Let’s be honest, during the colder months no one wants to wake up extra early to prep a healthy and warm meal. We wind up going to the over-processed frozen meals, or the minimal snack bar and run out the door.

You can make these Chicken Fajita Biscuit Cups in less than 30 minutes on Sunday and have a scrumptious breakfast or even lunch for the whole week!!

These 30 minute or less chicken fajita biscuit cups are the perfect meal-prep recipe to take on-the-go all week long. I love to have plenty on hand for the week, and I know you will too!!

These also make the perfect holiday appetizer or you can make them ahead and warm them up for an upcoming dinner with friends.

Can I make these with other meats?

Sure!! You could add bacon, ground beef, ground turkey, etc. Feel free to customize them however you like! You can also add in more cheese if you want!

How should I store these?

After you make them and they cool, put them into a sealed container and refrigerate them. They should keep for 3 days in the fridge!

Can I make the filling in the slow cooker?

Yes!!! Simply add your ingredients to your slow cooker and allow them to cook on low (continually stirring) until the chicken is fully cooked and your veggies are soft!
