Well, spring has sprung and we are once again on the run! Between soccer, gymnastics and everything in between my crockpot has been getting a serious workout. The chicken dish I’m sharing today can be used for several different dishes-all of them quick!
For this perfect flavorful shredded chicken here’s what you need:
Raw chicken-about 4 or 5 breasts
1 or 2 Bell Peppers
1 or 2 White Onions
2 Cloves fresh Garlic
2 TBS Chili Powder
1 TBS Cumin
1/2 TBS Garlic Powder
Chicken Broth (I use about half the box shown)
Note: To make it even easier use prepackaged taco or fajita seasoning!
All you do is throw everything in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Once it’s done here are three ways to use it:
1) Sub Sandwiches-Drain off the liquid, put shredded chicken on loaf that has been sliced almost all the way through. Add some cheese (we like provolone). Then just toast it in a 400 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes.
2) Pizza Topping- Drain off liquid. Top a premade pizza crust with marinara, add the chicken mix, top with cheese and cook in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes.
3) Fajitas. Add chicken mix to a tortilla and top with cheese and sour cream. This one is my favorite-probably because it’s the easiest! 🙂
What all do you make in your crockpot?
