Quick, easy, and everyone in the house loves it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This fajita recipe is such a time saver. Put all the ingredients in a slow cooker, turn it on, and forget about it. The chicken turns out tender and easy to shred. Once shredded, it goes back into the Crock Pot to mingle with the sauce. Spooned onto the tortillas, it makes really flavorful fajitas. These will be great if you're serving a crowd. Set up a fajita bar with the chicken and toppings and let everyone create their own. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

Test Kitchen Tips
Every slow cooker is different. We suggest checking the chicken after 5 hours since some cook faster. Also, serve the chicken with a slotted spoon to remove the juices before placing it on the tortilla.

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and chop onion.
  2. Remove core and seeds from bell pepper and chop it.
  3. Put onion and pepper in the bottom of Crock Pot.
  4. Add green chilies.
  5. Arrange chicken breasts on top of vegetables.
  6. Sprinkle fajita seasoning over the chicken.
  7. Top with one can of mild green enchilada sauce.
  8. Place lid over Crock Pot. Turn on high and let cook for approximately 6 hours.
  9. Remove chicken breasts from Crock Pot and shred them.
  10. Add chicken back to vegetables and mix all together.
  11. Serve on warmed flour tortillas, with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and whatever else you like.
