    HopeJohnJP's Note:

    My friend Abby came up with this one. It is absurdly easy and makes a great base for chicken tacos, pulled chicken sandwiches, a change of pace topping for pierogies, or my husband's personal favorite, chimichanga filling. I buy frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts in 10-lb. bags. No need to thaw: just toss 'em in the crock pot as is.

      Easy and delicious! I used a bottle of Shiner's Bohemian Black Lager beer which gave it an amazingly rich flavor. I used some of the extra strained and seasoned cooking liquid to mash with black beans. Used the chicken and black beans to make tostadas with lots of cheese for my family. My mother hates beer but LOVED this. Now she's gonna have to go buy beer... :D

      This was tasty! We ended up using 2 pkts of Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix for the taco seasoning as my Dad was coming for dinner and dislikes anything with a chili taste. We served it on toasted rolls with a mayo-italian salad dressing mix and roasted red pepper strips. Very good and a perfect meal for a busy day.
