Three Quick Recipes from Crockpot Chicken

Three Quick Recipes from Crockpot Chicken

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?
