Time for another slow cooker recipe!

While I am trying to figure out a way to upload my photos easier I will just have to tell you about my new crock pot and the new recipe I tried out with it! I was picking up Easter pictures at JC Penny and they just happened to be having a sale on crock pots. My old one was OLD, cracked and in desperate need of being replaced. I found a 7 quart with the display that I wanted for $40 regular price was $85, I’ll take it! One of the recipes I made was one that I have not tried before, but a dear friend of mine had made a couple freezer meals for us when I had gotten home from the hospital in December. One of the meals was a mexican chicken meal and it was awesome, only problem was she couldn’t find the recipe, so I was left to recreating it as best I could. I did a little research on pinterest and then just did what I thought sounded best. End result was pretty delicious, even the girls went back for seconds…that NEVER happens. I am glad I stuck it out and created the recipe, this is probably one of my first recipes that I actually made instead of just making changes to something else! Are there any recipes that you had to recreate or remake just from memory and taste?

Instructions
  1. ***I would set your crockpot timer for 6 hours but keep in mind there are steps to be taken at the 5 hour and the 5 1/2 hour marks
  2. Trim most of the fat from chicken but leave it whole, then add it into the crock pot
  3. Add in all other ingredients except the rice, cook for 5 hours on low
  4. At the 5 hour mark pull out chicken, stir the crock pot and continue cooking. Shred the chicken and put it off to the side.
  5. At the 5 1/2 hour mark add in rice and everything in the rice box, if there doesn't appear to be much liquid add in the chicken broth. Keep in mind that the rice is going to absorb a lot of the liquid, and you want there to still be liquid left
  6. Once the 6 hours is up add the chicken back in, stir to mix, and serve. I added my home made salsa on top and that made it delicious. *It was also really good when it was reheated the next day!
