So today’s experiment in the slow cooker is chicken soft something. The recipe is for chicken soft taco’s, but I am almost certain my husband will want chicken soft nacho’s. The recipe is essentially the chicken itself, now what ever you decide to do with the chicken is up to you. The recipe is simple, and great in a bind. You don’t even have to defrost the chicken, and there are three easy ingredients. Throw them all in the slow cooker, and cook on low for six to eight hours.
- Four FROZEN Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (or approx 1 lb.)
- 1 14.5 oz Can of Tomato’s (or tomato’s with peppers)
- 1 Packet of Low Sodium taco seasoning.
Note: I put the can of tomato’s in and a little bit of salsa. Also, instead of the seasoning packet, I put in some of my own seasonings that I know we like, therefore removing some of the seasonings that I don’t like. I used paprika, chili powder, and dried onion flakes.
I have made this recipe previously, and it was amazing. Now I am changing up the seasonings. I am doing this because ever since I got pregnant, my heart burn doesn’t like too many crazy seasonings and spices.
The thing I like most about this recipe, is it is great in a bind. I don’t know how many of you have a ton of chicken in the freezer to take out when you want it. Well, this is the recipe for when you don’t want to risk the chicken de-frosting on time (like today when I remembered to take something out at noon!). You can toss the frozen chicken in the slow cooker with a can of tomato’s some salsa and seasonings, turn it on, and you have a great meal that looks like it took all day to make. This chicken can be used, like I said before, in so many different meals, like burritos, enchiladas, nachos, tacos, and change-up the seasonings for even more feasts.
Feel free to suggest seasoning alternative idea’s, and meal ideas for this simple easy main ingredient. (And low sodium and diet friendly!)
