Chicken Fajita Recipe

Y’all, these chicken fajitas are seriously one of my favorite meals and it’s so easy. Oven baking chicken always turns out super juicy and it’s so hands off.

I’ve tried all different ways of cooking chicken, but for an easy weeknight meal nothing beats popping them in an oven for 20 minutes.

Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

While the chicken cooks you have plenty of time to prep the rest of the meal. For me having fresh guacamole is absolutely key to this dish, as are fresh tortillas.

We get tortillas from our local grocery store(shoutout H.E.B.!) that makes them fresh in-store every day. Good tortillas can make or break any recipe and I’d highly encourage you to find fresh ones instead of using Mission tortillas. It’s definitely worth it.

Baked Chicken with Lime

If I’m being honest this recipe is basically a conduit to have chewy tortillas topped with amazing gucamole. Sure the chicken is nice and juicy but the guac is the icing on this taco cake.

After working all day I don’t want to spend hours cooking a meal, I want something fast and easy, and this chicken fajita recipe is the perfect weeknight dinner.

For a really spicy fajita add-on try my pineapple habanero hot sauce.
