How to Make Sheet Pan Adobo Chicken Fajitas

To get this sheet pan fiesta started, get the chicken coated in the five-ingredient marinade. The adobo sauce brings the heat and honey brings the sweet. Smoked paprika and cumin add more earthy depth of flavor, and a splash of olive oil blends it all together for a glistening sheen. Once the chicken is happily marinating, chop the onion and peppers. I used two bell peppers and one poblano, but you can certainly add a jalapeno as well depending on your fam’s heat tolerance.

Tip: To save even more time, prep the chicken and chop the veggies the night before cooking.😉

Next, simply spread the chicken in a single layer on one half of an extra-large sheet pan, and place the peppers and onion on the other half. Drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle s&p on the veggies, toss, and pop in the oven. So easy!

After baking for 10 minutes, I stirred in a healthy tablespoon of minced garlic into the peppers and onion, and baked for 10 minutes more until the chicken was cooked through and the veggies began to char. While the fajita mixture is in the oven, you can warm or grill the tortillas and get your toppings ready.

Now it’s time for some seriously delicious fajitas! I kept things simple with toppings this time around, opting for just some avocado, lime wedges, fresh cilantro, shredded queso blanco cheese, and sliced fresno peppers🔥 for the more daring members of the family. Go with whatever your gang likes best and enjoy!! xo, Kim
