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.

  1. Add chicken breasts and broth to crockpot. Season well with homemade chicken fajita seasoning (per recipe below).
  2. Add vegetables and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.
  3. Spread salsa on top in a thin even layer to keep everything moist.
  4. 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 cook 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.
