Fabulous Fajita Recipes

1. Easy Dinner – Fajita Chicken Bake Recipe

“This recipe takes about as much effort to prep as a crock pot meal would but instead of slow cooking all day, you just pop this quick and easy dinner in the oven for about 45 minutes and you are greeted with tender juicy chicken. Perfectly roasted peppers that are tender but with a slight crunch. Oh and the crispy cheese topping. Of course you couldn’t forget that!” – The Pinning Mama

2. Oven Baked Chimichurri Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas have never been easier!” – Melanie Makes

3. Triple Cheese Chicken Fajita Cheeseburger

“Creating a Chicken Fajita Cheeseburger has been on my personal kitchen to-do list for over a month now.
