Slow Cooker Monday: Chicken Fajitas

This is the first slow cooker dish I’ve made with meat where the meat doesn’t need to be browned first. That’s a big plus for me, because if I’m putting dinner together at 6 or 7am, I don’t want to take the extra time to cook the meat first and I also don’t want to make another pan dirty. These chicken fajitas are really simple and will only give you one thing to clean (besides your dinner dishes).

All you need to do is toss chicken, veggies, broth and spices into your Crock Pot and a few hours later you’re all set. Warm up some tortillas, add your favorite toppings and dinner is served!


Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Makes around 3 servings

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced into 1 inch slices
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 lime
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t chili powder
  •  1/2 C chicken stock
  • Tortillas
  • Optional for serving: avocado, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, chopped cilantro, tomatoes

Salt and pepper both sides of chicken slices and place in slow cooker. Add in bell pepper and onion slices. Squeeze lime juice over everything. Combine spices with chicken stock and pour into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

Spoon into warmed tortillas and add desired toppings.

    That looks so amazing! I wonder if you could throw in some rice for some burritos! I love that you can just throw the meat in after slicing it because I hate handling raw chicken.
