Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajita

Cooking in the Crockpot is my favorite! Your food comes out so flavorful and tender every time. And hello who doesn’t love dinner with minimal work. . . this mom loves it. Seriously though I could cook everything in my slow cooker and be happy. I was meal prepping and thought this would be a yummy dinner option for the week. Serve it the traditional way on a tortilla or on top of some white or brown rice for a delicious fajita bowl.

We had plenty left over for two more nights of dinner. Score for my meal prepping! You most certainly wont hear me complain about these leftovers; the hubby either. This is one of our favorites.

Cooking on low makes the chicken extremely tender, juicy and so flavorful. I like my chicken shredded but if you prefer it in strips I would suggest cooking on high for 3 hours and cutting into strips. Also if you are not a fan of spice or too much heat add a little less Chili powder.

These fajitas will be leaving you wanting seconds or maybe even thirds.
