I’m absolutely loving my home y’all – the kitchen especially! My new kitchen is much more functional than the last one, which means I’ve been doing my best to cook more often. There’s still that part of me that hates meal planning though, so often times I end up having to dream something up last-minute for dinnertime! Lucky for you, my lack-of-planning turned out pretty great earlier this week. I came up with this yummy slow cooker enchilada chicken recipe.
I’m a big fan of my crock pot, and when I’m at a loss for what to make I tend to break it out. It’s really a genius invention when you think about it … throw a bunch of stuff into this warm crock that will cook your food for a long time to make everything delicious. Hello mama’s best friend!
Mexican is one of my family’s favorite types of cuisine. Now, it might be somewhat sacrilege to actually call this “Mexican,” but bear with me. Combining these 5(ish) ingredients in the slow cooker makes an ooey gooey cheese sauce with a little kick to it. Why enchilada chicken you ask? Well, the sauce has green enchilada sauce and fiesta cheese soup in it which gives you those yummy flavors in a different form; what a fun way to mix things up a bit!
Follow the super simple recipe below to make your slow cooker enchilada chicken; then pour it over rice or noodles for a filling dinner. Pair it with your family’s favorite veg and you’ve got the perfect weeknight meal!
- 1-2 lbs Chicken Breast (fresh or frozen)
- 1 Can Enchilada Verde Sauce
- 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1 Can Fiesta Cheese Soup
- 1 Can Rotel (mild or original)
- Spices to Season
- Mix together the enchilada sauce, rotel, and soups in your crock pot. Try to combine as much as you can.
- Now is the time to season your meal. I like to use a generous amount of salt and pepper with a bit of Nature's Seasoning.
- Cut the chicken up into bite-size cubes and stir into the sauce mix.
- Cook in your crock pot for a 4 hours on high or 6 on low (until the chicken is cooked through). Some new crock pots take less time, so do what works with yours!
