Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

securedownload (4)

What’s your crazy night?  Ours is probably Thursdays because the girls have dancing  in the evening, so on Thursdays the Crockpot is my friend.  I found this recipe for Crockpot Fajitas in one of the new cookbooks I found in my Mother-In-Law’s kitchen cupboard a couple of weeks ago, and it’s a keeper. It’s hard to find good crockpot recipes that don’t contain cans of soup or packet mixes, so if you have any “Can’t Do Without” crockpot recipes, I’d love to hear from you.

I just popped the Crockpot on while the kids were at school, made a salad, grated some cheese and checked that I had tortillas in the cupboard and sour cream in the fridge, then went about my day knowing dinner was as good as ready.

Crockpot  Chicken Fajitas


securedownload (3)1kg Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 Onion, thinly sliced

1 Red Capsicum, sliced

1 tsp Cumin

1 tsp Chilli Powder (start with 1/2 tsp if you don’t like things spicy)

1 Tbl Lime Juice

1/2 Cup Chicken STock

8-10 Warmed Tortillas

To Serve:


Sour Cream


Lettuce, tomatoes etc


Lightly oil the base and sides of your crockpot.

Slice chicken breasts into strips (on the diagonal) and place in the bottom of the crockpot.

Layer the onion and capsicum over the top of the chicken.

Combine the cumin, chilli powder, lime juice and chicken stock in a bowl and stir to combine.

Pour this mixture over the top of the chicken, onions and capsicum, place the lid on the crockpot and cook on LOW for 5-7 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Times will vary according to your crockpot.  Mine always cooks much faster than the times given.

Remove chicken mixture from the crockpot and disgard the juices.

Serve on warmed tortillas with your favourite toppings.

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
