Chicken fajitas in the air fryer doesn’t get any easier than this. The chicken stays nice and moist while the vegetables have a nice crisp to them. Add 2 minutes of cook time if you prefer softer veggies. I like to toast my tortillas in the air fryer as well but it is not necessary. Serve with toppings of your choice such as salsa, sliced avocado, and cheese.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 large onion, sliced into petals
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound chicken tenders, cut into strips
  • 2 teaspoons fajita seasoning
  • 8 (6 inch) flour tortillas, warmed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place bell pepper strips and onion petals in a large bowl. Drizzle 2 teaspoons of olive oil over the top and season with salt and pepper. Stir until evenly combined.
  2. 2 Place chicken strips in a separate bowl and sprinkle with fajita seasoning. Drizzle with remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and mix until evenly combined with your hands.
  3. 3 Preheat an air fryer to to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Add chicken to the basket and cook for 12 minutes, shaking halfway through cook time. Transfer to a plate to let rest while you cook the vegetables.
  4. 4 Add vegetable mixture to the basket of the air fryer and cook for 14 minutes, shaking halfway through cook time.
  5. 5 Divide chicken and vegetable mixture among tortillas.

  1. Perfect fajitas, no mess. The chicken was at 165°F exactly at 12 minutes, tender and juicy. Instead of cooking in two batches, I put the veggies on bottom, layered the chicken on top and cooked for 12 minutes. Everything was cooked to perfection.
