Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken


Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken

What makes this dish stand out from all the other easy chicken recipes out there is the chicken itself. Slow cooking the chicken before shredding it makes the meat really tender and full of flavor, making this Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken dish from Campbell's Kitchen simply superb. When you add in layers of tortillas and cheese you have a budget-friendly meal for family dinners or a get-together with your friends.


Time Saving Tip: You can also cook the chicken on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

Flavor Variation: You can stir in 1 can (about 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained and 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn, thawed, to the chicken mixture before layering and baking.

This sounds more like Mexican Lasagna, don't you think?
