This is a close companion to the crack chicken recipe I have posted. The difference here is a little more spice and some cauliflower rice/pears. It’s so super simple since it cooks in the crock pot all day. Just come home, remove the lid, shred the chicken, and enjoy. There are so many yummy flavors in this dish!
In your crock pot, add all of your ingredients. There’s no need to mix or stir at all.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. 30 to 45 minutes before serving, add your cauliflower pears. They don’t need long to cook. Once ready to serve, shred the chicken using a shredder or 2 forks. Don’t worry, it will fall apart!
Ladle out into a bowl and enjoy. You can add sour cream, cheese, green sauce, whatever your heart desires!
One pot, one super easy, super tasty meal. Start before you head out to work, or start at lunch. Either way, it’s so simple to have a great meal for dinner that you really don’t have to cook. Today is one of those days where we needed easy, and it doesn’t get any easier than this. Oh, and it’s fantastic. You get to be as creative as you like with this. Here’s how I assemble my crack chicken!
3 medium/large chicken breasts
1 block (8 oz) cream cheese
1 cup natural cheddar cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
8 oz homemade salsa (ours is Keto approved, no sugar)
1/2 cup bacon crumbles
Every seasoning in the cabinet… kidding.. or am I? Just season however you feel fit but don’t be scared to “SEASON” your food!
Line your crock pot with a liner, it makes clean-up so much easier. Throw in your uncooked breasts in the bottom. Season heavily, add your salsa, cream cheese, bacon, cheeses, and throw on the lid. **Note, if you don’t use salsa, you may want to put about 1/4 cup of chicken broth in the bottom. It will help keep moist. Set your crockpot on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours and forget about it. Your house will start smelling amazing in about 1 hour. Leave the lid on and don’t touch until dinner time.
After the 8 hr or 4 hr timer, simply put your crock pot on keep warm. Right before it time to eat, remove the lid and simply stir with a spoon. Your chicken will simply shred very easily. Stir it up real good and mix well. Plate and pair with your favorite veggie. Typically, we put squash or zucchini in as ingredients but today we chose broccoli. I think the broccoli would have been soggy so we air fried it and put on the side. Enjoy!
