Traeger Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Cooking large meals is always a challenge. I get it. You don’t have a lot of time, but you want what you serve to still taste good.

If you find yourself in this boat, I’ve got a go-to meal for you. Whether you’re cooking for a crowd, or you have a large family like me, sheet pan chicken fajitas are the way to go.

Smoked Chicken Fajitas

Traeger Chicken Fajitas

Chicken fajitas served at a great Mexican restaurant are one of my all-time favorites. I love everything about them. The onions, the bell peppers, the fresh tortillas, and getting to build them the way I want, with as much or as little of each ingredient in each tortilla. Seven kids later, and I rarely get to go out to any restaurants.

That doesn’t mean I don’t get fajitas anymore, I just gotta make ’em at home, and make enough for everyone.

Cooking them on a sheet pan on my Traeger grill gave them an extra smoky flavor component that you just don’t get anywhere else.

Tips for making the best fajitas on the Traeger

Cut your chicken into thin strips and preheat your grill all the way with the sheet pan inside. You’re going to want the sheet pan red hot when the meat and vegetables hit it.

Eating healthy is important in our family, and with only two tablespoons of oil in this whole recipe, you’ll appreciate it for being low in fat and high in protein. My wife and all my kids love when I make these, and I know whoever you make them for will love them too.

When I said build them how you want, I meant it. Look at the picture above and you’ll notice the Instant Pot Mexican Rice inside of the fajita.

I encourage parents to let their kids build them how they want too. Kids can be picky, but if they feel they have some choices with their food, they might be more inclined to try new things. Slice, dice, and chop away and serve these with all the fixings.
