Julie's Crock Pot Cola Chicken Taco


In my search for yummy "crock pot" dishes, I came up with a lot of soups, stews, and chili recipes...all of which I adore, but my family isn't big on. I love using my crock pot and having dinner cook all by itself while I go about my day...so I knew that if I was going to make something good that my family would eat AND do that all in the crock pot, I had to come up with something a little different than what I was finding....thats when I thought of this fantastic meal idea, all from my own little "thinker". My recipe was a huge hit. I made enough chicken for leftovers "hoping" that everyone would like it and I am glad that I did because we ate it and ate it and ate it...never once did I hear anyone complain as they shoveled another bite into their mouth and made themselves another taco. I love meals like that! Hope your family loves this delicious dish as well as mine did.

Julie's Crock Pot Cola Chicken Taco
6-8 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breast

Place chicken in crock pot. Cook on low until it will easily shred. Every crock pot is different, my chicken took about 5 hours to cook...yours may take more or less time. Remove chicken and shred it. Drain all liquid from the crock pot and put shredded chicken back into your crock pot.

Then add:
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 can cola
1 small can enchilada sauce
1/4 c. Franks (must be this brand) hot sauce

Pour over shredded chicken, stir well and cook on low for 2 hours. Serve in hard shell taco's with your favorite taco toppings...example: diced onion, tomato, cheese, avocado, black beans, corn, olives, sour cream or RANCH. ENJOY to your hearts content!

* There will be a lot of sauce on your chicken so as you are getting it out of the crock pot to put into your taco, you may want to use a slotted spoon and drain it a little so that you don't end up with "soupy chicken taco's"...just sayin'.
