Chicken fajita casserole is a dish the whole family can enjoy. I mean one dish is a busy mama’s dream, so delicious and easy cleanup. My kids arent crazy for large cut veggies so I will usually slice theirs up super fine before serving. However, hubby and I love this as is, we cleared out plates. Generally, I like to serve it with rice, or cauliflower rice for myself.

I love this chicken fajita casserole for leftovers too. It tastes so delicious in a tortilla!

You can take a short cut and buy thinly sliced chicken breasts, I like to save a few dollars and buy the whole breast and slice them in half at home.
