Whole30 + Keto Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
This Keto Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas Recipe is a simple and fast dinner! Throw all the veggies and chicken on a sheet pan and let the oven do all the work for you!
- 4 bell peppers ribs + seeds removed, sliced
- 2 red onions sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
- 4 chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons taco seasoning <- link to homemade recipe that is Whole30 approved
- Toppings of choice: guacamole, salsa, cauliflower rice, sliced jalapenos, cilantro, lettuce, cashew queso, sliced avocado, etc.
Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss the cut bell pepper + onion in oil . Spread in an even layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle on 1 tablespoon of the taco seasoning.
Place the chicken breasts on top of the vegetables. Drizzle with a little more oil , and sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning.
Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft and the chicken has an internal temperature of 165ºF.
Remove from the oven. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken breasts.
Serve as burrito/taco bowls with toppings of your choice, on top of a salad, or as tacos in lettuce cups, etc.
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for 5 days. This makes a great meal prep! See meal prep instructions in the notes.
Meal Prep Instructions: Once cooked and completely cool, store in an airtight container with your favorite sides/toppings for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. I love these plastic ramekins to hold salsa or guacamole. HEATING: I personally prefer it cold, but to heat remove the salsa/guac, and either microwave until warm, about 3-5 minutes (I like to sprinkle in a little water to help it steam and prevent it from drying out). Or reheat in a 350ºF oven until warm, 10-15 minutes.
You want to use whole chicken breasts rather than sliced strips of chicken. The veggies take a full 30 minutes to soften, and sliced chicken strips would get much too overcooked and dried out.
