Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

As much as it’s nice to go out to a restaurant and order fajitas, it’s nice to be able to make it at home as well. I like the fact that this is a sheet pan meal that I can mix everything on and toss in the oven, less dishes to clean is always a good thing. The seasoning for this could also easily be used for making tacos as well. Pair this with Instant Pot Cilantro Rice and you’ve got an easy meal!
