Why These Are The Best Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

- Bold & flavorful: I seriously cannot even tell you how good these are. The homemade fajita seasoning and the cilantro lime sauce are where it’s at.
- Cilantro lime sauce: This IS the top reason you need these chicken fajitas in your life. This sauce is out. of. this. world. I’m just a sauce girl. I love sauces and dips on almost everything- especially anything taco-ish and the like.
- Time: They only have to bake/roast for 15-20 minutes in the oven. Yep- less than 20 minutes cooking time, baby!

How to Reheat Baked Chicken Fajitas
The best way to reheat these oven chicken fajitas is in a skillet on the stovetop. This prevents the soggy peppers and dry chicken you get if you reheat the chicken fajitas in the microwave.
What Vegetables Can I Use for Baked Chicken Fajitas
You can add any vegetables you like to these oven fajitas, but bell peppers and onion are standard. You’ll need to adjust the cooking time if you use heartier veggies like potatoes.
How to Serve Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
