Sheet Tray Supper: Chicken Fajita Tacos

Sheet Tray Supper: Chicken Fajita Tacos

Okay, I almost didn’t post this recipe because it’s such an easy/non-recipe.  BUT…I don’t know about you, but for me, the end of July is dragging in the kitchen, so I could use as many easy/non-recipes as humanly possible.  Who wants to be inside fussing with food? I want to be outside, swimming, bike riding, golfing, hanging out with my family and friends…so, I’ll take as many recipes as possible that are simple.

What makes this recipe even more simple than my normal Sheet Tray Suppers is that I just bought fajita chicken already seasoned up from behind my butcher’s counter.  My grocery store sells fajita chicken this time of year (not cooked, just seasoned) and I know many others do too.  But…if yours does not, then just season some sliced chicken yourself with a little taco seasoning or chili powder.  Easy, easy, easy!  I literally threw this on a baking tray, popped it in the oven and forgot about it until we were ready to eat.  I pulled it out and served it alongside some of Tab’s Guacamole.  Dinner was DONE!

This recipe serves as many as you want!  Just load your baking sheet up with as much as your family needs for the night.

Shopping List
Fajita chicken (we used a chicken that was uncooked but already seasoned for fajitas from our butcher’s counter)
1 red onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeds removed and sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
salt and pepper (I love a good Kosher salt)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil and then spray with Pam (for easy clean up!).  Line up your meat and veggies on your baking sheet (try as hard as you can not to over-crowd).  Drizzle a very liberal amount of EVOO down over everything (several big tablespoons) and then sprinkle on a very generous pinch of both salt and pepper.

Place your tray in the oven and roast for about 30-35 minutes.

When you pull your try out, your veggies will be tender and your chicken cooked to perfection.

We served ours with corn tortillas, salsa, sour cream and guacamole.

Simple!

    Sheet tray suppers are my absolute favourites. I actually do that every night I don’t feel like making anything fancy. There’s minimal cleaning to be done as well thanks to the tinfoil used, haha!

    I am reading your blog from Barcelona…yes, you have officially gone global. I have been reading you for years and just moved here two months ago. It made me laugh because I would love to make a sheet pan dinner but now my tiny Eurpean oven will only fit a quarter size sheet pan…lol! I will have to make one item at a time! Reading your blog makes me feel a little less homesick so thank you! But I am super sad to be missing the Nordstrom Sale 🙁

    I love sheet tray suppers — it’s almost like the crock pot — one dish to clean and all you do is toss it in and forget about it for awhile until it’s done!

    hey girl- this looks so good!

    I know this is likely a no brainer for those who make these dinners a lot but I want to start making these so I have to ask. Do you just drizzle the EVO or do you drizzle and then turn and make sure everything has some EVO on it?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 25, 2017 at 12:48 pm

      I just drizzle it right over the top of everything! It roasts up perfectly!!

    I’m adding this immediately to my Pinterest idea board! Single pan dinners are one of my absolute favorites for healthy and easy dinners, plus the leftovers always work well incorporated into other dishes.

    Your sheet-tray suppers (and the “spinoffs” they’ve inspired for me) have been saving our lives this summer as our little one transitions to table food and we try to fit in dinner as a family before his bedtime. If you’re looking for a future cookbook idea, I would SO invest in a book of these meal ideas.

    Just tried my first Sheet Tray Supper tonight – Mushrooms, Peppers, Onions and Chicken Sausage seasoned with fresh chopped parsley. It was delicious with a capital D and who doesn’t enjoy an easy clean up!

    Do you cut the chicken before roasting it?

    • Mix and Match Mama August 15, 2017 at 4:16 am

      Yes! The chicken needs to be cut into strips.
