Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

'Sheet pan meals' are the hottest topic on the recipe blogging scene and it's easy to understand the appeal. What's not to love about a recipe that uses just one baking pan, can be cooked and ready to serve in under 30 minutes, and easily stretches to feed a crowd? (The New York Times food writer called this sheet pan trend 'the poster child for hands-off cooking' which sums it up perfectly.) With the Pesach pace picking up, no-fail recipes like these are a godsend, and this version is one of my favorites. Adapt vegetables to your tastes, substitute chicken with tofu or soya strips for vegetarians, and see serving ideas in the notes. Dare I say that sheet is right up your culinary street?
