Ingredients

Fajita Ingredients:

  • 1 pound chicken breasts about 2 large, sliced ¼” thick
  • 2 bell peppers cut in ¼” strips - green, red or yellow
  • 1 large red onion cut in ¼” strips
  • 2 tablespoons oil vegetable or avocado
  • 1 packet Fajita or Taco Seasoning mix

Optional Serving Ingredients:

  • Tortillas - corn or flour
  • Lime wedges
  • Cilantro
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Avocado
  • Over rice as a bowl
  • Over lettuce as a salad
  • Large lettuce leaves for a low carb option

Instructions

  • Pre-heat air fryer to 390 degrees F. Lightly spray the basket.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the sliced chicken, peppers and onions.
  • Pour oil over chicken and veggies and sprinkle with seasoning. Mix until coated.
  • Pour chicken/veggie mix into the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 12-15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked (165 degrees). Toss at the halfway point to break up any clumps.

Notes

  • It's important to cut the veggies and chicken to a similar size so they will cook evenly.
  • Don't overfill the basket. You may need to cook in 2 batches depending on the size of your basket.
