These quick and easy Baked Chicken Fajitas are packed with veggies, all cooked in one pan, and ready in 30 minutes! Plus they are clean eating, low carb, gluten-free, and Whole30 friendly.

I love fajitas in almost any form but when I don't have time to cook them stove-top, I make this simple oven baked version. They take a little longer but don't have as much active cooking time, which means I can get all sorts of things done in the kitchen while they cook. And truth be told, usually to make it even easier, I pick up pre-sliced vegetables at the salad bar so all I have to do is mix up the seasoning and toss everything in a pan. It couldn't be easier and we seriously love these fajitas - maybe even more than the traditional version.

Additionally, these fajitas are perfect for meal prep if you like to prepare meals on the weekend. They actually taste better after a night in the fridge since the flavors have time to combine and deepen in the fridge. Then you can use them for lunches or dinner during the week. Serve them in the traditional sense with flour tortillas, salsa, cheese, and avocado. Try them in a low carb wrap with your favorite cheese for a quick quesadilla. Finally try them over rice, cauliflower rice, or wrapped up in lettuce for a delicous meal.

When I calculated the nutrition info into the W.W. app, it comes up as 4 Freestyle points, not 1.

I would recommend using the recipe calculator vs. the nutrition calculator for the most accurate points count. The recipe calculator counts the chicken as 0 points but when you use the nutritional info, the calories are counted for the chicken which causes it to be higher in points.

Would that be for the whole recipe or for one serving? If it’s four for the whole recipe, then it’s only 1 per serving.

Delicious fajitas, easy to make, very filling! Ate with Tumaro's low-carb chia wraps, fat free cheese, and 1/4 cup of spanish rice.

This was an excellent fajita recipe. It may to a smidgen longer then doing it on the stove top but the simplicity of only one pan to wash is wonderful. Flavours are great. Will make this again.
