A classic favorite of mine, chicken is pressure cooked in only 5 minutes, while bell peppers and onion are being charred on the grill, creating a deliciously charred and smokey flavor.




  • 4 Frozen Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon fajita seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Onion, quartered
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (affiliate)


  • 2 Bell Peppers (I used Red and Yellow)
  • 1 Large Red Onion, quartered
  • 4 Large Tortillas
  • **Toppings: Shredded Cheese, Salsa (affiliate), Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt, Chopped Cilantro, Shredded Romaine


  1. Place frozen chicken breasts in pressure cooker and sprinkle with fajita seasoning and salt and pepper. Add quartered onion and whole garlic cloves then cover with chicken broth.
  2. Lock lid and set to high pressure for 5 minutes with a natural pressure release. If any pressure remains after a 10 minute natural release, do a quick release to release the rest of the pressure.
  3. While chicken is cooking, grill whole bell peppers and quartered red onion, rotating until each side is charred and soft. **If you don’t have a grill, you can use a cast iron skillet on the stove.
  4. Shred cooked chicken and spoon into tortilla then top with charred veggies and other desired toppings.
