{CrockPot} Chicken Fajitas

We are in NYC and if you haven't heard, we have been hit by some snow recently.  Brendan works the snow shift and I have been really trying to dedicate myself to the gym after work, so literally we only see each other about 2 hours in the morning (if we're lucky- usually he is asleep when I wake up for work).  Anyway, since that has been happening and we have more snow on the way, I still wanted him to eat good even when I wasn't home to make him a normal meal.  I turned to my trusty crockpot.  It is way easier for me to prep at night and then just pop in the base and turn on in the morning, but do what suits you.

I have tried sweet and sour chicken, chicken fajitas and tonight is sausage in sauce with pasta.  I need to go food shopping asap, so not sure what the rest of the week will bring!


  • about 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts (I think I had a bit less than 2 lbs)
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 peppers, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 chipolte pepper in adobe, minced
  • 1/2 cup of chicken stock
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • spices: 2 tbsp cumin, 2 tbsp chili powder, 1 tsp oregano, a pinch cayenne


  • Add the onions, peppers and garlic to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add the chicken and the chicken stock.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients. (When you add the spices try and sprinkle evenly over the chicken)
  • Set on low for 5 hours (or anywhere between 4-8 hours.  I try and not over do it with boneless chicken breasts because they tend to dry out a tad).
  • When done, shred the chicken and mix in the juices.  Serve on a tortilla and with any toppings you prefer! (I went with avocado, jalapeno peppers, tomatoes and cilantro)
Not only is this healthy, but super simple. I just gave my little sister a crockpot for her new home- so here's another recipe for ya Cait! :)
