Best Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas

When it comes to fajitas, I consider myself somewhat of an expert. I have a deep love for all versions of fajitas (check out this Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajita recipe!) and especially enjoy making them at home. They are tasty, nutritious, and of course made extra good with plenty of fresh salsa and guacamole. This Air Fryer method is my new favorite for making chicken fajitas because it is SO simple and quick but I also love this sheet pan version as well!

Made with very little oil and a homemade fajita seasoning blend, these Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas are a healthy meal that the whole family will enjoy. The air fryer simultaneously produces perfectly juicy chicken and slightly crispy peppers and onions! Best of all, they are ready in about 20 minutes and require minimal clean up!

When chicken reaches 165 degrees, it is considered done and safe to eat.

What goes well with chicken fajitas?

Rice, Pico de Gallo, refried beans, and Homemade Salsa are all great options for serving alongside chicken fajitas.
