I typically do not make fajitas using this cooking style but I will definitely make this again on busy nights. Flavor was great and prep was simple.

Absolutely delicious- I appreciate being able to throw this in the oven so I can do other things without having to stand watch over a skillet! As a volunteer Field editor I enjoy trying out new recipes. This one will be made time

I have yet to find another chicken fajita recipe that we like better than this. My mom would make fajitas growing up, but the downside was that the whole house would stink. These taste just like hers but no stinky house--win win!

We love this. I can put it all together and let it marinate in a zipper bag until I’m ready to bake it. We have used tortillas, put it on a salad, or made quesadillas with the chicken. Sometimes I don’t have Rotel and I use salsa.

I too have had this recipe for a while... and forgot about it! I will bring it back into rotation again. So easy and delicious. Best if you remember to drain the Rotel and don't skip the salt, it's not much but really necessary. Pop it in the oven and by the time you're finished cleaning up your prep mess it's ready! Watching carbs? This is also wonderful over mixed greens with a sprinkle of shredded cheese

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.

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.
