Slow Cooker Monday: Chicken Fajitas
Sunday, 20 March 2011
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!
