Can I Use Different Fajita Vegetables?

Of course! Onion and bell peppers are the most traditional veggies included in fajitas, but you can include anything you have on hand. Just keep in mind that you may have to adjust the cook time slightly if you want to include heartier veggies.

Should I Line the Sheet Pan?

Nope! The chicken and veggies slide right off the sheet pan, so there’s no need to line it with foil or parchment paper.

How to Reheat Chicken Fajitas

If you have leftover sheet pan fajitas, I recommend heating the leftovers in a skillet on the stove. This will prevent the chicken from becoming rubbery and the peppers from turning to mush in the microwave.

Tips for the Best Chicken Fajitas

  • You’ll know when the chicken is finished cooking when it’s 165 degrees F in the center.
  • Make sure to toss the fajitas halfway through the baking time to ensure everything cooks evenly.
  • Toppings are optional, but my family loves these easy fajitas with sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese and tomatoes.
