One-Pan Chicken Fajitas

It just doesn’t get much easier than this recipe for home made chicken fajitas. Juicy flavorful street taco style fajitas are delicious and fun to eat. The secret to this tasty recipe is the dry seasoning mix and the lemon juice that are baked to perfection and produce a well balanced flavor of a traditional fajita. Just cut everything up put it on the pan and place in the oven. You can serve on hard or soft shell but I prefer mine on toasted corn tortillas to get that authentic flavor of an unmistakably good street taco.

When the family requests fajitas or street tacos simply watch this video and follow the instructions below and you will have a pan full of delicious food for the table in less than 35 minutes. Letting the oven do the work frees up the cook to toast tortillas, cook black beans or a nice Spanish rice to deliver the eatfoodlicious experience.
