Sheet Pan Fajitas

fajitas baked on a sheet pan with a plate of tortillas, bowl of pico de gallo, lime wedges, and fresh cilantro

Trader Joe’s Pollo Asado Autentico is, more or less, the chicken version of our classic Carne Asada: thin strips of boneless, skinless chicken breast, marinated in an ever-so-slightly spicy, bright, citrus-y marinade. The chicken is grill-ready, but also makes a lip-smackingly simple sheet pan meal when roasted with peppers and onions. Nothing complicated or fancy here; but oh boy is it delicious. 

Serves: 6 Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cooking Time: 25 - 30 Minutes



Position oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place onion, bell peppers, and olive oil in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Divide mixture among two large baking sheets; set aside.

Remove pollo asado from package and slice into 2x1-inch strips. Divide pollo asado between baking sheets. Place sheets on upper and lower racks of oven and bake 25-30 minutes, rotating halfway through, until chicken reaches 165°F. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

While fajitas bake, slice limes into wedges. Rinse and dry cilantro and remove stems. Warm tortillas in a skillet over medium heat, or directly over flame, if desired.

To assemble, fill a warm tortilla with fajitas and top with pico de gallo, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Repeat until satisfied.
