Sheet-Pan Pineapple Chicken Fajitas

For our fajitas, I combine chicken and pineapple for a different flavor. These fajitas are more on the sweet side, but my family loves them! —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins, halved lengthwise
  • 1 large red or sweet onion, halved and sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • Optional: Pico de gallo, sour cream, shredded Mexican cheese blend, sliced avocado and lime wedges

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, mix first 5 ingredients; stir in chicken. Add onion, peppers, pineapple, honey and lime juice; toss to combine. Spread evenly in 2 greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans.
  • Roast 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through cooking. Remove pans from oven; preheat broiler.
  • Broil chicken mixture, 1 pan at a time, 3-4 in. from heat until vegetables are lightly browned and chicken is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Serve in tortillas, with toppings and lime wedges as desired.

Test Kitchen tips
  • If you love pineapple, add even more as a topping or serve with a fruit salsa like peach or pineapple salsa.
  • If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, substitute with canola or vegetable oil.

      My son is a picky eater. Not only did he love it the first day but ate the leftovers the next day. Will definitely use again!

      I have made this a couple times and it is always a success! My whole family loves it and it is easy and fast too. The pineapple cooks away so it's just a nice extra flavor, not too much. Delicious!

      We are not big fans of cooked pineapple but this recipe is delicious and easy. My first try at making a sheet pan meal that was successful. (I tried to create one and failed). As a TOH Volunteer Field Editor I have fun rating these recipes and this one deserves a try.
