Chicken Taco Filling
This is a recipe that we have used in my house for a long time and I realized that I never added a picture! This is a very versatile dish and the chicken may be used for a large variety of purposes beyond chicken tacos. I love it over rice and it works great in quesadillas. We originally found this recipe in one of those recipe magazines from the grocery store. This was from Prevention Magazines' "Prevention Guide Slow Cooker Recipes (Fall 2006). It is very easy...and tastes great.
Ingredients (makes 4-5 portions):
2 tbsp Dried minced onions
3 Frozen boneless and skinless chicken breasts (around 1 1/2 pounds)
1 package Taco seasoning mix (low sodium if you have it) - (1.25 oz)
1 can petite diced tomatoes (with added flavors if you like), undrained (14.5 oz)
1. Place ingredients in slow cooker in order. Place minced onions on the bottom and then add the frozen chicken.
2. Sprinkle the taco mix and then the diced tomatoes (with liquid) atop the chicken.
3. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
4. When done, take two forks and shred the chicken and mix into the sauce. You can let it cook for an additional half our or so (but it is not necessary).
