I have always loved chicken fajitas. When I was a kid, I would order them from the menu just so I could have them come to my table smoking and deliciously hot. I'd never make them at home because I always thought they would take too much time. Boy, was I wrong.

These sheet pan chicken fajitas are so easy you're going to go crazy over them. So easy and packed full of delicious flavor. Total yum.
