Crockpot Adobo Fajita Chicken Recipe

Crockpot Adobo Fajita Chicken Recipe- This spicy chicken recipe is sure to please heat lovers and it couldn't be easier to make in a slow cooker!


My husband loves spicy meals and I do most of the time. What’s silly is I don’t like the texture of onions and peppers and this Adobo Fajita Chicken recipe calls for both yet I loved it. This recipe is for a slow cooker like a crock-pot and we let it cook all day. It left the house smelling absolutely wonderful like a west-Mex restaurant or a taco truck. The chicken was fall off the bone delicious. I couldn’t believe how good and tender it was considering this was a whole chicken I had forgotten about in the back of my freezer for like 6 months.

This recipe could work in a larger instant pot although I am not sure of the calculations or time with that as I made this in my slow cooker before I got an Instant Pot. I suggest looking for a recipe on cooking a whole chicken in an instant pot and see if you can get them there.
