Chicken Fajitas Air Fryer
So many of us have gotten used to making our traditional dinner dishes in the air fryer, but have you ever made air fryer fajitas before?
What Are Fajitas?
Fajitas are usually served in a corn tortilla and traditionally include strips of grilled meat with colorful grilled peppers.
From that basic formula, you'll often find a huge variety of different ways to cook and serve them. You'll find steak, chicken, and pork fajitas. There are spicy fajitas and fajitas without much kick.
In this recipe, I tried to stick to the familiar combination of strips of chicken with peppers, and topped them with tomatoes and cilantro.
Why You'll Love Making Chicken Fajitas In The Air Fryer
One of my favorite menu items at our local sports bar are their Tequila Lime Steak Fajitas - and I am TOTALLY going to try making this air fryer fajitas recipe again, but using a tequila lime marinade!
Not only does this recipe taste like something you would order at your favorite Tex-Mex restaurant, but it's super fast and super easy, too. The air fryer does all the work. You just sit back and wait.
After you make these fajitas, use your air fryer to make some garlic parm chicken wings. They are another sports-bar favorite!Jump to Recipe

Rinse the chicken breast fillet and pat it dry. Cut the breast into thin strips and put them into a bowl.
Add together your olive oil, salt and all spices to your bowl.
Mix this up well so that all of the chicken is coated! You should leave for half an hour in the refrigerator, just make sure to cover the bowl with cling film.
Cut the bell pepper and peeled shallot into thin strips and put them into the bowl with the chicken breast.
Don't forget to stir the chicken breast strips with the vegetables so that everything is evenly coated.
Transfer the cut up chicken, peppers and onions mixture to your air fryer basket and arrange them in a single layer. Cook for 12 minutes at 400F.
Flip the chicken and vegetables to the other side and cook for another 8 minutes at 400F.
Finely chop the tomatoes and parsley.
Divide the filling over the tortillas. Place them in the air fryer basket and fry at 390F for another 4 minutes.
Add the chopped tomatoes and parsley to the tortillas and serve the fajitas immediately!
Drizzle evenly with your lime juice for the best flavor profile! If you haven't been dressing your fajitas with lime, what are you even doing with your life?!
