I’ve been trying to come up with a few more low carb recipes I can easily and quickly put together for a healthy dinner. After I put together this vegetarian stuffed peppers recipe for dinner a few weeks back, I wanted to keep trying out a few more Mexican recipes and decided to try to make chicken fajitas!

This recipe for chicken fajitas are perfectly baked in the oven and tastes amazing. All you need are boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and your choice of veggies (I used the classic bell peppers and onions combination).

How To Make Chicken Fajita Marinade

To make this chicken fajita recipe even more fantastic, I put together this quick and simple marinade to really give the chicken and veggies a ton of great flavor.

For this marinade, you will need:

Whisk together all three of the ingredients mentioned above into a cup.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken breasts along with the chopped bell peppers and onion slices. Pour the olive oil marinade over the chicken and veggies and toss everything together until it’s all combined.

If you want (or have the time), let the fajitas marinate on the counter for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator overnight. But, if you don’t have the time or want to cook right away, go ahead and skip the marinating!

How To Make Chicken Fajitas In The Oven

After the chicken has been marinated, spread the chicken fajitas and vegetables on a baking sheet in a single layer. Make sure to not overcrowd the pan.
