When it comes to eating better, I am always in search of spicy or Mexican dishes! These are by far my favorite meals to eat, and when I come across something that is not only healthy, but super easy, it’s a total win!

First things first, I chopped up 1 red bell pepper, 1 onion, 1 poblano pepper, and 2 jalapenos.

I then sliced 3 small boneless skinless chicken breasts. I decided to go light on the meat and heavier on the vegetables, but you could easily add more chicken! I only used 1/2 pound of chicken, but the recipe below calls for a full pound.

Once everything was chopped, I combined it all in a large bowl.

For my fajita seasoning, I used 1/2 teaspoon of all of these seasonings (except for the cayenne pepper i used 1/4 teaspoon), and mixed them with 1/4 cup olive oil.

The seasoning smelled so good!

I poured the seasoning over the meat and veggies, then mixed well. I then transfered it all into a 11×7 casserole dish (if using more meat, I’d suggest using a 9×13 casserole dish).

Bake in the oven at 400 for 25 minutes. And voila! Chicken fajitas ready without the preservatives and additives of a packaged fajita seasoning, and without the added work of having to saute everything!

I will be enjoying these fajitas in romaine lettuce leaves instead of tortillas to make it even more healthy!
