Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

I love how these crockpot chicken fajitas marinate while they are cooking but the secret to crockpot chicken fajitas is not cooking the peppers and onions too long.  No one likes soggy peppers and onions.

  • If you need to cook these all day while you are away, cook them on low and when you get home, add the peppers and onions for 30 minutes - 1 hour (leave the slow cooker on low).  If you go this route, you may want to use the chicken thighs so your chicken won't be as dry.
