Ingredients

  • 1 each red, yellow & green bell pepper seeded & sliced into strips
  • 1 yellow onion sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 (16 oz) jar salsa
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet fajita seasoning
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice

Instructions

  • Pour half of the salsa into the bottom of the crock pot.
  • Top with half of the sliced peppers and sliced onions.
  • Sprinkle on minced garlic.
  • Then top with chicken breasts.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the chicken breasts with packet of fajita seasoning.
  • Top chicken breasts with remaining salsa, peppers, onions.
  • Squeeze lime juice over top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours (or high heat for 3-4 hours) until chicken is cooked through.
  • There will be a lot of juice produced during cooking so you'll want to drain that out or use a ladle to remove it and discard.
  • Once cooked, remove chicken and shred using a couple of forks.
  • Pop the shredded chicken back into the crock pot, cover and switch it to the "warm setting" until ready to serve.
  • Give it a taste, you may want to season with salt and pepper.

Notes

Set out tortillas, cheese, sour cream and salsa and let everyone help themselves!
