I have been a fan of sheet pan dinners for a long time! There is nothing better than cooking an entire meal right on one baking sheet. These sheet pan chicken fajitas are so easy! It is as simple as cutting your chicken and vegetables and laying them on a lined baking sheet. Mix up the seasonings in a small bowl pour over the baking dish and bake!
