Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas

Baking chicken fajitas in the oven is effortless, really it is. Just toss all the ingredients in the baking dish and bake. The oven does the work and roasting the meat and vegetables gives them a slightly charred edge and a sweetness that is just so good.

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 1 large bell pepper seeded and sliced (I use half a green and half a red)
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • Toppings such as cheese sour cream, and guacamole – if desired


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place chicken strips in a greased 13×9 baking dish.
  • In a small bowl combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, coriander, and salt
  • Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat.
  • Next add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the dish and stir to combine.
  • Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
