The Crockpot chicken fajitas are the ultimate make-ahead meal, simple, tasty, easy and packs in the portions of veggies. I like to serve the Crockpot chicken fajitas with a few extras like crisp lettuce, cucumber slices, a scattering of diced fresh tomatoes, grated cheddar and real guacamole which takes only a few minutes to make and you can make it up and keep it in the fridge until ready to use.

This is one of the easiest family recipes I cook and I’m guaranteed clean plates when I serve it up.  Simply heat the crockpot then quickly slice up two onions and two peppers and scatter them into the crockpot, place the whole chicken breasts on top. So there’s no faffing around chopping up raw chicken. Then scatter over the top a tbs of sweet smoked paprika and two tsp of dried oregano. Pop the lid on and leave to cook. Around 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
