Tips to make Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas
- Cook on high for 2 – 3 hours. If you cook about 3 hours the chicken breast will be shredded. Which is perfect too. Therefore, decide how you like your chicken. Reduce cooking time accordingly.
- Also, add sliced bell peppers whenever you would like. However, adding them in the beginning will make them very mushy. Also, you can add them 1 hour or 30 minutes before the end of the cooking to make them crispy.
- This slow cooker chicken is not spicy at all. It has a great amount of chili seasoning. However, add more if you prefer spicy shredded chicken.
- In addition, I’ve noticed that chicken is more juicy after cooking if it stays in the juices longer. Therefore, it is very good on the next day. Store it in the glass container in the fridge.
