I love fajitas! What I don’t love is having to stand over a hot grill when it is 100 degrees outside to cook the fajitas.  This delicious Oven Baked Fajita recipe is perfect for those days when it’s too hot, too rainy or too cold to grill!

Oven Baked Fajita Recipe

I saw something about baked fajitas recently and the idea stuck with me. After googling “fajitas in the oven” and found that everyone was pretty much using the same recipe, I figured the fajitas must be good.

I had 5 pounds of chicken breasts in the freezer and decided to cook it all up as fajitas and portion the meat to freeze for future dinners.

The fajitas were fabulous and really very easy! My 7-year-old complimented the meal more than once and that says a lot…

I definitely recommend you try baking your fajita meat in the oven!

  2. Ack! This is brilliant!! Hubby and I have been *all about* make ahead meals this month. We've got a system down so that we never eat out at work for lunch. But dinner still sends me scrambling. I *love* the idea of whipping these up while working on something else, and then freezing them to pull out whenever. How does the texture do after you thaw? If you have a minute, I'd love for you to link up to Sweet Sharing Monday – http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-22/

  7. What a great idea! I'm always looking for easy meals since I work right up to dinner time. This would be easy for me to prepare ahead of time, so my husband could pop it in the oven. I really like the idea of making a bund and freezing it too!

  8. What a great idea, especially for the winter months when we can't fire up the grill. This will be one of my favorites for the winter. Your recipe is awesome! Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.

  10. I love fijitas! I never make them over a grill though, never thought about that. I always do it on a skillet on top of the stove. But this looks great!
