I love quick, simple, and easy dishes that don’t break the bank, but are full of flavor. This Mojo Chicken and Fajita Vegetables recipe is super easy – and incredibly budget friendly, since we’re using chicken thighs! They crisp up to be crunchy, juicy, and full of flavor – a perfect addition to zesty mojo chicken vegetables!

Making Chicken thighs can sometimes be a bit of work – to make sure the skin crisps up just right, and doesn’t become overly soggy- but this recipe gets super flavorful, deliciously crispy chicken thighs with totally crave-able mojo flavors with very little work!

It really is as easy as marinating, and then adding ingredients to a sheet pan – this is one dinner you can’t mess up!

I prefer to make my own mojo marinade because it is easier, but you can use GOYA’s Mojo Marinade if you want to skip an extra step!

Just look how crispy and juicy that chicken is! I promise this is one recipe you won’t be able to get enough of!!

Hot tip: I used chicken thighs in this recipe, but you can sub out chicken breasts too!

You’ll want to skip the broiler step, and fold the chicken and vegetables into a pouch to help seal in the moisture since you won’t have crispy chicken skin.

Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 2 lb chicken thighs
  • 1 cup mojo marinade
  • 1 large onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced into thin strips
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl or ziploc bag, add chicken and marinade and let marinate 2 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and place sheet pan lined with aluminum foil in oven.
  3. Remove chicken and pat dry with a paper towel.
  4. Add sliced vegetables to marinade.
  5. Place chicken, fat side down, onto hot sheet pan lined with aluminum foil.
  6. Cook for 25 minutes, until fat starts to render.
  7. Flip chicken so fat side is up, and add vegetables to pan with marinade.
  8. Cook another 20 minutes, until internal temp reaches 155 degrees, and turn broiler to high (make sure chicken is on middle rack, it is easier to prevent burning this way)
  9. Let broil 3-6 minutes, until chicken skin is extra crispy and crunchy - watch CLOSELY so vegetables don't burn!
  10. If mojo marinade has largely evaporated, you can add more during the cooking process - just ¼ cup at a time, so your chicken doesn't boil in the extra marinade.
