    4 servings

  • Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, cut into 4 slices
  • Optional toppings: salsa, sour cream, minced fresh cilantro, jalapeno slices and guacamole
  • Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 375°. Using a sharp knife, cut a slit, 1/2 in. deep, down center of each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way though. In a small bowl, combine olive oil and seasonings; rub over chicken. Fill opening with onion and green pepper.
  • Working in batches if needed, place chicken in greased air-fryer basket. Cook 6 minutes; top chicken with cheese slices. Continue to cook until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads at least 165°, 6-8 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining chicken. If desired, serve with optional toppings.
