I made this in the smaller crockpot yesterday for me. I used homemade taco seasoning and organic chicken broth. It was just what I needed. I portioned out the chicken for my chicken salad lunches for the week then saved the broth in a seperate freezer container to use for taco soup at a later date. The great thing about this recipe for me anyway is that it does double duty! Read More

Made the recipe as written. I wanted to enjoy this but it was so wet and who wants soggy chicken in their taco? I might try it again without any broth at all. I cooked it down on the stove to remove the moisture but it wasn't that great even then. It needs a sauce or something. Read More

Good basic recipe for shredded chicken. Used boneless thighs. Just a tip: to save time when shredding chicken just put it in your stand mixer and use the paddle attachment it will be shredded in no time. Read More

This recipe is delicious and easy especially on my student schedule! I made a couple changes and additions to mine. I also add anywhere from 1/2 to 1 cup of lentils in with the chicken as an additional healthy filler to compliment the chicken. I also added 1 can of drained corn kernels about 1 hour to 30 minutes before serving to get a vegetable in the meal. I also found that if you have less than 5-6 hours for preparation you can butterfly the chicken breasts and they will be done in only 3 hours. A new favorite for me! Read More

I'm currently doing contest prep for a bodybuilding competition in November. Anyone who has done this knows how important chicken is and how every calorie counts! This recipe is amazing for so many reasons!!! 1. I used organic fat free broth that only added 10 calories and no fat 2. I eat 1.5 pounds of chicken a day and cooking it gets REALLLLYYY OLD realllyyy fast. So I literally tossed 6 pounds in the slow cooker adjusted the rest and went to bed came back at 7 am with days worth of delicious food. 3. It adds so much flavor to the chicken us body builders usually miss out on because we are so restricted... I freaking love this idk if I'll ever cook chicken another way. Read More

My family LOVES this recipe!!! I add a can of rotels or fire roasted tomatoes (whichever I have or remember to pick up). I also double it because I make nachos with leftovers later in the week...AMAZING! Place your tortilla chips on a baking sheet/large pizza pan spread chicken on chips then top with cheese bake at 350 for a few minutes until cheese is melted. Enjoy with your fav dipping sauces.
