My kids love tacos and other Mexican food, so when Hood challenged me to create a crock pot dinner dish with sour cream as a main ingredient, I knew exactly what I was going to make. I’m always looking for ways to get them to eat more meat, so I decided to make a slow cooker chicken dish. Between my kids’ busy fall schedule and their aversion to “dry” food, our slow cooker gets a lot of use during the school. The recipe I created, shredded sour cream slow cooker chicken, was a big hit with my kids.
I started with just a few ingredients – a pound of chicken breasts, two tomatoes, a container of sour cream, a package of shredded cheese, salt, and ranch seasoning. After slicing the tomatoes, I placed the chicken, the tomatoes, a cup of sour cream, and a handful of shredded cheese in the slow cooker. Then, I added salt and ranch seasoning to taste. If your kids like taco seasoning, I’d suggest using that instead of the ranch seasoning.
I put the slow cooker on low for about 6 hours – by that point, it should be easy to shred the chicken with a fork. Garnish with additional sour cream, shredded cheese, and cilantro, and serve either as is, or in a tortilla/taco. I served spinach on the side, but this would also be great with beans and rice.
Shredded Sour Cream Slow Cooker Chicken
- 1 lb chicken breasts
- 2 large tomatoes
- A cup and a half of sour cream
- Shredded cheese
- Ranch seasoning or taco seasoning (3+ tablespoons)
- Taco shells/tortillas (optional)
Place the chicken, diced tomatoes, a cup of sour cream, a handful of shredded cheese, salt, and seasoning in the slow cooker. Cook on low for six hours. Shred with a fork and garnish with cilantro, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Serve as is, or in a taco shell/tortilla.
In addition to creating this recipe (and the pesto pasta salad I posted last week), I also hosted and judged a Hood Boston Blogger Cook Off. Featuring 7 bloggers across the Boston area, the cook off was held at the Boston Center for Adult Education. All of the recipes were great (and so different), but Leah’s Kugel won!
