Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas

I am in love with my air fryer! I literally use it all the time so it has a permanent spot on my kitchen counter. I would definitely recommend getting one if you don't have one already! Best investment ever! Lately, I have been making these air fryer chicken fajitas as a quick and easy lean and green meal and they are delicious!

Start off by seasoning the chicken breast strips and peppers with salt, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and lime juice or you could use fajita seasoning. Then throw everything in the air fryer. Air fry at 400 degrees for 14 to 15 min or until done, stirring halfway through. That is it! Dinner is done in less than 20 min!

Divide the cooked chicken and peppers into two equal portions and serve with your favorite healthy fat. I had this as a yummy fajita salad with light ranch salad dressing, while my husband had his as lettuce wraps with guacamole. Delish!

Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas

1 lb chicken breasts, cut into thin strips (2 Leaner)
1/2 tsp salt (2 Condiments)
1/2 tsp chili powder (1 Condiment)
1 tsp cumin (1 Condiment)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1/2 Condiment)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice (1 1/2 Condiments)
3 sweet bell peppers cut into strips ~ 408 g cooked weight (6 Greens)

Combine chicken, seasonings, and lime juice in a medium sized bowl.
Add peppers with the chicken, stirring until combined.
Spray air fryer with non-stick cooking spray.
Place chicken and peppers in the air fryer.
Air fry at 400 degrees for 14 to 15 min, stirring halfway through.
Divide into two equal portions.

Makes 2 Servings
Each Serving provides:
1 Leaner, 3 Greens, and 3 Condiments

1 Serving is 6 ounces of cooked chicken with 204 g cooked peppers. Serve with 1 additional Healthy Fat such as 2 tbsp of an approved salad dressing, 2 tbsp guacamole, 1.5 oz avocado, or 2 tbsp sour cream


* You can use 2 1/2 tsp of fajita seasoning (4 1/2 Condiments) instead of the seasonings.

** If you prefer to bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 25 to 30 min or until chicken is cooked through.

*** You can air fry the peppers separately from the chicken if you desire. This would be a great idea if you wanted to add other veggies to your Lean and Green rather than just peppers. If you would like to add lettuce to make a salad or wraps, decrease the peppers to 4 instead of 6. Add 1 cup (72 g) of iceberg lettuce to each serving.
