Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos

This is an adaptation of the Salsa Chicken recipe I previously posted. It is very similar but goes in the crock pot (slow cooker) to make a fabulous topping for nachos. I hoped it would turn out well … and believe me, it did. It is delicious and will become a regular in my house!

Ingredients (serves 4):

1 tbs olive oil or veg oil – and a little extra to coat the crock pot

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 packet taco seasoning (I used a reduced/low sodium variety)

2 cups salsa

shredded cheese to serve

sour cream to serve

Mixing the oil & seasoning then marinating the chicken

Directions:

Mix together the oil and ½ the taco seasoning in a container (preferably with a lid) that is big enough to contain the chicken breasts

Coat the chicken with the oil/seasoning mix on both sides and leave covered in the fridge to marinate for at least an hour (I actually marinated mine overnight)

Chicken breasts in the crock pot & covered with the salsa

Coat the inside of the crock pot (slow cooker) with a little oil then put in the marinated chicken breasts

Cover the chicken with the salsa

Bake on low for 3 hours or until the chicken comes apart easily

Remove chicken using a strainer (there will be quite a bit of water once cooked) and place in a large bowl to then pull apart with a fork

Chicken removed from crock pot & then pulled apart

Sprinke the rest of the taco seasoning packet onto the chicken and mix through

Serve on top of some nachos, sprinkle with cheese and mircowave or bake in the oven on a medium heat until the cheese has melted

Dollop sour cream on the top and enjoy!

    This looks delicious!! I’ve only just started to work out how to use my slow cooker- they’re so popular here, aren’t they? I made pulled pork in mine last week 😄
