Storage

Store leftover sheet pan chicken fajitas in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

Tips

  • Be sure to slice your peppers and onions into similar-sized strips so that they cook evenly.
  • I like to slice the chicken thinner than the steak so that the steak does not overcook in the oven and the chicken still gets down.
  • You can use any type of steak you like for this recipe. I am a fan of a skirt or flank steak because they are lean and cook quickly, but sirloin steak is another great option.
  • If using a very lean cut of meat such as a top round or bottom round roast, you may want to marinate it overnight.

Substitutions and Variations

  • For a spicier dish, add chopped jalapenos to the peppers and onions.
  • Swap out the steak for grilled shrimp if you are a fan of seafood.
  • You can cook this sheet pan fajitas recipe in a skillet instead to cut down on dishes!
  • Switch up the spices and seasonings to your family’s liking.
  • Add in additional veggies such as squash, zucchini, corn, etc if you a fan of vegetables.
