Last night as I was about to go to bed, I realized I had a package of boneless chicken breasts that was dated that day. I decided to just quickly clean them and throw them in the crockpot overnight to make shredded chicken. I will use the shredded chicken in quesadillas, enchiladas, tortilla soup, etc.
I looked online for inspiration and came up with this concoction. It is easy and works very well.
Shredded Salsa Chicken in Crockpot
- 6 boneless chicken breasts
- 1 cup Pace picante sauce
- 2-3 TBSP of homemade taco seasoning mix
- 1 cup water
- Salt to taste*
- Put chicken breasts in crockpot. Sprinkle the taco seasoning and salt on the chicken breasts. Pour in water and top off with picante sauce.
- Cook on low overnight or for eight hours.
- Remove to jelly roll pan and begin pulling apart.
- Allow to cool slightly and then finish shredding.
- Freeze in one cup portions in sandwich bags.
*If you don’t make homemade taco seasoning, you can use store bought packages. You could then eliminate the salt. I added salt because my seasoning mix doesn’t have salt.
