{Recipe} Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas

Well, it's time one of my most popular recipes gets a much needed makeover. This is a favorite dish to make during the week.  I've played around with the recipe a bit...adding in shrimp (as you'll see in the latest version) & I've made it with steak. I've made this dish countless times since the original post, it's about time I updated the pics! 



I love Mexican food. Probably because most Mexican dishes involve cheese and sour cream. It should come as no surprise that Fajita's aren't my go-to dish because they aren't typically covered in melted cheese. However, when I saw the photo of this dish on Real Mom Kitchen and then read how easy it was, I was sold.   This dish was FULL of flavor and pretty healthy (minus the part where I used some light sour cream and yes, I am guilty of adding a little cheese. Just a little!)

Makes: Aprox 10 fajitas
Cook time according to Real Mom: Didn't say
Cook time according to Rachel: 35 minutes
How difficult was this for Rachel? Easy!

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1/2 lb jumbo shrimp, peeled (optional, I also used pre-cooked)
4 tbsp olive oil
4 tsp chili powder
4 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 medium onion, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, seeded & sliced
1 large red bell pepper, seeded & sliced
Tortillas (corn or flour)
Toppings if desired: cheese/sour cream


Preheat oven to 450 degrees
In a small bowl, combine oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder & salt. 
In a greased 9x13 baking dish, place strips of chicken (& shrimp, not pictured above). 
Drizzle seasoning mix over chicken. Add in vegetables. Stir to evenly coat.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes
Place chicken & veggies in tortillas with desired toppings. Serve!

Yeah, there is no new photo of this. Anything in a tortilla is a pain in the ass to photograph.
