    taco chicken bowls $10.66 recipe / $1.33 serving This recipe is definitely "slow-cooker 101". It's probably one of the first recipes that most people learn to make in their slow-cooker. In fact, some version of it is probably included in that little mini recipe book that comes with the slow-cooker when you buy it. BUT, I had to post it because I know there are probably a lot of you who haven't made it yet and I can't bear the thought of you missing out. This recipe is great for bachelors, students, or the chronically busy because it's a "dump and heat" recipe. All you do is dump all of the ingredients together in a pot, and let it cook. Of course you'll need to make the rice separate but even if you're one of those people who can never get rice right, there is hope. Just stuff the chicken mixture inside of a tortilla with cheese for a quick burrito or fold it over in a tortilla and crisp it up in a skillet like a quesadilla. Presto. Easy, delicious, cheap food. I'm a black bean lover so next time I'm going to use two cans (or two can's worth of homemade) beans and extend the recipe even further. Oh, also, this freezes well. Cheese and all. Then just nuke and stir for a couple minutes until hot. Instant freezer meal! Okay, one more thing. If you for some strange reason need this recipe to be even easier or you don't have a well stocked spice cabinet, just substitute a packet of taco seasoning for all of the spices and herbs that I used below.

Give everything a good stir and make sure the chicken is covered in the mixture. STEP 2: Secure the lid on your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hrs. STEP 3: Near the end of the cooking time, cook the two cups of rice according to the package directions (Bring the rice and 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot with a lid in place, as soon as it reaches a boil, reduced the heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving). STEP 4: After 8 hours of cooking, carefully remove the lid of the slow cooker. Stir with a fork to shred the chicken (it should be super tender and will shred easily). Build the taco bowls by placing rice on the bottom, then the taco chicken mix, shredded cheese and fresh cilantro. taco chicken bowls Step By Step Photos raw chicken This is the chicken that I bought. I usually buy a 5 lb. package to get a good price but even this 3 lb. package was priced super low! I used half and froze the other half for another recipe later. You can also use chicken thighs for a richer flavor (more fat) or bone in chicken and then just remove the bones after cooking. add chicken Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Going to try this but modified. I don't have Herbs De Provence so I'm not sure what I will rub it with. I don't have red peppers so I'll layer the bottom with onion and carrots and stuff the bird with apples, carrots and onion. We'll see how it tastes.

Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili: this has become a standard in my house. I actually took the general recipe and un-crock-potted it so I can make huge vats and freeze it. It's easy to add/omit ingredients too. Pretty basic.
