Who knew you could use the air fryer to make chicken fajitas for dinner?
Serve with tortillas (or over rice or lettuce) and with any desired toppings – such as salsa or sour cream.

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne


  1. Combine the sliced chicken and vegetables in a bowl.
  2. Add the olive oil, chili powder, salt, cumin, pepper, and cayenne.
  3. Toss to combine and pour the contents out into the tray of an air fryer.
  4. Slide the tray into the air fryer and cook at 360°F for 16-20 minutes, checking and stirring halfway through.
  5. Once the fajitas have finished cooking, serve them in tortillas, over rice, or over a salad with desired toppings.
