Easy Chicken Soft Tacos

Here is my entry for the August Recipe War. There are only three ingredients in this dish, and it is the BEST! I like to make this on Sundays when I know we aren't going out for lunch after church. I throw it in the crockpot before church, and when I get home, it is ready to eat!

Chicken Soft Tacos
1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts (can still be frozen)
1 pkt. taco seasoning
1 can Rotel tomatoes (I use the mild version)

Lay frozen chicken on the bottom of a crockpot. (If yours aren't frozen, just cut down the cooking time.) Sprinkle the taco seasoning on top of the chicken. Pour the Rotel on top. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 4-6. When done, shred chicken with two forks and serve!

I like mine with flour tortillas, topped with sour cream, cheese, tomato, and avocado. But you can eat yours however you like. If you cannot find Rotel, just substitute one can petite diced tomato plus one small can of green chilies. It will still be under five ingredients with that substitution.

I hope this becomes a staple recipe in your home like it is in mine. By the way, it freezes really well, too!

Shane is going to love this. And I love an excuse to eat sour cream. I think I'm going to like this month's recipes since they are all sure to be really easy.
