  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 red, orange and green bell pepper, cut in thin strips (seeds and ribs removed)
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey

Serve with:

  • Flour tortillas
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese


  • Pour half of the canned tomatoes in bottom of crock pot. Spread in an even layer. Top with half of the peppers and half of the onion slices. Sprinkle garlic in. Top with chicken breasts.
  • Sprinkle the chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper over chicken breasts. Top chicken with remaining canned tomatoes, peppers and onion.
  • Cover and cook on LOW heat 6 to 8 hours, or on HIGH heat 3 to 4 hours, until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender. Remove chicken and shred. Remove most of the broth/liquid that the chicken creates as it cooks from crock pot and discard.

  1. I loved this recipe. The only thing I did different was I sautéed the peppers & onions separately at the end instead of adding them to the crock pot so they wouldn’t be too soggy. I’ve added them in the CP in the past and that has happened. I also loved the honey and lime flavor and that it wasn’t too spicy. I will def make these again!

  2. I started this yesterday morning and my fiance and I had it for dinner last night…It was absolutely amazingly delicious!! We like spice so I added a jalapeño.
    Thanks, definitely will make again!

  3. Absolutely amazing recipe. I have made this twice in the last week and I have it cooking right now. My family enjoyed it so much. The chicken turns out so good you can make anything with it, tacos, burritos, enchiladas just wonderful.

  4. These Crockpot Chicken Fajitas are easy to prepare, and make the most delicious dinner!   Serve them up with all of your favourite toppings!

  5. My gang really loved this last night, so did I. Have leftovers for today. A nice change. I’ve hooked my niece up with your site.We love your recipes.

  6. My grandson loved this. will be making this again,often. I only added an extra can of diced tomatoes. A great hit!

  7. My daughter is extremely allergic to tomatoes, but being that fajitas is one of my favorite foods I wanted to try this. I made it last week and it was amazing! I left out the tomatoes but added 2 cups of chicken broth. I made rice, and added black beans and corn and we actually ate it as a soup. I am making it again tonight because my parents are coming in from the west coast during the time I will be at a work meeting. My stepdad hates soup, so he can have fajitas while we eat it as a soup. It’s so versatile and delicious!

  8. I rarely leave comments but I am shocked at how few have left comments for this amazing dinner so I had to leave mine. This dinner is sooo easy and amazing delicious. Full of flavor. We made guacamole, rice and beans and everyone created and loved their wrap. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and thank you for posting this and making my life just a little easier. Much love and god bless!

  9. I’m loving this dish but scared I ain’t doing it right guess I won’t know till I shredded chicken and the flavor is good but still first time cooking it

  10. Making these for the second time in 2 weeks. It’s our new go to chicken dish. We made tacos & taco salads with the leftovers. This went great with homemade pickled red onions & avocado. Really a fantastic (and easy!) recipe. Thanks!

  11. I used boneless chicken thighs in place of the breasts, and when it came down to it, I couldn’t bring myself to discard two cups of that wonderful spicy broth-so I served this as soup! Big hit in my house-next time I will try this as a stovetop dinner.

  12. This is in the crockpot now! I can’t wait! Your shepard’s pie recipe is the BEST! One question on the fajitas, have you tried to prep and freeze this to cook later? Looking for some yummy, easy dump dinners! How important is the layering?

  13. Can this recipe be frozen as a dump dinner for later use? How important is the layering? I’ve got it in the crockpot now and it smells so good!! I’m sure it will be delish and I’d love to make a few dump dinners for the freezer! Please let me know if you have tried that!

  14. Hi, Holly! Love your recipes! I have a question about the Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas recipe. My husband is allergic to honey. Do you think there is something else I could substitute for the honey? Or just add the lime juice without something else? Or just omit that last step altogether? Sorry for all the questions, lol. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Karen! (sorry for the late reply) but you could just leave the honey out and be fine. If you want a little sweetness that it gives just add a tablespoon of brown sugar with the lime juice. 🙂 xo

    Thank you, wonderful recipe!

  16. Put this in my crockpot this morning and it was so nice coming home from work and smelling the nice aroma this made. It was so delicious and will make it again next week for out of state visitors. I make so many of your dishes and they all turn out great. Thank you for sharing.

  17. Has anyone done this in the instant pot? I would love to make this recipe, but have no idea how long to cook it in the instant pot for. Any advice is much appreciated 🙂

    made this in the instant pot with 2 frozen chicken breasts.

    Added 1/2 cup water Sautéed onions peppers garlic beforehand put those on bottom of instant pot then added frozen chicken and spices then added can of green chili’s then can of diced tomatoes closed lid and cooked for 20 mins with 20 mins natural release. Worked out great. I plan to make quesadillas with this mixture and some shredded cheese later.

    Family loved it! I drained off the extra juices, added enough water to cook a version of Arroz rojo (Mexican red rice). Great recipe!
