Recipe of the Week: Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas with Rainbow Peppers

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas with Rainbow Peppers
Serves: 6
  • 1 pound of chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 2 ½ bell peppers, sliced (or ½ of a Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Purple pepper to get the rainbow effect)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine olive oil and spices in a small bowl.
  3. Cover a large sheet pan with foil. Place the chicken and veggies on the pan and pour the oil and spice mixture over the top. Toss to combine. Spread the chicken and veggies evenly on the pan, so they are in a single layer.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and veggies are softened.
  5. May be served with warm tortillas, plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream), guacamole, salsa, lime wedges and fresh cilantro
The purple bell peppers were found at a farmer’s market – I have not seen these in standard grocery stores

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
