Easy Fajita Chicken

Easy Fajita Chicken Recipe

This is a really easy slow cooker fajita chicken recipe that makes a versatile meal. It tastes very similar to the chicken used in Mexican restaurants in their chicken taco salads. My kids will eat it plain, but I like it on a large salad with avocado and sour cream!

This recipe also freezes and reheats extremely well so it makes a great packed lunch or can be doubled to have a quick meal later. I like to pack as a salad by placing some at the bottom of a quart mason jar, topping with sour cream, then salsa, then cheese, then avocado, then lettuce. It can be dumped upside down for a 2-second salad on-the-go.
