 These Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas are one of our faves. I’ve made them more times than I can count and they always come out delicious.

Slice some boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sweet peppers, and onion and place in your baking dish. Mix together the marinade ingredients, pour over the veggie & chicken mixture and stir together.

After the fajita mix cooks this is what you’ll end up. Perfectly flavored (with no seasoning packets!), tender chicken and veggies. Load up corn or flour tortillas with the fajita meat and top with some pico de gallo, shredded cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. Seriously, yummy!

For the guacamole I mash 2 avocados, squeeze half a lime, and add a pinch of kosher salt. Super simple, not spicy, delicious, creamy, and the kids will eat it 🙂

For the pico de gallo I seed 4 roma tomatoes and dice up, add 1-2 tablespoons diced red onion, some chopped cilantro, squeeze half a lime, and a pinch of kosher salt.

Both these are simple, pair well with the chicken fajitas, and taste so fresh.

Thanks friends for stopping by, enjoy!
