Amazing Crock Pot Chicken
Amazingly easy and delicious!

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or canned chicken)
1 28-ounce can green enchilada sauce
1 4-ounce can chopped green chilies
1 bag tortilla chips
Sour cream as a condiment
Shredded cheese as a condiment

Put thawed chicken breasts into crock pot with enchilada sauce and green chilies. Cook on high for approximately 6 hours. Remove chicken from sauce and shred. For nachos, place shredded chicken on a bed of tortilla chips, add shredded cheese and top with a ladle of sauce and a dollop of sour cream. 8 servings.

Other variations: To make a delicious white chili, just add ½ cup chopped onion (or ¼ cup dry onion flakes) and 2 cups of dry white beans. To do this, “quick-soak” the beans (see package directions) before adding them to the crock pot. Depending on how much chicken you are using, adjust liquid by either adding additional water or another can of green enchilada sauce—either small or large depending on your needs.

For BBQ chicken sandwiches, place shredded chicken on bun or bread and add BBQ sauce. Can also use the meat in chicken tacos, chicken salad, chicken enchiladas, etc.

NOTE: If using canned chicken, you don’t need to use a crock pot. Just simmer 2 or 3 13-ounce cans of chicken in the enchilada sauce with the green chilies for about 45 minutes. Strain to get the meat out, or use large slotted spoon.

    I love this idea. I work all day and try to use crockpot recipes at least once a week to save my sanity. When I plan my food storage meals (using your plan, of course!) I’ll probably put this one into my menus. It sounds like food storage my husband and baby could like! Thanks for the great ideas.
