  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 14 1/2 ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1 16 ounce package frozen pepper (yellow, green, and red) and onion stir-fry vegetables
  • 1 15 ounce can cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons light dairy sour cream (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons purchased guacamole (optional)
In a medium bowl, combine chicken, chili powder, fajita seasoning, cumin, and garlic; toss to coat. Coat an unheated large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, half at a time, in hot skillet until browned on all sides, stirring occasionally.
Place chicken in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add undrained tomatoes, frozen vegetables, and cannellini beans. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
If desired, top individual servings with sour cream, shredded cheese, and/or guacamole.


  • For Easy Cleanup:

    Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
