Crock Pot, Recipe

Want a tasty and simple dinner that you can toss in your slow cooker?

These Crockpot chicken fajitas are incredibly easy to make. Cooking them in the slow cooker results in tender and flavorful chicken. With a twenty-minute prep time, they’re quick and versatile – you can serve them in lettuce wraps or as a rice bowl if you don’t have tortilla shells.

This method is also ideal for busy weeknights when you need a fuss-free dinner option.  This simplified recipe eliminates the need to marinate and sauté veggies and chicken in batches. Instead, the slow cooker takes care of everything, leaving you with minimal effort. Toss everything into the crockpot and let it do the work for you.

Cooking the fajitas in the slow cooker allows the flavors to meld together and ensures perfectly tender chicken every time. It’s a delicious, family-friendly meal that makes plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.
