Baked Chicken Fajitas

I love chicken fajitas, but by the time I get everything chopped & prepped I don't want to stand at the stove cooking! In this recipe you throw everything into a baking dish and let your oven do the work. This can be made into a freezer meal easily by putting everything into a gallon freezer bag, then thawing and baking when needed.

1-1/2 lbs boneless chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
15 oz can diced tomatoes
4 oz can chopped green chilies
1 sweet onion, cut in half and sliced
1 green pepper, sliced (I used half each of green, red, and yellow peppers)
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 packet fajita seasoning mix
flour tortillas and favorite toppings (cheese, sour cream, avocado/guacamole, lettuce, salsa)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together chicken, tomatoes, chilies, onion, and bell pepper in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Drizzle oil and sprinkle seasoning over chicken & vegetables; toss to coat. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve in warm tortillas with favorite toppings.
