Easy Fajita Chicken Soup

This is probably my favorite chicken at the moment! I eat it as soup, put it on salad and sometimes if I’m feeling crazy, I put it on a corn tortilla from Trader Joe’s (only 3 ingredients! Corn, water and lime..Score!) What makes it even better is I’ve been making it in a pressure cooker! Such an amazing thing. We got it as a wedding gift and now I’m not sure how I lived before I had one. I’ve made soup, roast, chicken, eggs..and this is week one! This recipe works just as well in a crock pot or pot with a lid on the stove though.  I’ve yet to make this particular soup stove top but promise it works just like any other!

Your ingredient amount are going to vary depending on how much you make but I usually make enough for 2 people to eat 3 times (6 servings to put it much simpler :D). I’d be lying if I said I measured my ingredients each time as well so seriously don’t stress this recipe. It’s easy and it’s tasty. If you’re not in the mood for measuring, add each seasoning liberally! (Just go easier on the salt, pepper and cayenne, unless you like things real spicy!) Also, when making again always feel free to adjust amounts of each spice! You know what kind of flavors you like better than others!


What you’ll need:


4 Chicken Breasts

1.5-2  Cups Chicken Bone Broth/ Chicken Broth

2 Green Peppers Sliced

1.5 -2 Tbsp Garlic Powder/ Minced Garlic

1- 1.5 Tbsp Onion powder/1/4 Chopped Onion

1/2- 1 TbspCayenne pepper

1Tbsp Cumin

1 Tbsp Chili Powder

1/2 -1 Tbsp Salt

1/2 – 1 Tbsp Pepper

1 Tbsp Paprika

A little mozzarella cheese on top (optional)

What to do:


One reason I adore this recipe is because it’s super easy!

No matter if you’re using the pressure cooker, crock pot or pot on the stove top (with a lid), you’re doing basically the same thing.

Slice your green peppers

Add bone broth to the pot followed by chicken, peppers and all spices.

Mix everything around.

Were already to the cooking, yes it’s that easy!

Pressure cooker: Set to poultry and cook for 25 minutes.

Crock pot: You can cook 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

Stove pot with lid: Cook on medium-high until it starts to boil, then lower down to low-medium and cook until the chicken is all the way boiled and peppers have gotten limp and changed to a less bright green (this is going to take at least an hour of cooking).

No matter which method you use, once it’s done cooking, shred the chicken with 2 forks and serve!
