Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas

Hey everyone!!,

Ok, have you jumped on the Air Fryer train yet? If you haven’t yet, now is your chance!!!!

I recently purchased one and I’m OBSESSED!!! I’ve been telling everyone that my Air Fryer is the perfect partner for my Instant Pot! Haha!

If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot feel free to check out my opinions on them: https://fromarvadawithlove.com/2017/07/25/instant-pot-101-tips-tricks-and-must-have-accessories/

As for the air fryer, I love how it works! It is perfect for so many things, including these simple Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas. We also loved these Air Fryer Chicken Tenders with Air Fryer French Fries. (You’ll never make french fries another way, I promise.) It is also a healthier alternative to frying with oil.

Not only does the air fryer cook food quickly and efficiently, it can bake, roast, grill or fry pretty much anything you can think of.

There are several different brands and sizes available which makes choosing the perfect one for you, that much easier. I have added the top 4 selling Air Fryers on Amazon right now, including the Ninja Air Fryer, which is the one I used for this recipe.

These Chicken Fajitas only have 6 ingredients and are SO simple to make. Let’s get started!

Start by chopping the onion and bell peppers into strips, then mince the garlic. 

Slice chicken into strips and remove fat.

Toss Chicken with bell peppers, onions, garlic, olive oil and taco/fajita seasoning. 


Preheat Air Fryer at 375 degrees for at least 3 minutes before adding the chicken and fajita veggies.



Cook the chicken fajitas at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Make sure to stir the food every 5 minutes to ensure that it cooks evenly. 

Serve in your favorite tortilla or try these homemade tortillas!

Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
