Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

Here is the main event from our Cinco de Mayo feast and it was yummy.  I made the tortilla bowls with those Costco uncooked tortillas that are so yummy

Tortilla Land Tortillas

and these taco shell makers

Tortilla Bowl Makers

which worked surprisingly well!  I got them at Gordmans for cheap, less than $10, just make sure that you poke the entire surface of the tortillas with a fork before baking otherwise they puff up so much that you really can’t use them as a bowl.

I made a batch of Cilantro Lime Rice and warmed up a few cans of black beans and then this chicken recipe with all the taco salad fixings such as lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, etc and our feast was complete!  The chicken recipe comes from “My Recipes”.

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

salt and pepper

1 cup salsa

juice and zest of 1 lime

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1 tablespoon honey

3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

1  Spray slow cooker with cooking spray.  Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in slow cooker.  Mix remaining ingredients together.  Pour over chicken and turn to coat.  Cover and cook on low until chicken is falling apart, 3 – 5 hours.

2  Shred chicken with 2 forks or in your mixer with the paddle attachment.  Add juice from crock pot to chicken as desired.
