Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Ingredients:

  2. Marinate the Chicken and Vegetables:
    • In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, chili powder, ground cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to form a marinade.
    • Add the sliced chicken, bell peppers, and onion to the bowl. Toss to coat all the ingredients evenly with the marinade. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes for the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  4. Cook the Fajitas:
    • Place the marinated chicken, bell peppers, and onion in the air fryer basket in an even layer. You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
    • Air fry at 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender and slightly charred.
  5. Serve:
    • Once cooked, transfer the chicken and vegetables to a serving platter.
    • Squeeze fresh lime juice over the top and garnish with chopped fresh cilantro.
    • Serve the chicken fajitas with warm tortillas and your favorite toppings, such as sour cream, guacamole, shredded cheese, salsa, or pico de gallo.
