Chicken Fajitas

032This recipe is another crockpot one. A set it forget it kind. I know that those are usually the favorite. This recipe is a simple filler to use for a variety of meal options. I prefer to eat mine straight, like the photo.  However, it could be used to top a salad or placed inside lettuce for a wrap/taco style meal.  If you are making breakfast and have some leftovers, toss it in the skillet to heat it up and add some eggs to make it a Southwestern Scramble. It’s really your imagination! This is really so delicious.

2 chicken breasts
2 bell peppers, sliced thin
1/4 cup onion, sliced
1 cup salsa
1 tbsp ghee (or olive oil)
1 batch of Fajita Seasoning, as follows:
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp paprika

1. Add ghee to bottom of crockpot.
2. Slice bell peppers and onions. Place in crockpot.
3. Place chicken breasts on top of the peppers/onions.
4. In a small bowl, mix together the fajita seasoning mix. Sprinkle the seasoning on top of the chicken. (Note: I like my food a bit spicy and the amount recommended above does just that.  If you do not like your food spicy, omit all together, or for just a little bite, add 1/4 tsp.)
5. Pour the salsa on top of everything. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
