This Chili Lime Fajitas recipe is the BEST recipe for homemade chicken fajitas! It’s quick, healthy, and one of our favorite ways to use Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Seasoning Blend

Seasoning blends are one of my favorite gluten-free foods to buy at Trader Joe’s. I can’t get enough of them! Each seasoning blend is packed with flavor and adding them your meals is so simple! 

Chili Lime Chicken Fajita Ingredients

Here’s what you”ll need to have this meal on the table in less than 30 minutes!

  • Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Seasoning
  • Chicken Breasts
  • Peppers
  • Onion
  • Oil
  • Limes
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Salt & Pepper

Start by simply mixing the chili lime seasoning with oil. Spread the chicken, peppers, and onions  across a large sheet pan. I use this extra large sheet pan to make sure there’s enough room for all ingredients to spread out and cook evenly.

Season with salt & pepper, then toss the chicken, peppers and onions with the chili lime fajita marinade. After baking, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro across the top of the fajitas is the perfect finishing touch to this delicious flavor combination.

Time Saving Cooking Tip: Chop Your Fajita Ingredients ahead of Time!

Prep the ingredients in advance to make this easy meal even quicker! To save time, cut the chicken and veggies ahead, then store in ziploc bags, or any other airtight container, in the fridge until ready to bake. There’s no marinating time needed, so you can have this dinner on the table in no time!

This dish is so versatile and customizable for any dietary needs or preferences. Switch up the chicken for steak or shrimp, or go meatless by filling up the whole sheet pan with your favorite veggies. The flavor is in the seasoning, and it is literally so yummy on any of these options!

Serve these Chili Lime Fajitas with warm gluten-free tortillas, rice/cauliflower rice, or on top of shredded lettuce.

Whether you need a quick weeknight meal, or are cooking for a crowd, be sure to save this recipe for your next homemade fiesta!
