Holy sheet this is so good! I mean no sheet..this is really good and really easy! Okay, okay…enough of the sheety jokes. I can’t help myself…Laughing Spatula remember?
I love the idea of everything dumped onto a sheet pan, tossed together then thrown in the oven and boom….dinner done! In fact I love the concept so much, I am busy developing several more sheet pan recipes to share with you soon. Been up to my elbows in sheet…pans…argh, somebody stop me.
Another few reasons to love this recipe. It’s healthy, low fat, low carb, Paleo and Whole30 compliant. It also feeds a crowd and provides leftovers for that boring old lunchbox. Kick it up with hot sauce, or maybe a jalapeño mixed in with the veggies if you like spicy. Serve with sour cream, avocado, grated cheese…all your favorite fajita fixings! Wrap it all up in a warm tortilla, lettuce leaf or dump it on salad.
- Slice your chicken and veggies about the same thickness to ensure everything is done at the same time.
- Use the convection feature on your oven if you have it, it will brown the veggies nicely.
- I purchase my large sheet pans at Costco.
- You can substitute a casserole dish or 9 x 13 cake pan in a pinch.
Great served with my Best Spanish Rice recipe!
