Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

Happy New Year!  I wanted to start out with a recipe that I fell in love with!
I know these pictures are horrible... I had started eating before thinking about taking a picture and then they were just too good to put down and figure out good lighting etc. for the picture.  So this is what you get.  But don't let the bad pictures fool you, these are so delicious and ridiculously easy.  I've made them several times since finding the recipe a few weeks ago and I know they will probably be at least in a once a month rotation at our house.

Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas
From: Real Mom Kitchen
Prep Time:  10 min
Cook Time: 20-25 min

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1 (15oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 medium onion
1 large bell pepper, sliced and seeded (I like some of green and red for color)
Flour Tortillas
Your choice of toppings: cheese, sour cream, guacamole

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Place chicken strips in a greased 9x13 baking dish.

2. In a small bowl combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano and salt.

3. Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat.

4. Next add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the dish and stir to combine.

5. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.  Serve on tortillas with desired toppings.
