Baked Chicken Fajitas

by Erin

Trade in taco night for fajita night with these easy baked chicken fajitas. Served with your favorite toppings and wrapped in warm flour tortillas.


For this month’s Secret Recipe Club I was assigned to Rebekah’s blog Making Miracles. After browsing her recipe list I found myself quickly adding recipes to my bookmarks for things such as Italian sliders, seared pork tortas, and of course oatmeal peanut butter cookies because you all know how much I cannot ignore a good peanut butter recipe. But ultimately I landed on a recipe for baked fajitas – Mexican Monday anyone!?

Baked Chicken Fajitas 1

Fajitas are one of my favorite Mexican dishes to order and I was excited by how easily it came together, and using only one pan, making it a perfect weeknight meal. Serve it with your favorite toppings all wrapped in a soft, warm flour tortilla and your cannot go wrong. I did increased the amount of chicken and bell pepper slightly but other than that kept the recipe the same. Thanks Rebekah for the great meal!

This looks like the prep method would be less messy than the usual skillet version, too. Great SRC pick.

I had Rebekah’s blog a couple of months ago. She has some great food, and is such a delightful person, I’m sure you enjoyed her blog as much as I did. These chicken fajitas look fabulous, and since I seem to have been on a bit of a Mexican cooking kick lately, it might not be too long before I try them.

I love fajitas, and I especially love that this recipe is baked instead of cooked in a skillet. Maybe a little healthier that way… Awesome pick this month :)

Wow, these photos are picture perfect and your dish looks like it’s straight from an authentic mexican restaurant. Love!! These sound delicious– I always order fajitas but I’ve never made them at home. I definitely need to try!

I don’t blame you on choosing the fajitas. I think they are my absolute favorite! And I love that they are baked, so easy and delicious. What a fun choice!

So glad you got to try this one out and enjoyed it! It’s sure a convenient way to make fajitas – even if it’s not exactly traditional! :) Happy Reveal Day!
