  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

For Serving:

  • Flour tortillas
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped


  • Prepare the Chicken Marinade:
    • In a bowl, mix together olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add the sliced chicken and coat it evenly with the marinade. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  • Prepare the Fajita Vegetables:
    • In a separate bowl, toss the sliced bell peppers and onions with olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder until well coated.
  • Air Fry the Chicken and Vegetables:
    • Place the marinated chicken in the Eazy MealZ Air fryer basket in order for a crispy finish, spreading it out evenly. Cook for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket or turning the chicken halfway through, until the chicken is cooked through and has a slight char.
    • While the chicken is cooking, place the seasoned vegetables in the air fryer basket or on a tray. Air fry for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket or stirring the vegetables halfway through, until they are tender and slightly caramelized.
  • Assemble the Fajitas:
    • Warm the flour tortillas. Spoon the cooked chicken and vegetables onto the tortillas.
