This is one dinner that I can make and it will be a hit with the kiddos, too. Yay for not having to cook multiple meals! These low carb chicken fajitas are the easiest, one-pan dish you can make.

Ingredients for Easy Sheet Pan Keto Fajitas
See the recipe card for full quantities – this is just an overview!
- Avocado oil (I like to use this because of the high heat point, but regular olive oil works, too!)
- red bell pepper
- orange bell pepper
- green bell pepper
- medium onion
- 1.5 lbs chicken breasts – I love to get organic chicken breasts from Butcher Box!
The best part is the Easy Homemade Paleo Fajita Seasoning Mix! Many of the seasoning packets you find in stores have gluten, MSG, and lots of additives. This is an easy and cost-effective alternative! You can triple the amounts used in this recipe and store the extra seasoning mix for future use. Here is what you need:
- Chili powder
- Garlic powder
- Red pepper flakes
This mixture also makes a great homemade taco seasoning!
How to make One Pan Fajitas:
Making fajitas in the oven has never been easily. No stovetop splattering or mess to clean up!
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Slice the peppers, onions, and chicken into thin strips (about 1/4-1/2 inch wide). Make sure the chicken pieces are of even thickness to prevent uneven cooking. This also helps them to crisp up. When everything is piled on top of each other, they end up steaming instead of baking. Spacing everything out as much as possible is key!
Put the peppers and chicken strips into a a large bowl and add the avocado oil and spices. Mix it all together and spread it out evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until everything is cooked through and beginning to brown.
How To Serve Paleo Fajitas
For gluten free, serve in corn tortillas. For paleo, use grain free tortillas or to make this Whole30 friendly, serve on a salad/in a bowl with cauliflower rice, avocado, salsa, and dairy free ranch! The options are endless when it comes to putting together your own healthy fajita bowl.
Are these fajitas Keto? They are! With only 9 grams of carbs per serving, this meal is definitely low carb diet-friendly.
Are fajitas Whole30 compliant? These are! All of the ingredients used here are Whole30 friendly.
What size sheet pan should I use? I love to use this 15 x 21 inch sheet pan for all of my recipes. It’s big enough so everything is spread out and not overlapping, which gets them nice and crispy!
Are fajitas gluten free? Yes, this fajita recipe is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo.
Can you freeze chicken fajitas? Sure can! To freeze, place the chicken, veggie, & spice/oil mixture into a gallon freezer bag. Seal the ziplock bag, squeezing out as much of the air as you can as you do so. The day before you’d like to cook the fajitas, move the bag to the fridge to thaw.
