Baked Chicken Fajitas - Good To You and Good For You

This is not one of our family recipes or even one that we have developed. It is a recipe that is easy to prepare, delicious, and low fat and healthy. I am not sure where this recipe originated, but my girls love it and prepare it often for their busy families on weeknights. I know that you will want to add it to your recipe file for an easy go to meal that is great to serve to company as well.

Baked Chicken Fajitas

1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 Tbs vegetable oil
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies (Rotel)
1 medium onion - thinly sliced
1 large bell pepper, seeded and sliced- use  1/3 green, red, and yellow for vivid color
Flour tortillas
Toppings that you like - such as sour cream - guacamole - cheese

Prepare the oven to 400 degrees.   Place chicken strips in a greased 13 X 9 baking dish. 
 In a small bowl combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, and salt.
Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat.
Next add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the dish and stir to combine. 
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve on tortillas with desired toppings.
