    Thanks Gayla, this gives me something new to try. I feel like I am in a cooking rut here lately so this will give the guys something new.

    I make something very similar to this, except I cook and shred the chicken first, and then use the mixture to fill soft taco or burrito tortillas.

    I prefer this one in a sautee pan on the stove range... chicken seems to be more moist that way... I do it with dark/thigh meat... I've found the crock pot toughens things up if sitting too long in the juices.

    What's great about this recipe is it's very versitale. Use it as is over ric and serve a side salad. Use it as a filling for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas or quesadillas, etc. Use it as a protein packed salad topper with fresh sliced avocados. Use it as part of a nice Mexican soup. You can use it and stretch it in so many ways, one big crock pot of this will last many different meals. It would freeze nicely too. This is a very handy freezer pull. Thanks for the share Gayla!
