Crock Pot Mexican Chicken

Mexican Chicken is something I created one day when I had boneless, skinless chicken breasts and no idea what to make with them. This dish is really packed with flavor and it's very versatile too. If I have leftovers I use it for taco filling or serve over rice with a vegetable or salad as a side.

Mexican Chicken

1 pkg. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can diced green chilies
1 onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. pepper

Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook on high 4 hours or 6 hours on low. Shred chicken with a fork and mix well. Serve with tortillas, Spanish Rice and Refried Beans. Garnish with guacamole, sour cream and shredded lettuce.

Sounds really good. The crock pot is an amazing kitchen tool, isn't it. I made your pulled pork recipe last night (except I used beef) and it was great!

So glad you enjoyed the pulled pork (beef - LOL)! I make it with chicken or turkey too. If you enjoyed that recipe I think you'll really like this one too. :)

When you say 1 package, roughly how much is that? A pound?

Also, do you mean 4 hrs on high and 6 hrs on low?

Just wanted to check, I'm a rookie cooker....

Hi Bonnie, Sorry for the incomplete instructions, yet it is 4 hours on high or 6 on low and I'd say anywhere from 1 lb. to 3 lbs. works well for this recipe.

I added some Chipotle Peppers in adobe sauce and substituted a small can of chili verde for the diced green chilies. Fantastic all around.
