Recipe for Slow Cooker Fajita Style Chicken

Slow Cooker Fajita Style Chicken


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • 1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 6-7 whole garlic cloves
  • 4 bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp ea salt and pepper
  • corn tortillas
  • sour cream
  • Avocado Corn Salsa
  • 1 cucumber, seeded and diced
  • 3 tomatoes on the vine, diced
  • 2 avocado, diced
  • a can of corn, drained
  • cilantro
  • lime juice
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a small bowl mix the oregano, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
  2. Add the chicken breasts into the slow cooker and toss the dry seasoning in to coat the chicken. Add in the garlic cloves, peppers, onions and broth. Cook on low for 4 1/2-5 hours, until the chicken is falling apart.
  3. Remove the chicken and shred it with two forks and don’t worry if you have some bigger pieces… we’re being rustic here ;-) Then go ahead and place the chicken back into the slow cooker to absorb even more flavor! Remove everything into a serving bowl and squeeze lime juice over top and toss.
  4. Avocado Corn Salsa
  5. Mix all the ingredients together for a very refreshing salad that pairs perfectly with this dish!
  6. I served the slow cooker fajita style chicken with corn tortillas and a dollop of sour cream.
