Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional, but definitely worth it)
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 small yellow onion, cut into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • Corn tortillas
  • Optional toppings: avocado, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, cilantro
  • Optional sides: charred corn, rice, beans

Directions


  1. Pour pineapple juice, canola oil, soy sauce, liquid smoke, garlic, cayenne pepper and black pepper into a ziploc bag. Gently swish it around to combine ingredients.
  2. Add chicken to bag and seal. Gently toss bag and massage chicken to make sure it’s well-coated with marinade. Refrigerate and let the marinade soak in for at least 2 hours, but as long as 24 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Drizzle sheet pan with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Place bell peppers on half the sheet pan. Drizzle with remaining teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place chicken on other half of sheet pan, lightly shaking off the marinade while doing so (you don’t want marinade soup on your sheet pan).
  4. Wrap tortillas in foil.
  5. Put sheet pan and tortillas in oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degree. Scoop the chicken off the sheet pan and transfer to a plate to let it rest. Remove tortillas from move, but leave wrapped. Return veggies to oven for about 5 minutes, or until they get the perfect char.
  6. Remove veggies from oven and add to plate with chicken. Let everyone in your family assemble their own perfect fajitas.
