Crockpot Chicken Fajitas are an easy, weeknight slow cooker dinner that comes together with just a few simple ingredients! Chicken breasts are tossed in crockpot with sliced peppers and spices to create this mouthwatering dish!
Crockpot recipes are a lifesaver around here, regardless of whether it’s busy school weeknights or the middle of summer holiday chaos. Turning a traditional chicken fajita recipe into a slow cooker meal is great for busy weeknights and a favorite with the whole family!
How to Make Crockpot Chicken Fajitas:
Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas are a dump and go recipe. Once everything is in the pot, they just hang out until they’re done, and you really don’t have to do anything to serve them.
- Add chicken breasts and broth to crockpot. Season well with homemade chicken fajita seasoning (see recipe below).
- Add vegetables and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.
- Spread salsa on top in a thin even layer to keep everything moist.
- Cover and cook.
When it comes to cooking, the exact time will depend on your preferences and 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 it warm once the cooking time is over.
Can I Make These Chicken Fajitas on the Stovetop?
Yes! You can easily make these fajitas on the stove if you don’t have a slow cooker. Or while the weather is still nice, try making grilled chicken fajitas on the barbecue! Or try fajitas in the oven!
Simply add all of your ingredients to a large saucepan with a lid, bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15-20 minutes until your chicken breasts reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F.
Let chicken breasts rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes before slicing.
What to Serve With These Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas:
