This is the best Clean Eating sheet pan chicken fajitas recipe. This is so easy to make and my daughter actually told me she thought dinner was good the first time I made it. It’s kind of sad it’s mentionable that my daughter told me dinner was good, but she usually either just eats dinner and leaves, so the fact that she actually said something means a lot.
I’m going to tell you right here and now that these are not the most authentic fajitas ever, but what they are is a good, easy and healthy Clean Eating chicken fajita recipe! I don’t like all the work and mess of fajitas. I need something I can prep then help children with homework and not have to worry about the food during homework time. These fit the bill.
The first thing I recommend is to make tortillas ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about it during the rush of dinner. Or, you could make them while the fajitas are cooking if you would rather. I also use chicken because I haven’t figured out the right kind of steak and since I don’t eat red meat from regular grocery stores, I can’t afford to feed steak to the whole family.
Cilantro and oregano essential oils are so strong that I recommend simply dipping a toothpick in the bottle and swirling it around in the olive oil to infuse it with flavor…even 1 drop can be too much and this way you can control the strength a bit easier.
Don’t be afraid to put a lot of paprika and cumin in the marinade. I put a lot on and my children used to be wary of the chicken because it was all red but then they tasted it and you can only taste flavor and not heat so they love fajitas and ask for them a lot. If you do want some heat, I would definitely recommend adding a little red pepper.
Something else I do that’s unconventional is I hate messing with filling tortillas, having it drip all over my hands (especially with interruptions from children, etc.) so I just mix all the ingredients together on the plate except the tortilla then break the tortilla over the top so it doesn’t get soggy. It may look gross but I think it tastes the best this way and it’s faster and easier. I dare you to try. . .
