    The boys thought this was wonderful. It was very easy to make. I tweaked it for the oven, as my crockpot was in use by a neighbor and baked it for 90 minutes at 275º. After shredding the chicken, I put the meat back in the casserole dish, and served it on tortillas with refried beans. I'll be making this again!

    Very easy and good. I made with 4 good sized boneless chicken breasts. I had a bit too much sauce so next time I will add another breast or two. There will be a next time.

    This was super easy and lovely. I used boneless, skinless thighs. I couldn't find the dry mix at the store so found a substitute recipe (recipe #306854) which I used. I shredded the chicken and served it rolled up in tortillas with extra cheese, sour cream, and green onions, and recipe #235982 on the side. Oh, and I used cheddar-jack cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

    Easy and tasty! I often use 2 cups of water instead of just 1, and have used taco seasonings in a pinch and always use skinless chicken. My family likes to eat this wrapped up like a burrito, with cheese, sour cream tomatoes and lettuce. Thanks for posting!

    The texture of the chicken turned out perfect, but I thought the sauce was too tangy from the tomato paste. I didn't like this too much to save this recipe.
