Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

These slow cooker chicken fajitas are healthy and tasty, and as the days get longer and warmer we’re spending more time outside and I’m looking to spend less time cooking, and less time with the oven and stove off. Keeping the heat out of the house, the slow cooker is the perfect solution.

How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas:

My favorite part of this meal is the colors of my peppers, and peppers in general. I love them. Slice them to the size perfect for your family. For hubby and I sliced like this is good, but I tend to slice them through the middle for my kids, who can be picky on whether or not they are eating peppers day to day.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Pour some diced tomato over the bottom of your slow cooker, layer some peppers over the tomato and top with your chicken breasts. Season the tops of your chicken.

Add remaining tomato and peppers.

Cook on low for 6-7 hours.

Shred or slice your chicken.

Remove 1- 1 -1/2 cups of the liquid, the juice from the tomato and peppers cooking. Mix together the lime juice and honey, then add to your slow cooker. Put your chicken back in.

Mix carefully then serve how you’d like.

Chicken fajitas are great on warm tortilla shells. But its also great the next day if you have leftovers but run out of shells, you can serve it over rice or pasta, or just eat it the way it is.
