Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

I saw sheet pan chicken fajitas in a magazine, but didn't like that version. So I googled it.  This is what I found and we love it.  As in Ray raves over it. And it is SO easy!!

Chicken Fajitas
Modified from Real Housemoms
 
3 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
dish of ground red pepper
salt and pepper
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1/2 green pepper, sliced
1/4 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp oil
2 tsp lime juice
tortillas
toppings
 
Preheat oven to 400.  Mix spices in a small bowl and set aside.
 
Place chicken into bowl and add oil and lime juice and then spices.  Mix to coat.  Add in peppers and coat them as well.  As a note, I find most recipes use way too many peppers to chicken so I use a lot less and I tried to adjust this recipe to show that.  I really just add until it looks right....They used 3 whole peppers and a whole onion which is WAY too much in my opinion. Maybe not in yours.  When I made this last, I used about what I wrote in the recipe. 
 
Roast in oven for 20-25 minutes, mixing once halfway through.
 
Serve in tortillas with favorite toppings.
 
Serves 4.
