I just have to tell you I LOVE Mexican Food!!! The town I live in is rich with Mexican culture, so I get to enjoy authentic Mexican Cuisine as much as I want to. Now this dish may not be what you would call an authentic Mexican dish, but hey I’m counting it as one! Nonetheless, it is so delicious!
You put it in the crock pot and it is ready when you get home. I will let you in on a secret! Shh don’t tell anyone this! I put the chicken in frozen. This way it doesn’t dry out! It would never be because I forget to take the chicken out (No not I). But really it turns out perfect this way!
Once you shred this chicken it’s ready to be used in so many dishes. Let’s just count some of the ways!
Imagine this pilled on top of your favorite nachos or in cheesy filled quesadillas! Are your taste buds a droolin’ yet? One more idea – Pile this yummy shredded chicken on a taco or tostada shell with all your favorite fixings and you have dinner done! Sky’s the limit with this recipe!
Are you ready for how easy this is??
Take 3 nice big frozen chicken breasts and place them in your crock pot. Sprinkle on 1 teaspoon of garlic salt, 1 teaspoon of cumin and pour that bottle of salsa verde on top.
That is it. Let the magic happen on low for 6 to 8 hours (Varies on size of chicken breasts)! Shred by pulling the chicken apart with two forks! It is so tender you will not have to use your muscles at all! Serve on tortillas or in recipes I mentioned earlier. First just go ahead and take a bite just like it is! YUM!!!
