I held a Pampered Chef party over a year ago, specifically to earn the Deep Covered Baker (DCB), a pretty expensive item. I’d heard it called the “magic pot,” but since I’m such a fan of the slow cooker, I didn’t know what was so special about it. Then I got to know a mom in my neighborhood with 7 kids, and she swears by it, so I gave it a try. Couldn’t be easier! I’ve been able to walk in the door from swimming and have dinner on the table in minutes. These Chicken Fajitas are the perfect summer dinner with fresh veggies.
Chicken Fajitas in the DCB
1-2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced or whole
Seasonings–I used PC’s Chili Lime Rub, but you could use a packet of Taco Seasoning or your own
1 red pepper, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced (I used red, but any type will do)
In the Deep Covered Baker, lay the onion and peppers. Sprinkle with half the seasoning. Layer the chicken on top and sprinkle the rest of the seasoning. Cover and microwave for 12-15 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check that the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees. Transfer the fajitas to a serving bowl using tongs or slotted spoon.
For a gluten-free meal, serve over rice. For a more traditional fajita, serve in flour tortillas along with cheese and sour cream.

Disclosure: I’m not a Pampered Chef rep, just a happy customer. I use a lot of their tools in my kitchen and really like them.
