skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 (8 ounce) jar
red onion, chopped
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Awesome & easy! I didn't have 4 hours so I cooked on high for a little over 2 hours, shredded it then cooked on low for another 20 minutes. Adults had on hoagies with melted moz on top. Kids loved with white rice on the side. Great for slow cooker Sunday :)
Recipe was okay. Make a lot of food, but was lacking in flavor..maybe if the sauce was thicker.
Followed recipe exactly and put it in my small slow cooker. So easy and it makes a tasty, filling dinner. I shredded the chicken and put it in tortillas with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream.***Had about 1/2 left after first meal. Made a Chicken Taco Soup the next night by adding leftovers to 2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, one can blended, 1 can whole kernel corn, 1 can kidney beans, and 1-2 T. of Taco Seasoning I from this site. Delicious repurposed recipe!
I flipped out a bit when I realized I had NO tomato sauce in my pantry. Whoops. I did have V-8 so I used that instead. I also threw in a handful of fresh cilantro. This smells AMAZING, a lot like the salsa chicken I make on a regular basis. I can only assume we'll love it just like we do salsa chicken. I plan on spooning the sauce over mexican rice and I've made homemade refried beans to go with it. Can't WAIT for dinner. NOTE: I was able to make this in my "Lil' Dipper" crockpot which saved me on counter space and it cooked it perfectly. Cutting the breasts each in half filled up the crockpot 3/4's of the way through so I didn't need to worry about burning my ingredients.
Extremely easy and flavorful! I used hot salsa since that was all I had and it was quite spicy, but great... I put the meat in tacos with shreaded cheddar and sour cream. My husband wants it on rotation :)
This is very good! The chicken is not dry and just falls apart! I made burritos out of it with green chile and cheese!
I completely forgot the red onion but this still tasted great. I added a few dashes of red pepper sauce too. Served over rice but husband suggested to serve in fajitas next time. Great flavor.
I followed this recipe as posted, except I only had white onion and 2 chicken breasts. To make up for the missing breast, I added a can of black beans. I put the chicken in the crock pot, then poured the beans around it, then layered the remaining ingredients, as instructed. I cooked it on low for a little over 4 hours. It smelled wonderful when I got home! When I took the lid off, I was a little worried that it wasn't going to work well for taco filling (in soft corn tortillas) because it looked a little watery, but when I used the forks to shred the chicken, it absorbed the excess liquid. It made for excellent tacos! Thank you for sharing!
