Quick N’Easy Sheet Pan Dinner | August 10, 2017

Now that you’ve got mornings covered with our Back-To-School Breakfasts, it’s time to tackle dinner. Whether you are shuffling kids around to soccer practice or working on the latest school project, sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the evening to get a full, well-balanced dinner on the table. Instead of swinging by the nearest fast-food drive-thru or whipping up a tasty batch of Kraft Mac & Cheese, spice up your evening with these Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas.

What you’ll need:

Slice up your classic fajita veggies.

Give your chicken slices a quick toss in some taco seasoning.

Throw them all on the sheet pan and bake!

For an added flair, we kicked-up our sour cream a notch with a little lime zest and juice…this WILL change your life!

Put it all together on your favorite tortilla and enjoy!
