Fajita-Stuffed Chicken Breast

Ingredients
  

  • 2 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 medium white onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions
 

  • Slice each chicken breast completely in half lengthwise into two even pieces. Using a meat tenderizer, pound out the chicken until it’s about 1/4" thick.
  • Lay each slice of chicken out and place three slices of onion and four slices of green pepper on end closest to you. Begin rolling the peppers and onions tightly into the chicken. Secure the roll with either toothpicks or a couple of pieces of butcher’s twine.
  • Drizzle coconut oil over chicken. Sprinkle each side with chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Place each roll into the air fryer basket.
  • Adjust the temperature to 350°F and set the timer for 25 minutes.
