Instant Pot Keto Chicken Fajita Bowls
This keto-approved take on fajitas is a super satisfying low-carb meal. The chicken shreds off the bone easily, while the veggies have a slight crunch and the broth is light and flavorful. It feels indulgent, but you’re not breaking any rules.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 pounds bone-in, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup chicken stock Cooked cauliflower rice
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1½ ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded (about ⅓ cup)
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 avocado, diced Hot sauce
  1. Set Instant Pot to “sauté” and allow it to preheat for 3 minutes. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil until hot. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic; stir and arrange in an even layer. Cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned around the edges, about 3 minutes. Stir, and continue to cook until tender and golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer onion mixture to a plate.
  2. Stir together salt, chili powder, cumin, and pepper; sprinkle most of the spice mixture evenly on the meaty side of chicken breasts. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pot. Place chicken, spice side down, in hot oil, and sear 3 minutes. Sprinkle bone side of chicken with remaining spice mix; flip. Add stock; cover and press cancel. Set cooker to high pressure for 10 minutes.
  3. Carefully release pressure and remove lid. Press “cancel”. Transfer chicken to a platter; shred chicken and discard bones. Place shredded chicken and onion mixture in hot liquid. Serve fajita mixture over cauliflower rice; top with tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, avocado, and hot sauce.
