If you’ve got an air fryer, you’ve got a valuable piece of equipment to help you make some of the most delicious meals, including these Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas.  If you love fajitas, follow this recipe to make them at home instead of buying them from a restaurant.

Why Use the Air Fryer?

If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for flavorful recipes to make that won’t require too much effort. Using the air fryer makes it possible to prepare the chicken in this recipe with ease.

You’ll season it to perfection, toss it in your air fryer, and allow it to cook for about 12-15 minutes, or until your chicken is fully cooked. The air fryer speeds up the process, allowing you to have food on the table for your family in no time!

Try Something Different

When you’re tired of the same foods all the time, it makes sense to go on the hunt for new, tasty recipes that aren’t hard to follow and prepare.

Try something new with this recipe for simple yet delicious air fryer chicken fajitas. You’ll use thin-sliced chicken breasts, fajita dry seasoning, salsa, sliced peppers, and a few other ingredients to create the perfect filling for your tortillas.

After you prepare your chicken, consider shredding it with a fork or using a hand mixer to shred it into thin pieces. Add it to your tortillas with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro as a finishing touch.

Serve a Good Drink to Go With Your Fajitas

Whether it’s fajita friday or taco tuesday, you might want to make a good drink that will pair perfectly with your homemade fajitas. Cranberry lime margaritas are the perfect adult-friendly beverage to serve with your fajitas.

You’ll need cranberry juice, lime juice, tequila, caster sugar, and a bit of crushed ice! If you want to make the kids feel included, prepare the beverage without the tequila for them.
