I love this chicken fajita recipe for an easy, hands off weeknight dinner. All you have to do is cut the peppers and onions, throw everything together and let the slow cooker do its thing.

This is a great make ahead freezer meal! Just prep the veggies and add everything to a freezer safe gallon size bag. Freeze up to 5 months. When you’re ready to make it, thaw the bag in the refrigerator for 24 hours, dump the contents into the crock pot and cook on low 5 hours. So easy!

Start by cutting the chicken breasts into slices (or leave the chicken breasts whole and shred them later) and add the chicken to the bottom of a 6-8 quart crock pot.

Slice the bell peppers and onions into strips. Cut them larger that you normally would, if they are too thin the veggies will disintegrate. After the peppers and onions are sliced, add those into the crock pot with the chicken.

You can also add in sliced mushrooms, jalapeños, or any other ingredients you like in your fajitas.

Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken and vegetables and sprinkle in the taco seasoning packet. Give everything a good mix.

Cover and cook on low 5 hours or high 2 1/2 hours.

If the chicken is whole, shred it. Serve from the crock pot in tortillas, taco shells, or over rice bowls with your favorite toppings. Easy dinner!
