Reviews for Busy-Day Chicken Fajitas
"The biggest plus, besides being an EASY slow-cooker meal, is no having to mess with the chicken beforehand - slicing, dicing, cubing. None of that - just lay it in the cooker and go. I LOVED that, because I hate working with raw chicken. I used medium picante and it was a good level of spice. Husband loved these fajitas and I would make it again for sure."
"excellent! added most of pepper and onions 1/2 way through cooking so they were firmer."
"I did these in the crock pot and my family, including a 3 year old and a 18 month old, really liked them. Easy to make. Will certainly make them again."
"This was not wonderful. Sad, because it smelled great...too runny and the veggies were overcooked. the seasonings were not flavorful enough. I won't make it again. too bad."
"I agree totally with Dianaore. These were good, but not very similar to my idea of fajitas and mine also had more liquid than expected. The peppers and onions were quite mushy after 4 hours on low and 1 hour on warm. My husband said this was pretty good and I liked how easy it was, so i will make these again. Next time, I will add the peppers and onions in later instead of at the beginning."
