How To Baked Chicken Fajitas – Step By Step
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients and instructions.
Chicken Fajita Toppings
- Sour cream
- Pico De Gallo
- Cheese (you can use a Mexican blend, but you can use Cheddar, Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack)
- Black Beans & Rice
How To Cut Chicken For Fajitas
Use thinner pieces of chicken. If your chicken breasts are thick, you can slice them horizontally, and then cut them into less than ½ inch strips. Freezing them for about 30 minutes before cutting makes it easier to slice. Cut against the grain.
You can store these burritos in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5-7 days. You can use these glass meal prep containers to keep food fresh and safe, but any airtight containers will work.
When you’re ready to enjoy your meal, just reheat it in the microwave for 2 minutes and you’re good to go.
I love cilantro but some people don’t. It’s optional but I recommend it as a garnish! Sprinkle with cilantro to taste or serve on the side so that your guests can decide for themselves!
More Top Tips
- Make sure you have fresh citrus for people to use on their fajitas.
- Add some ground cinnamon to the sour cream for an extra kick.
- If serving these to kids, you can soak the onions in cold water for a bit, this takes a bit of the “bite” out of them.
