Ahh fajitas, the sizzling entree that catches everyones attention in the dining room at any restaurant. It’s an entree worthy of some attention with its bright well season flavors. I always love to order fajitas at Mexican restaurants but I don’t make them at home often. I just wanted a lazier way to make them without having to marinade and so forth, so today I’m sharing this incredibly easy to prepare version of fajitas. So easy that the slow cooker does almost all the work. And not only that, cooking it in the slow cooker allows plenty of time to meld the flavors together and really sink into the chicken, and it leaves you with perfectly tender chicken every time.
Also, I have some exciting news! I’ve been wanting to launch my own online kitchen shop for years and with the help of my dedicated husband and a few friends I finally have!!! I would love you guys to check it out (HERE)! A few of my favorites are the vanilla beans (duh!) and the herb savor (I’d gotten so tired of throwing out herbs so quickly and have finally found a solution). We searched for the highest quality vanilla beans and want to sell them at the best price. They are Grade A Gold Vanilla Beans (also certified organic and gluten-free) and trust me you’ll have a very hard time finding anything better! They are so plump and you will definitely be getting your moneys worth! There aren’t a lot of products yet, as it hopefully grows then I will continue to add more products all the time. I’d love your support so please check it out and see if there’s anything you’d like! No pressure though :). I value your readership so much and never want to push anything on you, I only want to share the products I like with you.
From here on out this is going to be my go to fajita recipe! Flavorful, simple and definitely a crowd pleasing meal! It makes plenty too so you may be lucky enough to have left overs for lunch the next day!
Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Yield: About 9 fajitas
Pour half of the canned tomatoes into the bottom of a slow cooker and spread into an even layer. Top with half of the peppers and half of the onions. Sprinkle garlic in. Top with chicken breasts.
In a bowl whisk together chili powder, cumin, paprika, coriander, salt and pepper. Evenly sprinkle half of the seasoning over chicken breasts then flip chicken and sprinkle in remainder. Top with remaining half of the tomatoes, then layer in remaining peppers and onions.
Cover and cook on HIGH heat 3 – 4 hours or low heat 6 – 8 hours, until chicken has cooked through and veggies are tender (note that if you want to be able to cut chicken into strips cook more near lesser time on HIGH or LOW, otherwise it will probably just shred, which is also fine).
Remove chicken, and cut into strips, or shred. Ladle out 1 cup of the broth in slow cooker (mostly tomato liquid) and discard. In a small bowl whisk together lime juice and honey and add to slow cooker along with chicken and season with additional salt to taste if desired. Gently toss. Sere warm in warmed tortillas with sour cream and optional guacamole, cheese and salsa.

It really doesn’t get much easier than this! Simply add 4 ingredients plus some seasoning to the slow cooker and you have a fuss free meal option your whole family will love.
Now close your eyes and imagine yourself at a fancy Mexican restaurant, hear the sizzling hot fajitas as they pass your table. Smell the warm aroma of spicy chicken, bell peppers and onions. That’s exactly the aroma that will greet you when you come home from a long day at work (or play). Magic will have taken place in the slow cooker while you were out, and a fancy Mexican feast awaits you.
The prep for this meal takes only about 5 min. You’ll just need to slice the bell peppers and onion into 1/4 inch slices. If you’re like me, and always running out of time in the morning, you could easily prepare this the night before and store in ziplock bag the refrigerator.
