Chicken Fajita Bake

 Hey all!  Today I am sharing one of my very favorite recipes right now.  I first discovered this recipe via Caitlin (Southern Curls & Pearls) and have made it multiple times since.  I make it a bit different than her original recipe, though, so I wanted to share my adaptation.


This recipe is so easy, packs a ton of flavor and can be served in various ways.  I have served it with tortillas, with rice, inside a hard taco shell, and on top of chips for nachos.  And each time it has been just as delicious.



Chicken Fajita Bake (adapted from Southern Curls & Pearls)

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 red onion

2 red peppers

1/2 packet taco seasoning

chile lime seasoning

olive oil

kosher salt

black pepper

toppings: shredded sharp cheddar cheese, Greek yogurt (or sour cream)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut the chicken breasts in half, length wise.  Place in a single layer in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  

Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the chicken.

Cut the red onion into bite size pieces, then layer in the pan over the chicken.

Cut the red peppers into bite size pieces, then layer in the pan over the onion.

Drizzle olive oil over the top of the peppers / onions.  Sprinkle with a liberal amount of chile lime seasoning, kosher salt, and black pepper.  

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.


From there, I remove the chicken from the dish and slice, then serve up with the onions and peppers.  I use shredded cheddar cheese and Greek yogurt as toppings.  


It is SO darn good!  Not to mention, extremely easy.  Sometimes I prep the onion and peppers ahead of time, so that when it comes to dinner all I really have to do is assemble and bake.


Linking up with Lindsay.

  3. This sounds SO good. I'll have to try it sometime. Is Chili Lime seasoning just a regular spice that you find at the store? I'm trying to figure out how I've never heard/seen it before!
