Baked Chicken Fajitas

Main Dishes



2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips
1 each red, yellow and green bell peppers, cored and sliced into strips
1 med. yellow onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 Tbsp. olive or canola oil
Optional toppings: fresh cilantro, reduced-fat sour cream, salsa, avocado, fresh lime juice


Preheat oven to 400 F. Coat a large sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, whisk together chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper. Set aside. Spread chicken, bell peppers, onion and garlic evenly over the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle seasoning mixture on top. Toss to coat. Spread into a single layer. Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

Note: Serve with warm whole wheat or corn tortillas, over a salad or as a topping for baked potatoes. Black beans or slow-cooker refried beans are the perfect side dish.
