One of the kitchen tools that I have never been a huge fan of is the crockpot. I have used mine occasionally. Never with much success. It seems like everything that I have tried ends up tasting the same. Or swimming in its own grease. Appetizing not. However. I do have a few crockpot recipes that I like. And I thought I'd share them with you. Starting with the very easiest one. Easy. And most importantly - yummy.
This recipe is so easy that it only calls for three ingredients. Three. 3. T.H.R.E.E. That's it. Bonelesss chicken breasts. Salsa. And taco seasoning.
Just dump them all in your crockpot.
Maybe swirl it a bit with a spoon. And ignore it the rest of the day.
When it's cooked, that chicken will just fall apart. It might need a smidge of help from you and a fork. But it's rather effortless.
What is interesting about this is that chicken you started with. Well. It's like it multiplies. After you eat your tacos. You will still have LOTS of chicken left. You can freeze some. You can make chicken nachos. You can make enchiladas. Taco salad. Tortilla soup. Or just keep noshing on it as you do the dishes. And wonder about the mystery of your disappearing leftovers.
Here is my simple recipe:
6 boneless chicken breast (frozen or thawed)
16oz jar of salsa spiced to your taste
1 envelope of taco seasoning
Put all the ingredients in the crockpot and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Enjoy!
So...what about you? Do you like your crockpot? Have a favorite crockpot recipe? Do you use those crockpot liners?
