This Oven Baked Fajitas recipe popped up in my facebook news feed and I thought it sounded awesome. It definitely delivered. It’s super healthy, and I served it on whole-wheat tortillas to save calories. My friends and I all agree this one is a keeper.

Recipe Notes

This is a little spicy as instructed, add or reduce chili powder and cumin according to taste. We found it to be a little runny as well, use a slotted spoon to serve and most of the juice will stay in the baking dish. You want that juice to keep the chicken moist while cooking. 

If you want to go low carb, just skip the tortillas!
