This really easy recipe is a hit with my friends. It has a very good flavor and texture. There are many ways to serve this - simply as a chicken breast with the vegetables on rice, or you can shred the chicken and serve it with tortillas for soft tacos. You can use cheddar or Mexican style cheese. You can cook this in the oven in a casserole, and let the cheese melt and get browned. So versatile!

A good chicken Crock Pot recipe is essential in a recipe box and this is one of the easiest. Six ingredients and you have a delicious shredded chicken that can be used for tacos, served over rice, or just eat it alone (it's that hearty). The chicken just falls apart after being slow cooked. It reminds us of chicken tortilla soup. So good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
