Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

The more I cook, the more I fall in love with my crock-pot. My crock-pot Sunday’s have expanded to Crock-pot Tuesdays, and sometimes even crock-pot Thursdays. Slow cooking is just so simple and the finished product always turns out tasty. I often throw everything in the slow cooker at lunch and come home from work with a ready to eat dinner. This Mexican pulled chicken is not only great on its own but can be used for enchiladas, tacos, burritos, nachos and more. This time I used it for easy chicken tacos, scooped it on a tortilla and topped it with fresh avocado and sour cream!

Ingredients:

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (with chilies)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 can of green chilles
  • 1 yellow onion- chopped
  • ½ cup of chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. of cilantro- chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • Place chicken on the bottom of the crock pot
  • Add all ingredients
  • Cook on low for 6 hours
  • Shred chicken in the pot
  • Serve on a taco shell or use for enchiladas!
