Low-FODMAP Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas; Gluten-free, Dairy-free
November 12, 2020Printer Friendly Version
Hey loyal FODMAPPERS, I have another easy low-FODMAP one-pan recipe for you. Low-FODMAP Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas. Check it out…
Low-FODMAP Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are the BEST meal for the whole family. Something about making your own wrapped fajita is super satisfying. Both my husband and kids are so excited when they see me cooking up this dinner.
I had always figured that fajitas wouldn’t be a good recipe for my blog, since every time I have enjoyed them in the past there was so much onion involved. But great news…you can make a delicious fajita without onion and garlic.
I incorporate my versatile low-FODMAP Happy Spices Taco Seasoning, and the flavors of infused oils (safe for the low-FODMAP diet) to provide all the taste you love. Just wait till you try these low-FODMAP Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitias!!

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients *using available FODMAP data at time of posting
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Bake: 425 F
- 2 tablespoons low-FODMAP Happy Spices Taco Seasoning
- If you don’t have this, you can substitute 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp oregano and 2 tsp ancho chili powder
- Watch out for spice blends that have hidden onion and garlic added
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- If you have smoked paprika, this is even more flavorful
- 1 & ¼ tsp salt, plus more to taste
- 1 & ¼ tsp black pepper, plus more to taste
- 1 & 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
- You can also purchase chicken tenders that are pre-cut, just verify they are not infused with vegetable broth or flavorings as these often contain hidden onion and garlic ingredients
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
- 43g is one low-FODMAP serving
- 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
- 75g is one low-FODMAP serving
- Since different colored peppers are different in FODMAP levels- the moral is don’t take anything for granted 🙂
- 2 tablespoons onion or shallot infused oil (can also substitute regular olive or canola oil)
- I love using infused oils- all the flavor and NONE of the FODMAPs. See my Top 11 low-FODMAP tips for an explanation why!
- 2 tablespoons garlic infused oil
- For tips on shopping for infused oils, see my low-FODMAP recipe swap blog
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (do not substitute concentrates, they don’t taste nearly the same and may be higher in FODMAPs)
- This is about 1 medium lime or 2 small limes
- 6 (8-inch) gluten-free corn tortillas, or gluten-free flour tortillas with low-FODMAP ingredients
- I like the white corn tortillas, rather than yellow corn
- You can also opt for 12 (4-inch) tortillas
- Optional garnish: (note: some items contain dairy)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- About 1/3 cup cheese is one low-FODMAP serving
- 1 medium tomato, chopped
- FODMAPs are not detected in common tomatoes
- Avocado, sliced
- 1/8 avocado (30 g) is one serving, (this small amount is still very flavorful to add)
- Lactose free sour cream, chopped black olives, additional cilantro, low-FODMAP Sassy Salsa (prepared)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Baking spray
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with baking spray
- In a small bowl, combine low-FODMAP Happy Spices Taco Seasoning, paprika, 1 & 1/4 teaspoons salt and 1 & 1/4 teaspoons pepper
- Place chicken and bell peppers in a bowl, and toss with the infused oils and the seasoning mixture
- Lay chicken and peppers on the prepared pan in a single layer and bake for 25 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through and the vegetables are slightly crisp (you can turn the pieces halfway through, as needed)
- In the last few minutes, warm tortillas on a skillet or microwave, set aside (warming them helps the tortillas fold easier without ripping)
- Remove chicken from oven and toss with cilantro and lime juice
- Serve chicken with tortillas, and additional optionals: cheese, avocado, chopped tomatoes, cilantro, low-FODMAP salsa, olives, lactose-free sour cream

We LOVE your Chicken Fajita recipe. The flavor and the texture together with the red and yellow peppers thinly sliced were out of this world. The recipe and the preparation are very easy to follow. We liked that we didn’t have to marinade for hours. Last week we had to do this recipe twice because they didn’t last. Thank you so much for making our eating experience so real.
Kudos to you.
Thank you so much for your comments! We also could not believe how easy and tasty this meal was to prepare!!
Hope you have a great day and Kudos to you comment 😉
What would you serve with it? Thanks!
We find the Chicken Fajitas with the tortillas and the veggies to be a pretty satisfying meal on it’s own, but you can serve these with low-FODMAP Rice, Quinoa, Salad (low-FODMAP Southwest Salad and Tossed Salads are great), or potatoes (low-FODMAP Mashed Potatoes or Roasted Potatoes). Good luck!
Great Meal Prep!
This recipe was super easy to make and even easier to put into containers for meal prep. Just place the corn tortillas in a separate container so they don’t get soggy!!
You are so right, and thanks for the great tips! We love hearing from you!!
This was delicious and will be easy now that we’ve made it once. But the “printable” recipes are very difficult to read. There really isn’t any sense in including links in a for print version. They make it difficult to follow and use double the paper.
Sorry for your inconvenience Gen, but glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for having the printable version! I write any changes I make down for the next time (and everyone’s thoughts).
