Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas

A SUPER EASY and flavorful idea to get a protein packed meal on the table that everyone will LOVE!

Serve tucked inside a small whole wheat or Ezekiel tortilla, OR scoop it all into a crisp lettuce leaf, or on top of a big Salad…YUM!

Weeknight 20-minute meal idea. OR Quick delicious Meal Prep idea!

Yes. Keep this recipe handy because you’ll use it a lot!

Feel free to mix up the veggies to use whatever you have on hand and what you personally love!

We eat chicken a few times each week, so it’s important to have an abundance of DELICIOUS recipes.

➡️ What’s really in those seasoning packets?!👀

I love to mix up my own seasonings with organic spices because those little packets of taco seasoning are often made with canola and soybean oils linked to inflammation, sugar, anti-caking agents, and natural flavors. Not to mention, making my own taco seasonings actually tastes WAY better, too!

BEST Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

You’ll never purchase those store-bought packets again after making it yourself!!
So simple, delicious, and lasts for several months – so double or triple this recipe and keep it handy in a small glass container near your stove.


  • 2 Tbsps chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tsps ground cumin
  • 2 tsps sea salt
  • 2 tsps ground black pepper

Instructions for taco seasonings:

In a small mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients until combined well. Store in an airtight container.

To use your homemade spice mix in recipes, start with a smaller sprinkle – taste test to decide the amount of spice for your family’s taste. Usually, 2 Tablespoons per pound of meat is perfect.

Serving suggestion:

I’ll often serve these over a big salad for a quick lunch. Fajita chicken salad is so good!
I also love this Chicken Fajita mixture served over cooked brown rice, cauliflower rice, or scooped into a tortilla or crisp lettuce leaf.

Choosing a tortilla:

First up, choose the best tortilla you can get your hands on, which fits your particular nutritional needs.

Ezekiel, Food for Life, and Siete brands all make varieties that I love!

Always read through the ingredients. They should be simple and self-explanatory.

Often these healthier tortillas have a better taste and texture once heated up a bit.

4 servings


  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, tenders, or breasts, sliced into ¼″ thick strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 large zucchini, cut into sticks
  • 1 red onion, sliced into half moons
  • 2 Tbsps homemade taco seasoning (recipe above)
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
  • juice and zest of 1 fresh lemon or lime


Place your sliced chicken and veggies into a large bowl.

Sprinkle with the taco seasoning then drizzle with your oil and lime juice and zest.

Stir well to season each piece.

Preheat your air fryer to 390 degrees f. for 4 minutes.

Transfer the fajita mixture to the basket of your preheated air fryer and cook for 15-18 minutes until chicken is cooked through, shaking the basket halfway.

Garnish with sliced green onions and enjoy.
