Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 3-4 breasts)
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes (or use fresh diced tomatoes)
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced (I used 1 yellow, 1 red and 1 orange)
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  • Place the chicken breasts at the bottom of the slow cooker. Then add the fajita seasoning, diced tomatoes, sliced peppers, onion, garlic and lime juice on top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours. Once chicken is cooked through, remove and shred with a fork or knife.
  • Add the shredded chicken back to the slow cooker and stir.
  • Serve immediately with toppings of choice.

Notes

  • Serving suggestions: fresh cilantro, pico de gallo, guacamole, rice, tortillas
