  2. One entire medium onion, sliced;

  5. Two tablespoons of olive oil

  9. 1/4 tsp black pepper
  10. Corn tortillas or flour, for serving
  11. Extra toppings at your discretion: salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, and sour cream


  • Cut one or two chicken breasts into thin strips to start.
  • For consistent cooking, cut one onion and a variety of red, green, and yellow bell peppers into strips of comparable size.
  • Combine the chicken and veggie strips in a large bowl.
  • Pour over some olive lime juice with oil. This helps the seasoning adhere to the foods while also adding taste.
  • Add the fajita spice, which usually consists of paprika, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Until everything is coated evenly, toss everything.
  • Set your air fryer’s temperature to 400°F, or 200°C.
  • This step helps generate nice char on the chicken and veggies and guarantees that the cooking process begins right away.
  • Fill the air fryer basket with the seasoned chicken and vegetable mixture. Try not to pack the basket too full; if needed, cook in batches.
  • To ensure consistent cooking, air fried for to 10 minutes, shaking the basket or stirring occasionally.
  • Warm your flour or corn tortillas in the oven, on the stove, or even in the microwave while the chicken and veggies are cooking.
  • When rolling, warm tortillas are more flexible and won’t shatter.
  • It’s time to construct the fajitas once the chicken and veggies are cooked through and nicely charred.
  • Remove the chicken with spoon and southwestern mixture over the heated tortillas.
  • Top with your preferred fajita fixings, including salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, sour cream, or fresh cilantro.
  • While everything is still warm, serve your chicken fajitas right away and enjoy!
  • With less oil and the same delicious flavor, this recipe for Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas is a quick, simple, and healthier way to enjoy this traditional dish.
