This was super easy and delish.  Thought I would share!

Skinny Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

From: Shrinking On a Budget Meal Plans

Serves: 6

Ingredients:
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • green bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast 
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium 98% fat free chicken broth
  • (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (bulb lime is ok)
  • 6 (soft taco sized) flour tortillas (45 gms/each)
  • 6 Tablespoons salsa
  •  Tablespoons fat free plain greek yogurt
  • 1.5 cups julienned romaine lettuce
Directions:
Lightly spray bottom of slow cooker with non stick cooking spray and place sliced onion and peppers and kidney beans in the bottom.  Lay chicken on top of veggies.  Season all chicken evenly with 
taco seasoning. Pour chicken broth down side of slow cooker so you don't disrupt the seasoning.  Do the same with the lime juice. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours (or on High for 4-5 hours).

When chicken is done, pull chicken out of slow cooker. Shred  chicken with two forks and stir back into juices. Serve shredded chicken, peppers and onions with slotted spoon on tortillas. Mix together the yogurt and salsa. Top each serving with 2 Tbsp. yogurt/salsa mixture and 1/4 cup lettuce.

Picky Eater/Non-Dieter Tips:  Pick beans and peppers of their serving and make them a fajita with just 
chicken and lots of shredded cheese.  Microwave until cheese is melty

That sounds good!  I could eat that without the tortilla.

You lost me on the beans but other than that!  YUMMY!  Well I do add black beans and corn when I make enchiladas, so I guess they could work.

It has been a week already!?

I did make this sort of, last Friday. I cooked the chicken on the stove. I didn't use the crock pot, but all the ingredience were the same. 5 out of five people enjoyed it. Thanks.
