  3. Oh YUM! Pinning to make very soon. We just love soft tacos and I love how simple this recipe is, but I bet it's full of flavour. Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.

  7. Should you chop the chicken up a bit before cooking it, or just toss them in as tenders? It looked like they were cubed in the picture

  8. Hi There,
    Yes, before assembling I break the chicken into pieces. Hope you enjoy!

  9. Do you use thawed chicken or can you put the chicken in frozen?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I've made it both ways. If you use frozen chicken you will want to drain some of the liquid.

  11. Do you double the cooking time if doubling?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Nope. As long as you can fit all the chicken in your crock pot evenly, you shouldn't need to double the cooking time!

  15. I made these for my VERY picky in-laws this past weekend and there wasn't a chicken fajita left to speak of! They actually liked it, yay!
    I loved the lightness of the meal and have no complaints about the recipe. It was very well done. Thanks for sharing:)

  17. Do you crush the chips on the dish and then wrap them in the flour tortilla shells?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi There,
    I added the chips right before wrapping each melt.

  19. How many points is it without the chips?
