Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Mix the chili powder, paprika, oregano, cumin, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Put the chicken strips, bell peppers, onion, garlic, oil, and lime juice in a large bowl and mix to distribute the oil and lime juice thoroughly. Sprinkle in the spice mixture and toss to coat the chicken and vegetables.
  4. Spread the seasoned chicken and veggies on the sheet pan in a single layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through the baking time until the chicken is cooked through and tender. If you enjoy a little char on your fajitas, you can place the pan under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes at the end before serving.
  5. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve.

Tip

Refrigerate leftovers for up to 5 days.

Make a double batch of the spice mix and store it in the refrigerator to make fajitas even more quickly.

Keto sheet pan beef fajitas?

Use beef instead of chicken for variety. Sirloin steak strips cook a bit faster than chicken. The beef is typically cooked and tender within 14 to 17 minutes.

You can also use shrimp, but because shrimp cooks so quickly, you might choose to add it after the vegetables have cooked for 10-15 minutes.

Make a keto or low-carb fajita bar

Feeding a crowd? Make a fajita bar with toppings such as sour cream, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, fresh avocado, or guacamole.

Guests might also enjoy some salsa verde or homemade tortillas with their meal.

    Thanak you for delicious receipe, BUT leftovers up to 5 days is too long,
    I think a maximum of 3-4 days in the fridge is very well covered.

    Delish. Even my non Keto hubby wants it again. Bought some egg wraps and with sour cream I had a fajita that was tasty in all ways. Hubby piled it on rice. I will make a bulk seasoning mix for even faster prep and use it as a salad protein as well. Thanks.

    What are egg wraps?

    They are wraps (like tortillas) made of eggs. I believe there is a brand called Egglife that's available in some stores or you can make your own!

    Absolutely delicious. I piled some on a bed of greens.
