Delicious! This assembles quickly in the crock pot, so it is perfect for those busy days when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. I'm always looking for quick, easy crock pot recipes to use in our RV when we are on vacation, and this recipe will be added to my collection. I served it over brown rice and topped it with Mexican 4-cheese blend, chopped cilantro, and sliced green onions. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add everything except the rice,cheese, and cilantro to the crock pot and stir it well. Make sure the chicken is covered by the mixture. Cook on the low setting for 8 hours.
  2. Near the end of the cooking time, cook the rice and set aside.
  3. After the 8 hours of cooking, remove the lid of the crock pot and stir the mixture with a fork to shred the chicken. By now it should be very tender and should fall apart easily.
  4. Serve the chicken mixture over rice and top with cheddar and cilantro.
