Sheet pan chicken fajitas are an easy and healthy dinner recipe that the whole family will love. All of the ingredients are baked on the same pan for easy baking and easy clean up!
The theme of this recipe is all about easy! I work full time, run this blog and try to keep up with our new pup and time is of the essence. When I do have spare time, I want to be hanging out with friends and watching a Netflix episode or two.
Which is why I look for any and every way to save time when I can. Going to the grocery store is definitely one of those times so when I was let in on the little secret of shipping now available through Kroger a few weeks ago I knew it was going to be a game changer. Especially since shipping is free on your first order if you spend more than $35!
Zach and I always do all of our shopping at Kroger (any other Simple Truth fans out there?!) and I actually texted him the good news I was so excited. I immediately asked him what he wanted for dinner and we’re huge fans of all things Mexican food so sheet pan chicken fajitas it was!
I don’t know about you but when I’m at the grocery store, especially when I’m trying a new recipe, I don’t like searching the aisles for an ingredient.
With shipping now available through Kroger.com, all I did was search for the ingredient and hit add to cart. Seriously if this would have been a thing two years ago I would have so much more time!
I obviously got all the non perishable fixings for chicken fajitas like tortillas, all of the spices and the brown rice, then I got a few other necessities too (coffee, brown rice) and I got to cooking over the weekend for our sheet pan chicken fajitas.

How to make sheet pan chicken fajitas
To make sheet pan chicken fajitas, start by slicing all of your onions and peppers thinly into long strips. I bought yellow, red and orange peppers but you can use any color and mix you want! Peel and slice a medium yellow onion too then place it on a large baking sheet.
Next, slice the chicken into strips and place them evenly on the pan. Top with the olive oil and spices and give it a toss to coat! Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, stirring half way through.
Turn the broiler on at the very end for a minute to get everything nice and toasty then right before they’re done, throw your tortillas in to warm up! Serve with avocado, cilantro, cheese or whatever else you want!
