¾cupchicken broth or water
Turn the Instant Pot to SAUTE. Add the olive oil and once the oil is heated up a bit, add the chicken slices and sauté the chicken just until it's brown on all sides.
Add the onions and garlic, sauté for one minute, just until they are soft, translucent and fragrant. If there are brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pot, pour in a little chicken broth or water and use a wooden spoon to gently deglaze the pot by scraping up any brown bits. Hit CANCEL to stop the sauté mode.
Add all of the sliced bell peppers on top of the chicken. Add the fajita seasoning, and pour in the chicken broth or water. Then, without stirring the ingredients, secure the Instant Pot lid. Make sure the pressure release valve is set to SEALING.
Press PRESSURE COOK (or MANUAL) and cook on high for 6 minutes. Once cooking is complete, do a Quick Release. Once all of the pressure has been released and the pressure release valve is all the way down, carefully open the lid.
You may have some excess broth or water. Simply drain out excess liquid if necessary. Then serve the chicken fajitas in tortilla shells, over rice or a salad.
Instant Pot: I use either my 8-quart Instant Pot Duo or my 8-quart Ninja Foodi Deluxe XL multicooker to make these chicken fajitas. You can use any 6 or 8 quart electric pressure cooker that you have. Do NOT attempt to make this recipe in a smaller, 3-quart Instant Pot.Fajita seasoning: you can make your own fajita seasoning using my homemade fajita seasoning recipe. Or, use any store-bought fajita seasoning. You could even use taco seasoning in a pinch! Make ahead: you can slice the chicken the night before, then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also slice the bell peppers the night before and store in a separate airtight container.Meal plan: This is a great recipe for meal planning. Cook the chicken fajitas completely, then divide into separate food containers. Add tortillas, rice, or salad greens to each container. Allow the chicken fajitas to cool completely before placing the lids on the containers. Store in the refrigerator to enjoy for the week ahead!Storage: Allow to cool completely, then store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
