Chili lime chicken sheet pan fajitas, loaded with marinated chicken, peppers and onions, this is sure to be a family favorite!
I am always trying to find quick and delicious dinners to make during the week for our busy family. Lately, I have been obsessed with sheet pan dinners. Throw some yummy ingredients on a cookie sheet, put in the oven and then voila, dinner is served.
These chili lime chicken fajitas have become one of our favorite sheet pan meals. My kids love anything they can roll up in a tortilla. 🙂 The chicken is marinated or tossed in spices and lime juice and then placed on a pan with peppers and onions.
In a small bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients. Let chicken marinade for up to 8 hours or you can put chicken in marinade and then directly on prepared baking sheet (affiliate link)
Place cut up peppers and onions around the chicken and drizzle them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put baking sheet in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes and then fajita mixture is ready to be served.
We love serving these chili lime chicken fajitas in warm flour tortillas with guacamole, sour cream and salsa. A great side dish to this meal is my One Pot Spanish Rice. If you would like another quick chicken fajita marinade, be sure to check out this Margarita Chicken.
