Crockpot Chicken Fajita

We love going out to eat at Mexican restaurants, but a few chips and drinks later, I have completely ruined all my progress for the week! Of course we treat ourselves occasionally, this is a cheaper and much healthier alternative!! 

Simple, easy, and healthy this is how I love dinners around our house. Throw all the ingredients together in the morning, turn the crockpot on, and wallah dinner is done!!

Finished product!

- 2 lbs. boneless chicken
- 1 can petite diced tomatoes (make sure there is no sugar added)
- 1 red, orange, and green bell pepper
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large yellow onion
- 2.5 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 3/4 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp honey

- Pour half the can of tomatoes into the bottom and spread into an even layer. Top with half of the peppers and half of the onions. Sprinkle garlic in and then top with chicken.
- In a bowl whisk together chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle half on top of chicken, flip chicken and sprinkle the remainder on. Top with the rest of the tomatoes, peppers, and onion.
- Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low heat for 6 hours. Make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through before serving.
- My chicken shredded itself in the crockpot!!
- Empty out some of the excess juice in the crockpot. Warm up the honey and lime juice mixture then add into crockpot, stir! 
- Ready to serve!

Serve with whole wheat or corn tortillas. I added plain greek yogurt (sour cream substitute) and homemade guacamole on top of mine! Enjoy this healthy Mexican dinner with the whole family!
