Easy Weeknight Dinner: Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

As a new mom, putting together healthy and nutritious dinners every night has become a little more challenging. These days, my go-to kitchen appliance has been my slow cooker. I have always loved my slow cooker for its “throw in ingredients and forget about it” usefulness but I never truly appreciated it until now. Most weeks I need dinners that involve minimal steps with ingredients that I already have on hand in my pantry. It’s a tall order. However, these slow cooker chicken fajitas fit the bill on each of those levels, which is why I have made them many times over the last several months. They involve essentially 4 ingredients: chicken, salsa, frozen vegetable mix, and tortillas. You can make them too, just follow these easy steps:

  1. Place a 1 pound package of chicken breasts into slow cooker.
  2. Pour salsa over chicken.
  3. Set on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. When chicken is done, saute package of frozen fajita vegetable mix with olive oil on stove top until tender. These frozen packages typically include a mix of green and red bell peppers as well as onions.
  5. Place shredded chicken and vegetables onto whole wheat tortilla.
  6. Top with shredded cheese, avocado, etc. as desired.
