Easy Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

Some meals are so simple it's stupid.

Easy Crockpot Chicken Fajitas
Chop 1 white or yellow onion into long thin strips
Cut into strips 3-4 peppers (Green, Red, Yellow, Orange)
Cut 2 pounds of chicken (skinless/boneless). Chop each breast into 2 pieces.

Layer in crock pot:

Add on top 1 packet of fajita seasoning mixed with ~1 cup of Chicken Stock or Water.

Let cook on low all day long. Shred the chicken.

And BAM, this is what you have!

Ok, maybe there's some extras in there. Like finding low-carb tortillas (La Tortilla is your best choice) and adding some extras like avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream. You can add beans & rice if you wanted, but I didn't want to bother with the extra carbs.
The meal is really simple. I would also recommend this a freezer meal. Pre-chop the onion, peppers, and chicken, add the fajita seasoning and freeze. Then you just have to pick up the extra fixens. And we cheated by buying already shredded lettuce. I don't mind chopping tomatoes, but eh, lettuce.
