Oven Baked Fajitas

Here's a pretty ballin' recipe I found on Pinterest. I made it for the first time a few months ago and to be honest, I kind of forgot about it (which is surprising because it's super delicious. I thought of it again the other day and decided to make it again tonight. This recipe is pretty large. I'd say it would make enough for 4 adults. My favorite thing about this is that it's ridiculously easy to make. The first time I made it I used precut onions and peppers. You could even get the fajita chicken pieces that are already cut into neat little pieces. Try it, you'll like it.

Ingredients:

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (Rotel)
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 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 salt.
Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat.
Next add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the dish and stir to combine.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

  1. Someone linked to your site through pinterest and I am so glad I followed! This looks so delicious, I hate doing fajitas in a pan because it never all fits and it just gets so messy! This is genius! Thanks for sharing the idea!

    1. definitely drain it! I made the mistake of not draining it and having to halfway through the cooking process to avoid fajita soup!

  4. This was so good, thank you!!!! And to Christina Neuman, I don't think you drain the Rotel. At least I didn't and the liquid drains away.

  9. I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!!! I have been known to premix the spices in a ziplock baggie and take it on vacations to wow family and friends with a fantastic meal!!! I like to mix all ingredients in a large ziplock in the morning and allow it to marinate all day. then dump in a pan and bake!
