Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease a baking dish. Place chicken breast on a shallow plate; sprinkle cumin, chili powder, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper on both sides. Keep some of the spices for sprinkling over the vegetables.

Step 2

Arrange chicken breast into the prepared baking dish, drizzle with oil. Top chicken breast with bell peppers and onion, then sprinkle some of the remaining fajita seasonings. Finish with shredded mozzarella cheese on top.

Step 3

Bake the fajita chicken casserole for 20-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165 F (74 C). You can broil the fajita chicken casserole for 2 minutes at the end to crisp up the top (optional).
