Easy Keto Baked Chicken Fajitas {Low Carb Friendly}

Easy Keto Baked Chicken Fajitas {Low Carb Friendly}
1 1/2 to 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 medium onion, sliced into strips
1 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/4 tsp chili powder
1 3/4 tsp cumin
½ tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
4 tsp garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
juice of one lime
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice chicken and veggies into strips.
In a large bowl combine the olive oil and spices. Mix well.
Add the chicken and veggies to the seasoning mixture and stir until coated.
Pour the fajita mixture onto a greased sheet pan and spread out into a single layer. Depending on the size of your sheet pan, you may need to divide into two sheet pans. It will look like a ton of veggies, but they will shrink as they cook. Mansion
Bake for 11 minutes and stir then return to the oven and bake 11 additional minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way through. Due to the size of my baking pans and my oven, I placed one of the sheet pans on the bottom rack and the other on the middle rack. Halfway through cooking I switched them.
Make sure to check the temperature of the chicken for doneness as all ovens cook differently. It should read 165 in the thickest piece of the chicken.
If you’d like to brown your chicken fajitas, turn the oven to broil and bake for just a minute or two. Make sure to watch closely as it can burn very quickly when using the broiler.
Remove from oven and top with lime juice and chopped cilantro.
Serve on a bed of mixed leafy greens and top with homemade Keto Queso Dip and your favorite keto-friendly condiments such as sour cream, guacamole, sliced avocado, jalapenos, and a few tomatoes.
The nutritional information was calculated using 2lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts.
In less than 30 minutes of baking time, and dinner was on the table. We served our Keto Baked Chicken Fajitas on a bed of lettuce and garnished it with fresh tomatoes and jalapenos. Then, as I mentioned, we poured a little keto-friendly best queso on top. These low carb and keto fajitas taste fantastic leftovers as well.
Many different keto-friendly garnishes that pair wonderfully with keto chicken fajitas. I’ve listed several below for inspiration.
Sour Cream
Sliced avocados
cherry tomatoes
diced onions
freshly grated cheese
Pico de Gallo
fresh lime juice
I often serve them as is but if you’d like a little something more riced cauliflower would make an excellent keto side dish.
