Easy One Pan Chicken Fajitas with Chipotle Cilantro Sauce

One pan dinners are so needed for a busy family. Especially when you are so sick of the pile of dishes that supper prep can make. And that is when these easy one pan chicken fajitas come to the rescue. They are so easy and so delicious!

The thing that I love about chicken fajitas is that you can serve them in different ways depending on your taste preferences. I usually like to serve them on corn or flour tortillas. But I also like to serve them with rice to make a delicious chicken fajita rice bowl. For both options, I like to serve with lots of cheese and my chipotle cilantro sauce. My kids like to have just salsa and sour cream with theirs. But either way, they are delicious and easy.

When I make my chipotle cilantro sauce, I use a chipotle powder. Which I have a really hard time finding at my local grocery store. So I always order it from Amazon. You can find a link below the recipe for the chipotle powder that I like to use.

What I like the most about making these on a sheet pan in the oven is that the vegetables get nice and roasted. I love a nice charred pepper – so tasty! You could definitely make these on the stove in a pan, but you will not achieve that nice char that you get from the oven. I suggest cutting your other vegetables – the onions and mushrooms – thick so that they do not get overcooked.

So if you are looking for an easy and quick meal, you should try these one pan chicken fajitas for supper tonight! Serve on tortillas or on rice for a delicious meal that your family will love!
