This is a SUPER easy make-ahead meal. Layer in a crock pot in the following order:
1 can black beans, drained
3 chicken breasts
1 pkg taco seasoning (1-2 Tbsp)
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
Cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6- 8 hours. Before serving, add about 1/2 cup instant rice, let it sit 5 minutes. Shred chicken. Serve in tortillas topped with cheese and sour cream. Yum!

Chicken Broccoli Pie
  • 3 TBLS Butter
  • 3 TBLS Flour
Cook butter and flour together in sauce pan till bubbly. Add pepper. Then add:
  • 1/4 Cup skim milk
  • 1/2 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup any flavor cheese
  • 1-2 cups cooked chicken
  • Lot's of broccoli!!!!
Mix all ingredients till cheese is melted and covers chicken and broccoli. Pour into pie crust. Top with pie crust. Bake at 400 degrees until crust is cooked (30-45 minutes)

Chicken taco chili
1 can diced tomatoes

2 cans rotel tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 can hominy or 1 can whole kernel corn

1 package taco seasoning

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 med onion, chopped

1 lb chicken breasts, boneless, skinless(2-3 pieces)

Put all ingredients, except chicken breast, into crock pot. Stir well. Place uncooked chicken breast on top. Cook on high for 8 hours, low for 10 hours. 30 minutes prior to serving, pull chicken out and shred. Return to crock pot and stir. Cook 30 more minutes.

Chicken Ziti Bake
1 lb Ziti
3 chicken breast, cooked, cubed
2 bell peppers, diced
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese
28 oz crushed tomatoes
1 (15 oz) can of diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried basil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 c. half and half
Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and rinse in cold water. Combine cubed chicken with green peppers, cheese, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Add the chicken mixture to pasta. Place in a 9×13 baking dish and drizzle with half and half. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour or untill cheese is melted and noodles are cooked.

Creamy chicken tacos

3-4 chicken breasts (not completely sure how much, got this recipe by word of mouth from my sis-in-law)
1 c. slasa
1 pkg cream cheese

Put chicken and salsa in crock pot on low for 3 hours. (I actually use tenderloins so you may have to go longer if you use full breasts. Just cook til it's done!) Shred chicken. Cut cream cheese into small chunks and add. Wait about a half hour and stir. Cream cheese should melt right in to make a creamy sauce. Serve on tortilla shells with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes... whatever you like. YUM YUM YUM!!! We always double it so we can have LOTS of left overs!
