Packed with flavor and cooked all on one pan, this recipe is perfect for busy weeknights or lazy weekends when you don't feel like cooking, but also don’t want to spend money eating out.
The chicken’s seasoning mix, which includes sea salt, peppercorn, chili powder, cumin, oregano, onion powder and garlic powder, creates a perfect combination of smoky, savory and spicy flavors that will make your taste buds dance in delight.
To prepare the dish, take the chicken breasts and slice them into strips and coat them with the spice mixture. Put those on one half of the sheet pan. The other half of the pan is reserved for a colorful array of sliced bell peppers, onions and jalapenos. Everything is then roasted in the oven until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F and the vegetables are tender and caramelized.
While the chicken and vegetables are cooking, warm up some flour tortillas in foil in the oven for the perfect base for your fajitas. Once everything is cooked and ready to go, top the chicken and veggies with freshly chopped cilantro and serve alongside lime wedges and chopped avocado for a zesty finish.
