I know you’re no stranger to this, but easy crockpot meals are just the way we do life here.
- In the summer, when life is crazy and the oven heats up the house too much.
- In the winter, when we love how the smell and coziness of a slow cooker dinner cooking away all day.
- On a busy weeknight, when you have 5 minutes to throw something in the slow cooker before the kids burst in the door, or during the baby’s nap time, or for your family on your way out of the house for the night shift.
We have many favorite slow cooker meals here, and these fajitas are just the tip of the iceberg.
And this Slow Cooker Chicken Breast is so ridiculously flavorful and juicy thanks to one special ingredient 😉
- They’re easy — even with the homemade fajita seasoning, they only take a few minutes to get in the crockpot and you can prep the veggies and the seasoning blend in advance.
- They’re healthy — we’ve got loads of veggies, lean protein, homemade spice blend, and salsa.
- They’re loaded with flavor — we’ll get to that homemade spice blend later.
- They’re multi-purpose — got leftovers? Make a chicken taco salad the next day for lunch, or fry up some quesadillas, or use it to top a pizza. The options are endless!
- Pour the chicken broth into your crockpot and add your chicken breasts. Season well with the homemade fajita seasoning
- Add your vegetables and sprinkle with remaining seasoning
- Top with your salsa — try to spread it in a thin even layer to keep everything moist.
- Cover and cook — the exact time will depend on your preferences and how how your slow cooker cooks. I’ve found 4 hours on low to be lots, and you could also cook for 2 hours on high. If you need to leave it longer, be sure that your slow cooker switches to keep warm once the cook time is over.
The nice thing Chicken Fajitas is that most of the things we like to serve them with can be completely prepped ahead. Here are some of our favorite things to serve with these Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas!
