  • 2 pounds chicken breast (boneless and skinless)
  • 10 oz Rotel tomatoes (drained well)
  • 1 large onion (sliced)
  • 2 large bell peppers (sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 oz Fajita seasoning
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend (shredded)


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Prepare a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. 

  2. Cut chicken breast into smaller slices. 

  3. Place chicken, drained Rotel, onion, and peppers into a large mixing bowl. Add oil and lime juice and toss to coat. Add fajita seasoning and toss again to coat. 

  4. Add all ingredients to your prepared casserole dish and bake for 30-40 minutes until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender. 

  5. Top with cheese and back into the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy!

    Optional: I topped mine with cilantro for garnish. 

Recipe Notes

Should I drain the Rotel?

For this recipe, I drain my Rotel very well. I didn’t want my tortilla to by soggy so draining well will help with that.
