Healthy Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

I found this awesome chicken fajita recipe over at StacyMakesCents . If you cannot cook, you must invest in a crock pot/slow cooker. Everyone will think you can cook and you may even surprise yourself. I changed one or two things in mine and it turned out great and healthy.

Slice green, red, yellow peppers and 1 medium onion. Lightly grease crock pot/slow cooker with olive oil. Place the peppers and onions in the cooker and place 3-4 skinless chicken breasts on top. Pour about 1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock over the top. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with Mrs. Dash fiesta lime seasonings. Cover completely with the spice mixture. Then drizzle the juice of one fresh lime on top. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

I did not shred the chicken, I cut into chunky pieces but you could do what you like.  I warmed a few whole wheat tortillas, added a little cheese, fresh tomato, lettuce and avocado. There you go, an easy healthy meal and the leftovers are great too.

Well, it is that time of year when we are all thinking about new ways to stay healthy. I am going to experiment with more crock pot recipes over the next few weeks so I will share what I come up with.

I am excited about the new year. I have set some new goals for myself that I will be sharing later. Also, another Fit In 5 workout will be posted this week. I think we all need a good sweaty New Year’s Day workout.  Are you in?
