  • Place chicken and onions (and peppers, if using) in crockpot. Sprinkle spices over all. Add the lime juice and stir well.
  • Cook on low for 4-6 hours. If you start with frozen chicken breast, you might need to cook for longer than 6 hours.
  • Serve in warm tortillas with your favorite fajita toppings.

  1. Great flavor but didn't make much. Next time I would double the recipe so there would be plenty for seconds!
  2. Delish! Made it for a Cinco de Mayo party and enjoyed leftovers for lunch. Very easy and good!
  3. My husband really liked this. I used whole boneless breasts and thighs. Kinda chunked it up after it was cooked. Served with rice and beans.
  4. Congrats ! Your Recipe is featured on our homepage today as the "Recipe of the Day!" (8/8/11)
  5. OH MY GOODNESS! I didn't put the onion or green pepper in the crock pot with the chicken, I saute'd them crisp tender right before serving...but the chicken...about 3 1/2 hours into the was falling apart and it tasted amazing! I had a hard time staying out of it until dinner! I didn't cut up the chicken either, I just used chicken breast tenderloins and threw them in the crock pot. Did I mention that the chicken tasted amazing? Great recipe! Thank You!


  1. These were great! I added about 2 TBSP taco seasoning, left out the onion, and used garlic salt instead of seasoning salt. I used 8 chicken breast tenderloins and that made enough for about 8 fajitas. The chicken came out nice and tender, much better than the stove top fajitas I've made.

Yet another feature change that has made the website less user friendly. It's sad to watch a fantastic site deteriorate over the years. Some of my recipes are on my blog.
