I love using this chicken in tacos, enchiladas, or on nachos. Really any sort of Mexican-inspired dish!



3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
10 ounce can mild green chile enchilada sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder


Place chicken in slow cooker.

Pour enchilada sauce over top, sprinkle with seasoning and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4. Remove chicken, shred with two forks, and return to the sauce.


Great for filling tacos, enchiladas, burritos or on top of your favorite cooked grain.
