Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

on January 28, 2014

chicken fajitasI tend not to discriminate against my slow cooker in warm months but I do love to spend some extra time with it on my counter on colder days. And boy, are these colder days! Perhaps I should enter myself in the slow cooker vortex?

In any case, I recently tried a slow cooker recipe from Food Family Finds that I love and tweaked a bit to avoid the seasoning packet and swap our chicken breasts for thighs, which are so much for flavorful and not that much more caloric (a common reason so many people devour chicken breasts).  Just a little cleaner and still very easy.  Here’s what I did:

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

INGREDIENTS

1/4 C butter

2 C green peppers, sliced

2 C yellow onions, sliced

5-6 chicken thighs

1 T cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic salt

1/2 C mild salsa (so the kiddos will eat it!)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Turn on slow cooker to low

2. Add butter, peppers, onions and chicken – in that order

3. Sprinkle seasoning and add salsa

4. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours

5. Shred chicken and serve in tortilla with plain greek yogurt, and shredded cheese
