Another great Freezer Cooking recipe!
NOTE: Now I usually make this in the crockpot!

This chicken is bursting with flavor and very tender! I shredded it and made burritos. Black beans, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced olives, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream all wrapped up in fresh flour tortillas...

It went so fast...I didn't have a chance to get photos! If you make it, please post one or I will be sure to take one the next time I make it.
