Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

Yum! Yes, another Pinterest find! And it makes it even better that it’s a “throw it in the oven meal”. That means you can do other things while it’s cooking! Go ahead and clean the kitchen so you don’t have to do it afterwards. =] 

This meal is really easy and relatively inexpensive! You might already have 95% of what you need already in your kitchen!

You will need:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tsp. chili powder (or less if you don’t like spicy things)
2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried Oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 medium onion, sliced
1 large bell pepper, seeded and sliced
Flour tortillas
Toppings of your choice – I ALWAYS do sour cream and shredded cheese, but you could also do avocado.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and then place your chicken strips in a greased 13×9 baking dish.

(Pretend this is a 13×9. Mine was in the dishwasher.)

In a small bowl, combine oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried Oregano, and salt.

Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and then stir to coat.

Next, add the can of tomatoes (undrained), peppers, and onions. Stir to combine.

Bake (uncovered) for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

You could make some Mexican rice to go along with this meal as well. I decided at the last minute that I wanted to do that, so I threw some water and rice into a pot. Thank you Knorr for instant cooking! =]

Serve on tortillas with desired toppings.

(I put my Mexican rice inside one of my fajitas!)

Let me know if you try this and how you like it! =]
