Café Rio Shredded Chicken Recipe

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

This chicken turns out so tender and tasty. We use it in our Café Rio taco salad, but it would also be delicious as taco, burrito, or enchilada filling as well!


The ingredients: (not pictured: chicken breasts)

1 small bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
1 T chili powder
1 T cumin
3 cloves garlic—minced
2 lbs chicken breast

Cook all together in a crock pot for 4 hours, shred meat and cook 1 additional hour--this is what the instructions say. I cook my chicken in the crockpot with water and onion for 6-8 hours and then drain the water, shred the chicken with a fork, and add the dressing and spices about 1 hour before we're eating.
Enjoy!
