What You'll Need To Make Tender Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas
Even though I buy fajita seasoning at the store, you can easily make your own fajita seasoning as well. Don't forget that this recipe is versatile and simple to make so you can easily swap out ingredients and make what you love.
- 4 large chicken breasts
- 4 bell peppers
- 1 large onion
- 1 pack of fajita seasoning
- ½ cup of water
This is seriously one of the best instant pot chicken recipes that you'll ever make. So tender!
Add more ingredients- The great thing about cooking with boneless skinless chicken breast is that it's versatile to other additions. You can add in red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, diced tomatoes, and more. Adding more ingredients will be adding more calories and fiber.
Change up how you serve - While you can use corn tortillas or flour tortillas for this taco recipe, you can also add it to a bowl with rice or enjoy it any other way that the whole family will love.
Some people like to add more seasonings as well such as onion powder, paprika, and more.
You can also use skinless chicken thighs for this recipe but be careful of the bones in the meat. You'll want to cook it separately and remove the bones before shredding and eating. (This is why I don't use thigh meat for my recipes - I don't want to do those extra steps!) This adds a lot of time to the prep time and total time cooked.
What are the best toppings for Instant Pot Chicken fajitas?
Adding the toppings to these Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas is the best! You can add cheese, avocado, guacamole, salsa, chili powder, a dash of garlic powder, or cumin, and don't forget a squeeze of lime juice on top!
How to store leftover Instant Pot Chicken fajitas
The thin strips of chicken covered with homemade fajita seasoning can be stored easily in the fridge to enjoy again. You need to store the chicken and vegetables in an airtight container with a lid.
When it's time to reheat, you can warm it back up in the Instant Pot or microwave.
My Easy One-Pot Chicken Fajitas was a hit at dinner, even with the 6-year-old, who seems to hate everything lately, and the bigs raved about it.
This was my first time making fajitas like this, I have had my pressure cooker for about 2 months or so, and I refuse to use the stove. So I decided to give it a shot, and as I said they turned out amazing!
