My husband loved this! I used Pace picante sauce - medium hot - and this seemed to solve the bland issue. He got out Tapitio sauce expecting to use it but he did not. He loved the taste. Used handmade corn tortillas, shredded cabbage, green onions and chopped tomatoes as toppings. Will make this again.
I so wanted to like this, because it was easy. However, it was a little bland for us, even after I pumped it up some with 1 tsp. ground cumin, 1/2 tsp. Penzey's Bold Taco Seasoning, and 1/2 tsp. chili powder. The blsl chicken was completely done after 2 1/2 hours, too. I shredded the chicken and added it back to the pot when I added the cream cheese.
I only had legs & thighs. Removed skin with paper towels. Hold ckn in one hand with paper towel. Grab skin with other hand with paper towel. Sooo easy. I did use a little extra salsa with a little ckn broth (1/4 cup). Followed recipe only I cooked mine in my electric pressure cooker. 20 minutes. Removed bones & shredded ckn. Dark meat always has more flavor. Served with chopped green onion. sliced olives, sour cream & shredded cheese.
This recipe was delicious and really easy to make! I thought the chicken might be too bland so I added some chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the chicken before placing it in the slow cooker. It turned out really well! Shred your chicken before adding the cream cheese to make it easier to eat. Serve with basic taco fixings - lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, etc - for a really yummy and easy dinner!
Instead of salsa I substituted tomatoes with diced green chilies. Also, take the lid of the crock pot when you mix in the cream cheese so some of the liquid will evaporate. Very good on flour tortillas topped with cheese!
This is one of my favorite easy recipes. I have always used Pace Picante Sauce and never thought it was bland. Definitely drain the corn or use frozen. We serve it over rice with corn chips on the side. The rice with the flavorful chicken and sauce makes it extra creamy and delicious. Try it!
Super easy to prepare- have to love that. However, it was extremely bland. I added some seasoning after it was made but 'eh- little late. Great idea for an easy set and forget meal- next time I will jazz it up a bit. Even try some ideas I read on here.
We love this recipe. I read how some thought it was bland so I sprinkled a package of taco seasoning on the chicken. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. It was yummy. Thanks for submitting it.
