Baked Chicken Fajitas

My family has a little, ok, a big love affair with Mexican food! We love our enchiladas, tacos, tostadas, rellenos, quesadillas, and of course, fajitas! I have a fajita recipe (here) that I love, it is our standard. But, there is always room for one more awesome fajita recipe, right? This is for baked fajitas. I loved the idea of baking the fajitas, it was super easy. The results were delicious! The leftovers also made for really tasty quesadilla fillings!
Baked Chicken Fajitas
1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 - 4 oz. can diced green chiles
1 medium onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, sliced
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
Grated cheese and assorted fajita toppings
Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 13x 9 in. baking dish. Mix chicken, onion, chiles, bell pepper in the dish. Pour oil and lime juice over the top. In a small bowl, mix the spices together. sprinkle over the chicken mixture and toss lightly to coat. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve on tortillas with cheese and any other toppings that you want and have handy.
