Air-fryer Cajun Chicken Fajitas

This recipe works with a variety of vegetables like peppers, onions, mushrooms, courgette, broccoli etc. and you can use beef instead of chicken. This can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge for when you are ready to pop in the air-fryer for dinner; or can be made and reheated the next day. If you don’t have an air-fryer, just fry the chicken and veg in a pan instead.
