Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas
Is there anything better than a sizzling hot cast iron skillet filled with the fixings of fajitas. I love piling warm tortillas with perfectly charred peppers and meat. But you know what I don’t love? Having to heat up my oven when it’s already a billion degrees outside. Enter our favorite friend, the instant pot.
The peppers and onions cook at the same time as the chicken thighs making this super simple and easy. The chicken thighs keep things nice and moist (sorry). But the real game changer here is the foil packet. If you put your peppers and onions in the pot straight with the chicken then they will get verrrryyyyyy soft. And for fajitas, we want them to have a little bit of texture left. Wrapping them in a foil packet keeps them from overcooking without having to cook them separately like some recipes call for. Serve these up simple as is, or pile with all your favorite toppings.
