Fajita Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Fajita Stuffed Chicken Recipe

I had all the ingredients for fajitas, but instead of heating up my big oven I decided to try out the air fryer. Since mine is a small one, I wanted to get as much filling as I could in each stuffed chicken breast. This worked nicely by cutting slits in the breasts and then filling them.

Ingredients :
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
1/2 medium green pepper, thinly sliced
4 ounces cheddar cheese, cut into 4 slices
Optional: salsa, sour cream, minced fresh cilantro, jalapeno slices and guacamole

Preheat air fryer to 375°. Using a sharp knife, cut a slit, 1/2 in. deep, down center of each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way though. In a small bowl, combine olive oil and seasonings; rub over chicken. Fill opening with onion and green pepper.
In batches, place chicken on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook 6 minutes; top chicken with cheese slices. Cook until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads at least 165°, 6-8 minutes longer. If desired, serve with toppings of your choice.
