Mexican Crock Pot Chicken

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by ladypit

I created this to use what I had on hand. My husband loved it and thought the reheated leftovers were just as good as the first night. You can serve this over rice, with tortillas, or with taco chips.

Pretty good. Not as hot as it looks on paper. It can be made on top of the stove too. Remove chicken skin for less oil.
