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.

  • 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.  

  • 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.
