Oven Baked Chicken (Or Pork) Fajitas

"Another awesome Pinterest find! Instead of using the mentioned spices, I just added a packet of fajita seasoning. The original recipe calls for chicken, but I used pork and it was still good (I haven't tried beef because I'm afraid it would get tough). I couldn't tell the difference between these and skillet fajitas. I served them with whole-wheat tortillas, low-fat sour cream, salsa, black beans, corn and cooked brown rice. Enjoy!"

    I gave this recipe 4 stars. I followed the recipe as directed except I used regular diced tomatoes and the packet of fajita seasoning. I love how quick and easy this recipe was! I think I will try this again using the seasonings as listed! Overall I'm adding this to our recipe rotation for sure! Thanks for sharing! Christine


The most defining trait in my life is that I am a mother to two wonderful boys (Tyler, 20 and Zayden, 9). I live in the little college town of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. It is the most wonderful place to live as it's nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and along the beautiful Susquehanna River. Seeing that we live in Central Pennsylvania, our family is also a bunch of HARDCORE Penn State Nittany Lion fans! We are...PENN STATE! I was lucky enough to be given tickets to see Joe Paterno win his 400th game as the head coach of the football team. I cried like I did when my children were born. The other love of my life is cooking. I didn't really start trying to cook until I was 20, but believe me I have made up for lost time! I absolutely adore baking and I do it whenever I can. I love making Christmas cookies and I have begun hosting our extended families at our home for Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. So far so good. I love food.com because it allows me to expand my culinary skills and my recipe box with ideas from other people like me. There is something for everyone and I have been a loyal member since 2005.
