The Way to a Man's Heart- Oven Baked Fajitas #goodeats #recipes

 Oven Baked Fajitas

This is actually a recipe that I got off Facebook- and usually, under normal circumstances, those kinds of recipes are usually an epic fail for me. Not this one. This one is awesomesauce, even if the kids aren't fond of it. I did have to make some cooking time adjustments for it, but now that I have it down it's good to go.

Oven Baked Fajitas

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 TBSP vegetable oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chiles (Rotel- I have to use 2- 10 oz cans because I don't think they make a 15 oz can of it- I use one can original, one can hot for a very spicy fajita)
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips
(I have been known to use yellow and orange ones as well and quite often the entire pepper sliced up rather than just 1/2)


  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Spray a 13X9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place raw chicken strips in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano and salt and stir until well blended.
  4. Pour over chicken and stir until chicken is well coated
  5. Next, mix in the Rotel, peppers and onion to the bowl, stir until well mixed and then transfer to greased baking dish.
  6. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes, remove from oven and stir (chicken will not be done)
  7. Return to oven and bake another 25 minutes or longer- Until chicken is cooked all the way through and the veggies are tender.
 Serve in warmed fajita shells with your favorite Mexican extras (refried beans, sour cream, rice)
