Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Enchiladas

Having a nice dinner at home doesn’t mean that you have to spend all day slaying away, chopping and buying stuff to eat. When you think at first that preparing a meal will take a long time, you often restrain from doing so just because you don’t think it can be done in a quick and efficient manner. Nevertheless, there are a lot of things you can do without going through a lot of problems. For instance, choosing to use your slow cooker is the best way to save yourself time while prepping the food. A slow cooker can save you a lot of preparation time, you could even set it up to be ready before you even get home from work.

Once you get a hold of this recipe, you will want to make it every night of the week. Not only is it easy and quick to do, but it is delicious.


Enchilada Sauce ( you either can buy it pre-made or make it at home yourself)

Boneless skinless chicken breasts

Chopped corn tortillas (soft, not chips)

Shredded cheese (in preference, cheddar) 

Olives (Optional)

Coriander (Optional)

Sliced Onions (Optional)

How To Make It

1.Add the chicken breasts to the slow cooker. You could either add some water and expect it to boil while the chicken becomes more tender, or you could start off by adding the enchilada sauce already. 

2. Wait for the chicken and the sauce to mix, and for the entire mix to boil. This way the chicken will become tender and you could use a fork to crumble it, so that it ends up in shreds.

3.Shred the entire chicken until the breasts are no longer whole.

4.Now add the soft corn tortillas. Make sure that they are cut in strips, however you shouldn’t be adding chips, because they will become soggy after a while. 

5.Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix them together (half of the cheese, some olives, coriander, onions). Make sure that they all blend in with the chicken.

6.Cook on low for 40-60 minutes and then add the same ingredients at the top, and have them sit together. This way in every bite you will get a lot of flavors. 

Don’t spend a lot of time preparing something, just make sure you use your slow cooker to speed up the process. Making yourself a snack or a meal should be quick and easy to do!
