Dennis is FINALLY back to work and doesn't get home until between 6 & 7 most nights. After all of the running I do after work on any given day, we are walking in shortly before him. I have decided I'm going to put the crockpot to use again.
Today I made chicken tacos. I always use frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breast. I only made three b/c I didn't want a lot of leftovers if the girls didn't like it. It gave us a perfect amount for each of us to have 2 tacos each. Dennis LOADED his full of chicken, while the girls didn't. I had a normal amount.
Also, a huge time saver, crockpot liners. Because honestly, who wants to clean up after dinner?!!
I thought it tasted good, Bry wasn't a huge fan, but she doesn't like taco meat either. Cai liked hers, as did Dennis & I.
I have to say, somewhere on one of those lifehack posts, I saw the easiest way to shred mean was to use a mixer. That is the TRUTH!!!! It literally takes a minute and it's perfectly shredded with no work!! I LOVE IT! Best hack I've ever used.
Tomorrow we are making chicken philly meat in the crockpot...mm...I love chicken philly sandwiches!
Tonight's easy recipe:
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast (mine were frozen)
2 spoonfuls of taco seasoning (you can add more if you like them stronger)
1/2 a block of cream cheese cut into chunks
1 c of chicken broth (could use water if you'd rather)
I dropped it all into the crockpot. Turned it on low and it was ready in 6 hours.
We had them on tortillas with lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, etc.
The only bad part about this one was that I had to come home and turn it on at lunch (only b/c I forgot to turn it on before I left for work). Not turning it on in the am turned out to be a blessing b/c it def would have burnt if I had let it go for 10 hrs!
Tomorrow I will use my digital crockpot that turns to 'warm' after the cook time is complete.
I hope you enjoy this easy 4 ingredient crockpot recipe!
