Fajita Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

This time of year we are SO busy…I mean really, who isn’t?  Soccer, baseball, rugby…whichever sport you family is involved in, is in full force right now.  We have kids in sports 4 days out of the week right now, so for me, menu planning is at the upmost of importance.  And not only meal planning, but quick and healthy ideas.  I need dinner ready in less than one hour, and I need it to be healthy.

Fajita Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

That’s why I love sheet pan dinners so much.  You can add so many fresh and delicious ingredients to a pan, and have it all ready in less than an hour.  So during the time it takes for dinner to cook, I have time to get everyone ready for all of our activities.  But most importantly, we’re not eating fast food on the run.  Just fast healthy food at home.

Fajita Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

This fajita chicken dinner is really simple to make, and so very flavourful. I generously season the chicken and vegetables with my homemade taco seasoning, and the kids love it.  Then I serve everything with taco chips, salsa, and sour cream.  SO good.

Sheet Pan Dinner Tips

  • Feel free to use different coloured peppers!  Red, yellow, orange, green.
  • I used my homemade taco seasoning, but you can use a purchased package.
  • I didn’t find it necessary to line my sheet pan with tinfoil or parchment paper, but I have seen this done on other recipes.  None of the ingredients I used stuck to the pan.
  • I use this Nordic Ware sheet pan for my sheet pan dinners.
