Baked Chicken Tender Fajitas

These baked chicken tender fajitas are made with chicken tenderloins, spices, onions, and peppers! It’s a complete and healthy meal that everyone will enjoy!

I like to serve this with warm tortillas, guacamole, and instant pot cilantro lime rice.


– chicken tenders  – onions – bell peppers – olive oil – lime  – chili powder – paprika – cumin – oregano – garlic powder

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix until well combined.

Coat the chicken tenderloins with one tablespoon of olive oil, half of the spice blend, and 2 teaspoons of lime juice. Set it aside. 

Coat the peppers and onions with remaining olive oil, remaining spices, and remaining lime juice. Toss to combine and place them on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

Tips and Recipe Variations

- I highly recommend using chicken tenderloins, but if you want to use chicken breasts, make sure not to overcook them. - Add 1 teaspoon of salt for every pound of meat.
