I have used many of your recipes and now it is my turn. This is a quick and easy one dish meal that we love.

Baked Chicken Fajitas

1 pound chicken breasts, cut into thin strips

1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained

1 medium onion, cut into thin strips

1 medium green pepper, cut into thin strips

1 medium red pepper, cut into thin strips

2 Tablespoons canola oil

2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons cumin

¼ teaspoon salt

Flour tortillas, warmed

In a 9 x 13 baking dish coated with cooking spray, combine the chicken , tomatoes, onion and peppers.
Combine the oil, chili powder, cumin and salt. Drizzle over chicken mixture, toss to coat.
Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 – 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Serve with tortillas. Serves about 6

This is what it looks like before the oven...........This is what it looks like after.

I rarely follow a recipe exactly so I changed this up a little. I used tomatoes and a jalapeno pepper from my garden to replace the canned tomatoes. I also I didn't have a ripe red pepper so used green ones, also from my garden. I like to add garlic to everything to that was added in too. We serve these with some sour cream and grated cheese (everything is better with cheese, right?) chips and salsa Enjoy!


  1. This is the yummiest recipe ever! Thanks for posting it. It will cut back on the times I have to call you to get it again because I never write it down on a recipe card and put it away.

  2. Yum!!! I love fajitas and this recipe looks so much more easy and healthy than what I've made in the past. I can't wait to try them. Thanks for posting!

  3. That does look yummy! I will give it a try.

  4. I make something similar to this but sautee it all in a frying pan. My friend Carminda showed me how to make this and you serve it over tortillas. She did it over fresh home made torillas. Only Difference would be to thicken with cornstarch.
