  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 packet fajita seasoning mix (or make your own – see recipe variations below)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (undrained)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. Prep is key! Drizzle the chicken breasts with olive oil and coat them generously with fajita seasoning.
  2. Layer it up! Add the seasoned chicken breasts to the bottom of your slow cooker. Pour the diced tomatoes with green chilies on top.
  3. Veggie time! Scatter the sliced bell peppers and onions over the chicken and tomatoes.
  4. Slow cook magic! Pour in the chicken broth and stir gently to combine the flavors. Cover your slow cooker and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours, or on HIGH for 4-5 hours, or until the chicken is tender and shreds easily with two forks.
  5. Fajita fiesta! Once cooked, shred the chicken directly in the slow cooker. Warm your tortillas of choice (corn or flour) and assemble your fajitas with the chicken mixture, your favorite toppings like shredded cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.
