You all know I <3 Mexican food more than anything in life.

Bring on the margaritas, chips and salsa, and don’t forget the creamy corn dip.

All of those things mentioned, while I do love them so so much, they’re definitely not the healthiest option in the world.

So.

My goal lately, has been to health-ify my beloved Mexican food while still keeping it easy and delish, of course.

Enter: Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas.

Cut up some veggies, whip up a quick marinade, and let ‘em cook. That’s basically all that happens.

How magical is that?!

Here’s the fleshed out explanation of what goes on to make these Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas happen.

Cut up some veggies: slice 1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper and halve and quarter a red onion. Place all of that in a ziplock baggie.

Place chicken breasts into another ziplock baggie.

Now, you’ll whisk together your marinade:

  • Fresh orange juice
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Soy sauce (or GF alternative)
  • Vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Chili powder
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Pour half over the veggie and half over the chicken then marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.

Then dump veggies onto sheet pan and then place chicken on top of that.

Bake until the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked and juicy.

So again, how magical is that?!

SO crazy easy and I mean, holy YUM!

These Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are seriously so delish. I love the slightly crunchy veggies mixed with the ultra juicy and tender chicken breasts and that fresh juice/spice combo is absolutely killer.
