Oven Fajitas….a “One Dish Dinner”

Featured imageDo you love fajitas as much as I do?  I USED TO cook my fajitas in a pan on top of the stove and they were great but I had to season the chicken, cook it, keep it warm while I cooked the peppers and then add it all back into the pan to reheat. Then I found this Oven Fajitas recipe and I was so happy.  It is super easy, I can put this dish together quickly, throw it in the oven for 40 minutes and supper is served! Tons of chicken and 3 varieties of peppers make this a filling meal by itself or serve with a side green salad.

Leftover are even better reheated the next day for lunch or use your leftovers to make my Healthy Burrito Bowl. (click link to see a great second day meal.)

Wrap your tortillas in aluminum foil and warm in the oven for a couple of minutes.

Place a small scoop of the chicken vegetable mixture in center of tortilla and add toppings of choice.  I like mine with a big dollop of sour cream and some salsa.  Roll up and enjoy!
