Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breast cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil

  • For serving: tortillas cheddar cheese, sour cream, limes, cilantro, avocado

Instructions

  • Place chicken strips in a shallow dish.
  • In a small bowl whisk together lime juice, avocado oil, garlic, and Southwestern seasoning. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the marinade.
  • Pour remaining marinade over chicken and marinate 30 minutes to up to 2 hours.

  • Carefully remove sheet pan and arrange chicken, onions and peppers, on the sheet pan.
  • Bake 25 - 30 minutes, brushing halfway through with reserved marinade.

Notes

Tips

  • If You don’t have Southwestern Seasoning, use 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon each cumin, garlic powder, salt, and paprika. Fajita season or taco seasoning also work.
  • I use organic flour tortillas for the family, and gluten free organic corn tortillas for myself.

Variations for Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas:

  • Cut a zucchini and yellow squash into matchsticks and toss with a tablespoon of olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt.  Add to the Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas in the last five minutes of cooking.
  • For a little more heat, add in 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper to the marinade.
  • Serve with Avocado Cream or Bacon Guacamole.
  • Instead of serving with cheddar cheese, serve with crumbled quasi fresco or grated Monterey Jack Cheese
