Notes

To make Freezer Meal Chicken Fajitas:
  1. Place bell peppers and onions in the bottom of a heavy duty zip-top freezer bag. Add the water or broth, garlic, honey, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the bag.
  2. Squeeze out as much air as possible and seal the bag. Freeze flat for up to 3 months.
  3. When you are ready to cook the crockpot chicken fajitas, thaw for 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  4. Transfer contents of freezer bag to slow cooker. Cook as directed above.
 
If you want your bell peppers to be less soft, you can wait and add them during the last hour of cook time.
