I just love my crock pot. I mean I really, really love it. It truly makes clean eating so simple. And, I just hate to cook. So I like to prep the ingredients, plug in the machine, and then basically walk away.
I came across this recipe some time ago and thought I would share with you.
I am calling it:
“Fix and Forget About It” 21 Day Fix Chicken
3-4 chicken breasts
4 cloves of pressed garlic
2 tsp of chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp. cilantro
4 bell peppers, any color (sliced)
1 large onion (sliced)
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes (use a low sodium version or check out this easy recipe for stewed tomatoes)
Put all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
If your time will allow it, add the bell peppers to the slow cooker in the last hour so they aren’t too soggy.
When the cooking time is over, shred chicken with a fork.
Place 1 Red container of the chicken mixed with tomatoes and garlic onto a 1 Yellow whole wheat flour tortilla. Top with 1 Green container of sliced peppers and onion.
Optionally serve with 1 Tbsp. of Non-fat Greek yogurt or a Blue container of shredded cheese.
1 fajita is 1 red, 1 Green, 1 Yellow and an optional 1 Blue.
