This Mexican Pulled Chicken recipe is super easy to make – just throw everything in the crockpot and let it do its magic!
Who doesn’t love a recipe that can be made with less than 5 ingredients? I know I do! This Mexican Pulled Chicken can be made with only 4, and is the perfect base for a number of different meal ideas.
Last night, I put out a call for slow cooker recipes on Twitter, and there were many of you that sent along some amazing sounding recipes. But I’m going to be honest; I ended up using none of them and just wound up throwing in a few items that I already had on hand to make a fun little dish, which we’ll call…
Only 4 ingredients? You betcha! This pulled chicken recipe is beyond simple to make and makes for a perfect base for a number of meals; a salad topper, wrap filling, burrito bowls, and more!
4 hrCook Time
4 hrTotal Time
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 jar salsa
- 1 can chopped green chilies
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- Throw everything in the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Right before serving, shred chicken breasts with two forks.
Rather than making sandwiches or tacos out of the chicken (since we had neither rolls nor taco shells) I served the chicken over some brown rice and topped it with a couple pinches of shredded cheese, an ear of corn (which I cut off the cob, obviously) and a couple broken tortilla chips.
For how incredibly easy this dish was, I will say that it was pretty darn awesome! I’m thinking maybe next time I’ll get a little wild and crazy and maybe throw some extra spices or veggies in there too.
