Effortless Crockpot Chicken

Absolutely ADORE this recipe! I can’t believe how good it tastes and how easy it is to put together! Not to mention slow cooking this recipe all day makes my home smell simply scrumptious. 😉

Allow me to introduce to you one of my new best friends…Tony Chachere. Boy can this guy put together a flavorful mix of seasonings! Plus it’s very inexpensive. I found a huge container of this sprinkle magic for around $3.99 at Publix and it should last me a few years for sure!

Tony, you da bomb.

This recipe can easily be either an S or an E. I know E meals are more difficult (sometimes not as “satisfying”) so I usually use this chicken recipe in an E setting because it tastes soooo good. Refried beans/pinto beans are occasionally my kryptonite. Let me back up a sec…actually mexican food in general = constant kryptonite! Love it. Could eat it morning/noon/night. So when I find a good E dish that consists of yummy mexican flavors, it totally gets thrown in the weekly rotation. If you’re not a pinto bean lover like me, you could also do brown rice or quinoa for your good healthy carb in this E meal.

So to begin the short and easy process, put 3-4 chicken breasts, thawed (either cut into large pieces or whole) in the crockpot. Sprinkle the magic seasoning all over the chicken. Pour a 10oz can of enchilada sauce all over chicken. Cook on low for 10 hours. Olé!!

Cooking it on low will allow the chicken to seriously just fall apart. You can also cook on high for about 6 hours but I recommend the 10 hours.

I love to layer: shredded lettuce, refried beans, chicken, sauce, then a scoop of 0% fat greek yogurt with a sprinkle of salt! Tastes just like sour cream! Caramelized Onions would also taste aaaamazing with this. A side of green veggies (your choice) usually accompanies too.
