Reviews for Baked Chicken Fajitas
"This was probably the best and by far the easiest fajita recipe I've ever tried! Using all the fresh rather than frozen veggies was awesome, and I absolutely loved putting it in the oven so I could go do something else instead of stirring endlessly on the stovetop or having to pre-cook the meat. It's definitely a time-saver! My family doesn't care for their veggies "crisp-tender," so I didn't drain the tomatoes to keep it moist and added an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time to make the veggies just a bit more done to our liking. I served it with tomatoes, lettuce, fat-free sour cream, shredded 2% sharp cheddar cheese, and taco sauce for toppings, as well as Spanish rice and fat-free refried beans to add on top or to serve on the side. Delicious and filling!"
"Love how easy this recipe is. I tend not to add the salt and add 1/2t garlic powder and 1/2t oregano."
"Easy and delicious."
"Great taste! My picky daughter even enjoyed it! Easier than preparing on the stove top."
"Very easy and delicious! Great flavor! If you wanted a little less spice you could use plain diced tomatoes."
"A working or busy Mom's kind of dish. Easy peasy and most importantly tasty too!"
"We loved this, so easy & yummy! Will be making this one again! Thanks!"
"This was easy and delicious. I had to make something quick and had most of these ingredients on hand. I had to substitute salsa for the tomatoes, but thought it did the trick."
"Loved it! The simplicity is the best part."
"This is a weeknight staple for us & I love that it only requires one dish -- fast, easy, & so yummy!I love it so much, I shared about making my version, in a recent blog post:http://mydarlingdays.blogspot.com/2015/05/make-baked-chicken-fajitas.html?_sm_au_=iVVs0PcHkMckLSMr"
"This recipe was quick and good. I enjoyed being able to just throw it together and put it in the oven when i was ready to eat! I added some zuccini fresh from my garden."
"I loved this. As another person said, there isn't QUITE as much spice as other fajita recipes, but that's what I liked about this one. I can't eat spicy food, and it was easy to dial back on the chili powder. Plus, all the other spices weren't overpowering. It felt like you could taste the peppers and tomatoes better because of this. My husband also loved it, he even licked his fingers when he was done! We will definitely be using this easy recipe again."
"Good, but thought the fajitas could have used a little more flavor!"
"I have never liked the fajitas I've made at home until I found this recipe. It's fantastic and so easy! I made my own whole wheat tortillas while it baked. [My only change was adding a sliced fresh jalepeno pepper to the mix. Yum!]"
"I used a bit more oil and put everything in a ziplock bag. I let it marinate for a day or more before I throw it in a pan. Easy and quick to do ahead. I have taken the bag to a friend with all the fixings when she had a boby. Easy."
"Can't beat something that's this easy, flavorful, and still relatively healthy."
"Love how quick and easy this is to make. A family favorite for sure."
"Delicious!!! This has been added to our Family Favorites recipe binder. We used whole wheat tortillas, and loved it. My dad didn't even notice that they were whole wheat (he hates whole wheat)."
"Very tasty. So easy and quick to make. Will be making this a lot!"
"Very tasty. So easy and quick to make. Will be making this a lot! Thanks for sharing!"
"Very tasty. So quick and easy to make. Will be making this a lot. Thanks for sharing!"
"LOVE THIS recipe!"
"I have made this many times and have used plain diced tomatoes even. It is very good either way. This makes a lot also, so I use leftovers for burritos or taco salads."
"This one is a keeper. I have made it with sliced kirt steak also and it was great."
"We love this recipe! It makes a lot and is great in tortillas and on a salad, or quesadillas. I love how light and easy this one is. It's a keeper."
"I love how simple these are to make! They always come out tender and juicy. Highly recommend these to fajita lovers."
"This recipe was very good. I will definitely make it again and probably won't make any changes."
"I thought these might be too spicy for my kids, but they hardly seemed spicy at all and the kids ate them up! We like them heavy on the peppers and onions, so I also added 1/2 an orange pepper and yellow pepper and another onion. I doubled the seasoning ingredients and had to cook a little bit longer."
"Easy and fast to prepare. The whole family loves this recipe served with shredded cheese and sour cream. In the summer we add julienned zucchini."
"This recipe is our favorite! It's so quick and easy and has great flavor! My husband and I add reduced fat sour cream and a little sprinkle of cheddar that makes it that much yummier!"
"Awesome recipe, my family loves it when I make these. We add Salsa and Shredded Cheese"
"Awesome recipe! I sauteed the peppers seperately."
"this is very easy and makes so much. I enjoy the leftovers and even have used them to make a fajita soup."
"This recipe is delicious and easy to prepare. Clearly 5 stars."
"This was a big hit with may family. My 4 year old loved it and my husband (who doesn't like to try new things) asked for seconds!! This will stay in my recipe box for sure. I will make this many, many more times. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!!"
"Just awesome. Probably the best recipe I have ever found outside of Lawrys fajita seasoning in the store which I have never been able to duplicate. My only recommendation would be to cook the green peppers, sweet red peppers, and onions separately without the seasoning, and then add them together with the baked chicken so the flavor of the vegetables remain intact. This is just a great dish!!!!!"
"Good recipe--easy and has a fresher taste than using packaged seasoning!"
"This has quickly become a family favorite. I only use 1/2 the amount of cumin called for in the recipe. This is a very tasty recipe, easy to make and doesn't take too long to bake. Perfect!"
"I really like this recipe. It tastes great and is easy to make."
"These are super tasty and have made them a few times already."
"This is one of my favorite recipies!! It is so quick and easy. And soooo flavorful"
