I like easy meals that can be whipped up with minimal fuss.

Weekdays can be tough.

Having to organize meals between working and other commitments can cause some time crunches, for sure.

Something like these Baked Chicken Fajitas can be thrown together with just a bit of chopping and tossing. It’s a nice meal that is guaranteed to please everyone. The bonus is you can customize your fajitas to how you like them.

Joe splashed on extra hot sauce, chives and sour cream. I added Greek yogurt, cheese and cilantro. For me, the cilantro was a must. I adore cilantro. 🙂

I picked a rainbow of peppers to add to my fajitas and, as always, an onion.

These are veggies I almost always have no my shopping list.

Next mix together a blend of spices to create that unmistakable taco taste.

Forget about the pre-packaged blends! Start building a nice spice collection and you will not be disappointed. It’s one of the most useful tools in a healthy kitchen.

I used a cornucopia of seasonings so don’t stress if you don’t have all of them.

Put your strips of veggies and chicken in the baking dish and toss with your seasoning blend and a couple glugs of olive oil.

This will get everything coated in spicy goodness.

Delicious toppings for your fajitas are:

  • cheese
  • shredded lettuce
  • Greek yogurt
  • chopped cilantro 
  • chipped green onions or chives
  • fresh avocado

While the fajitas bake in the oven, this gives you time to prepare your add-ons.

Grate the cheese, stir up your sour cream or Greek yogurt, chop up a bit of cilantro or chives.

Making a little station of toppings allows everyone to ‘dress-up’ their own fajita.

I tried these sprouted grain wraps from Ezekiel, which of course, were great. I have always been happy with the quality that Ezekiel puts out. Brown rice or another grain would taste good also!

So, by the way, if you’re a regular visitor to this blog ( hello all!) you may have noticed that I missed my post Wednesday.

Things were pretty busy, especially with celebrating this handsome little guy’s birthday!

Handsome grey cat named Louis who just turned eleven years old.

Our boy Louis turned eleven this week. And for the record, it’s pronounced Lou-ee. Not Lou-isss. The ‘s’ is a silent one. He’s Louis, as in Prince Louis. Yes, I’m crazy. 😉

For his birthday photo shoot, Lou played around with my camera lens,

… before abandoning me when he heard the rustling of the treat bag.


He was out there.

I caught up with him later for some birthday love.

Thanks for indulging me. 🙂

Now back the fajitas!

When they come out of the oven, your veggies are crisp tender and slightly charred on the edges and the chicken has soaked in the goodness from the seasonings.

This is a good time for a squeeze of fresh lime.

Here are my beauties, all ready to be devoured. 🙂

A dollop of creamy yogurt or sour cream is definitely a must.

I could go on but, really, I hope you all trust me by now.

Make these and feel happy about dinner. 🙂

  2. These fajitas look amazing! I love how easy your recipe is to prepare. I’m usually running back and forth between the grill and the stove cooking the chicken and peppers separately.

    1. You gotta love one dish meals! Although, being without a grill (not allowed in our building) I am a bit jealous. 😉 Have a great weekend!

  3. Awwwww Louis is toooo cute! Happy Birthday Prince Louis!

  4. Oh, I do truly love fajitas (and easy-peasy, meal-in-one recipes), and I could totally reach right through the screen and chow these gorgeous fajitas right this moment (and really … I haven’t even had breakfast yet!). Totally delicious, and so bursting with healthy veggies … plus cilantro (I’m a big cilantro fan, too! 😀 )! And happy, happy birthday Louis (even if you are kind of a traitor!) … as pretty as the fajita pictures are, I’ve gotta admit … it was the darling Louis pics that really made me smile!

    1. Thanks, Shelley! I am such a sucker for that cat. He ditches me for the treats all the time and I always take him back. 😉 He says thank you for the b-day wishes. And yes, again, crazy cat lady. No apologies. 🙂
