If you’re looking to spice up your Taco Tuesday or prep quick and easy weeknight fajitas, then your air fryer is about to be your best friend. Rather than hovering over the skillet for twenty minutes, cook your frozen chicken fajita filling in the air fryer.
Chicken Fajita Filling in the Air Fryer is Easy
Okay, so I’ll admit that it doesn’t take all that much effort to prep frozen fajita filling on the stove top. However, unlike cooking fajita mix in a skillet, there is no need to continually check or or hover over the stove when doing your prep in the air fryer. Plus, clean up is simple. Just rinse in hot soapy water, or let the dishwasher do the job for you, rather than having to get your hands dirty.
The Texture is better in the Air Fryer
The texture will be better as well. As the chicken and veggies thaw, all the water drops into the bottom of the air fryer, which yields a crisp juicy texture. On the stove top, the ingredients will simmer in water, leaving your filling soggy and limp. Whether you’re using the filling for chicken and veggie tacos or having a fajita night, your family will be pleased with the crisp veggies and evenly cooked chicken that won’t hold water. There’s nothing worse than a soggy taco shell or flour tortilla.
So if you’re pressed for time on a busy weeknight, frozen fajita filling in the air fryer is an optimal choice that your family will love. With all the time you’ll save on this easy meal, you’ll have more time to spend with your family and friends.
Cook from frozen at 400 for around 8 minutes.
