Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place the 3 chicken breasts into the bottom of your inner pot inside your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
  • Slice up the peppers into strips and remove the seeds and the stalks.
  • Place the tinned tomatoes, peppers and ½ of the Cajun seasoning into the Instant Pot.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 6 minutes on manual.
  • Use quick pressure release (QPR) to quickly remove pressure. Remove the lid and drain the excess liquid.
  • Remove the chicken breasts and using a knife and fork shred them.
  • Place all the ingredients on a large plate, season them with the other half of your ¼ seasoning and serve in wraps with toppings of your choice.

Notes

If you are on Weight Watchers, Slimming World or another calorie controlled diet then I would recommend using the Weight Watchers Wraps. If not, use my homemade version that are delicious but not super low in calories!!! If you are using smaller chicken breasts, then I would recommend setting the time to 5 minutes instead of 6.
When we were recipe testing we tried 5 minutes with our large breasts and they were slightly pink in the middle. The Cajun rub comes in 1.25oz/35g. This is enough for 4 rounds of Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas. We found that one small can of tinned tomatoes is enough to make this recipe. Or half a can of a big one.
We have found the best place to source chicken breasts to make Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas is from ButcherBox. You even receive free bacon and $10 off your first order when you sign up with this link.
