This Fajita Chicken & Rice will be your “go-to” comfort food this fall season. So easy to make & the perfect dinner to please even the pickiest of eaters!
When it comes to dinner, I like to keep things as simple as possible. I really love when I can utilize my slow cooker & my leftovers to make something super delicious that everyone loves. For me, slow cooker recipes should be all about toss & go. That’s the whole idea of a slow cooker, right? Just dump it all in there & let it do its thing. This is probably why I have 3 slow cookers & it’s not uncommon for me to have more than one going at once. I really love them & all the glorious recipes they help me create. This Fajita Chicken & Rice can be made from scratch, but I find myself making it more often when I have little time & a fridge full of leftovers just begging to be used.
To make this recipe I use leftover shredded chicken & white rice. You could use instant rice & rotisserie chicken to really speed the process if you didn’t have leftovers on hand. Either way, you really can just toss & go with this great dish. I love how thick & creamy it is. But you could even thin this out with additional chicken broth & make it into a soup if you prefer. That would be great with a sandwich on the side. Oh, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. With the chilly weather coming, I know we will be making this particular dish often & I hope you will too.

How many cups of rice should i use?
Hi Reagan, I think it depends on your taste, I’d say about 4 cups of cooked rice would be good.
