Instant Pot Fajitas Salad
It’s not always fun to eat light and healthy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t taste great while doing it. At least, that’s our philosophy! The idea for this recipe came during a season while eating a Whole30 diet. So we took one of our favorite foods and put it on top of a salad! These Instant Pot fajitas chicken and veggies are everything! The chicken is seasoned perfectly and the veggies are crisp tender and not overcooked. I’m pretty sure we’ll be eating this later in the year topped with cheese and sour cream, rolled in a flour tortilla!

- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder

- 1 cup yellow onions cut with the grain into strips

- 1/2 cup chicken broth
Add all spices to bowl and mix together. Remove 1 1/2 teaspoons of spice blend and set aside.
Add thinly sliced chicken to Ziplock bag and add 2 tablespoons of oil, lime juice, and remaining spices. Mix well to coat chicken and marinate in refrigerator for at least one hour.
Using sauté setting… once hot, add 2 tablespoons of oil, peppers, onions, and scallions. Add reserved 1 1/2 teaspoons of spice blend, mix well, and sauté for about 5 minutes. Do not overcook, they should still have a little texture. Remove and set aside.
Do not rinse or wipe pot. Add chicken broth and chicken with marinade. Lock lid and cook for 10 minutes at high pressure. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Drain off excess liquid and serve chicken in the fajita style of your choice.

At the time we posted this recipe, we were eating a Whole30 diet, so we added the chicken and veggies to a salad. But you could totally add them to tortillas with cheese and sour cream, if you like. There are no rules!
