Written by The Protein Chef

Guess what? Today is the day we finally get the recipe ball rolling with a new slow cooker recipe! Super simple Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas that only need a few ingredients and take just a few minutes to prep…

First you’ll need a slow cooker and then optional liner to make cleanup even easier. Next you’ll need your vegetables. You can chop up some fresh bell peppers and an onion or keep it simple and just buy a bag of frozen fajita vegetables. Dump half of your vegetables into your slow cooker then follow with 3 pounds of fat trimmed chicken breast, 1/2 packet of fajita or taco seasoning mix, an ounce of lime juice, tablespoon of honey, tablespoon of minced garlic, can of diced tomatoes, and the other half of your fajita vegetables. Lightly mix those up and throw your slow cooker on high for 3 hours. After 3 hours your chicken breast should be ready to shred so go ahead and do that then continue cooking on low heat for an hour.
