How to make fajitas in the oven

Preheat your oven to 210°C / 200°C fan oven / 410°F / Gas mark 6. Slice the chicken and the peppers, and add then to a baking sheet. Sprinkle all the seasoning and olive oil on top. Use your hands or tongs to turn everything, making sure every piece is completely coated. Add the sheet pan to the oven, and bake until the peppers are lightly roasted and the chicken has cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add the wraps to the oven for the last minute.

Split the chicken and peppers between the wraps, then add any other toppings. I like adding some fresh coriander, avocado, lemon juice and sliced chilies. You can also try adding red onion, cheese, lettuce, salsa, fresh tomatoes or sweetcorn.

How to make low carb fajitas

Peppers and chicken are quite low on carbs naturally. You can make a low carb version of the dish by omitting the wraps. Serve the rest of the ingredients as a fajita salad, in lettuce wraps, or in keto wraps.

Can you reheat fajitas?

Yes. Leftover fajitas can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave until piping hot throughout.
