Quick and Easy Crockpot Chicken

Happy Thursday! In honor of Cinco de Mayo... here's a foodie post!


     Here are two super simple recipes that Ryan and I love! I go back to them often (probably make each of them a few times a month) because they are yummy and so quick! They are both super convenient for a busy day or evening, maybe the day after returning from vacation, or if your kitchen is a mess and you can't imagine making it worse!

Crockpot Shredded Chicken


What you need:
Jar of your favorite salsa
Chicken (as much as you need)
Taco seasoning
Crockpot

     Line your crockpot or if you're out of liners like I usually am, spray the bottom with cooking spray! Pour a thin layer of salsa across the bottom, then lay chicken on top of salsa. Sprinkle taco seasoning over top of chicken, I usually just eyeball it! Then pour another layer of salsa over top of the chicken so that it is completely covered! Set your crockpot on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-5 hours. After cooking use two forks to shred chicken! Add to tortillas for shredded chicken tacos, add to chips for chicken nachos, add to whatever your hearts desires!





     It is yummy, super quick and requires THREE ingredients! Not to mention, I've definitely made it without the taco seasoning before and it's just as great! So if you don't have any and you're in a rush, go with just chicken and salsa!




Crockpot Dr. Pepper BBQ Chicken


     Alright, this next one is most definitely not mine and I cannot claim it. This is something I found on pinterest and now it is the ONLY way we eat BBQ chicken around here! It is the easiest and yummiest chicken ever!

What you need:
Chicken breasts (3 breasts or 5-6 tenders)
1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce (18 oz.)
6 oz. Dr. Pepper
Crockpot

     Cook chicken in Crockpot on HIGH for 3 hours (covered). After 3 hours, drain juices from crockpot. Mix together Dr. Pepper and BBQ Sauce. Pour mixture over chicken, and cook on HIGH for 30 more minutes (covered), or until done.




Let me know if you try either of them!!
