicken, bell peppers, and onions across the baking sheet so that the oven cooks it evenly.

Once your oven has reached 350 degrees, place the baking sheet into your oven and let it bake! Set your timer for 30 minutes. You need to rotate the chicken, bell peppers, and onions so that the bottom is now the top. Once you have flipped the mixture over, place back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes.

Doesn’t that look delicious? (It is, by the way!) So from here all you have to do is put the chicken, bell peppers, and onions on a warm tortilla with your toppings and enjoy! I used picante sauce with my fajitas and that was it. I also made homemade Spanish rice on the side.

I promise you, this is such an easy recipe that only takes about 5 minutes of prep time and one hour of baking. It is so much easier than standing over your stove and grilling the chicken, bell peppers, and onions. You can just place it in your oven and go about your business for an hour and then you are done! To make this better, use whole wheat tortillas. ( I was out of the whole wheat tortillas and only had regular tortillas!)
