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.
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'.
