Combine the ingredients in your slow cooker before you head out the door to run errands. Ready made dinner when you return.

2    pounds   skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1    tablespoon   chili powder
1    teaspoon   fajita seasoning
1/2   teaspoon   ground cumin
2      cloves garlic, minced
    Nonstick cooking spray
2    14 1/2ounce can  no-salt-added diced tomatoes
1    16 ounce package  frozen pepper (yellow, green, and red) and onion stir-fry vegetables
1    15 ounce can  cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
3    tablespoons   light dairy sour cream (optional)
3    tablespoons   shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (optional)
3    tablespoons   purchased guacamole (optional)
In a medium bowl, combine chicken, chili powder, fajita seasoning, cumin, and garlic; toss to coat. Coat an unheated large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, half at a time, in hot skillet until browned on all sides, stirring occasionally.
Place chicken in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add undrained tomatoes, frozen vegetables, and cannellini beans. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
If desired, top individual servings with sour cream, shredded cheese, and/or guacamole.
For Easy Cleanup:
Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
