Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdea

I love a good crock pot recipe, this one is a big hit with my family. Prep is so quick and they turn out amazing!  If you like a good cream sauce enchilada then this is a recipe you have got to try.

Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdea

You will need

  • 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast (frozen or fresh)
  • 7 oz can of Salsa Verde
  • 10 oz can Rotel Mexican Lime and Cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • dash of pepper and salt

What you need after the meat is cooked

  • 1 8oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 can black beans
  • 2 cups grated Colby Jack Cheese
  • 8-12 medium sized tortillas
  • Green onions or cilantro to garnish (optional)

Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdea

In a crock pot add the chicken, Salsa Verde, Rotel Mexican Lime and Cilantro, Cumin, Garlic and salt and pepper. DO  NOT drain the canned  rotel you want the juice to help cook the chicken.  Cook over medium heat for 4-5 hours, or HIGH heat for 2-3 hours with your lid on, in a crock pot.  At this point the chicken should be fork tender and ready to shred.  Pull the chicken out of the liquid and use two forks to shred the chicken. The chicken will be hot, put it in a mixing bowl and add the cream cheese to it, the cream cheese soften from the heat and enable you to mix it into the chicken.  Taste the chicken at this point and add salt or pepper if needed.

With the “juice” or leftover cooking liquid in your crock pot add the sour cream and mix till well blended. This will create your quick and easy cream sauce.

You can also double the recipe, and make one for the freezer.   Just make as instructed above but don’t bake it yet.  Cover in plastic wrap and foil before freezing.  When you want to cook it allow to thaw before baking and you might need to increase the cooking time by 5-8 minutes.

Does your family like Chicken Cordon Bleu, then here is a Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket recipe that you have got to try! All the tasty goodness in an easy to eat “Hot Pocket” crust.  My whole family loves this recipe.  You can make extra Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket and then freeze them for easy lunch ideas later in the week.

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleu

Recipe Yields 8 Chicken Cordon Bleu Hot Pocket

You will need:

  • 1 cup cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 80z cream cheese softened
  • 1 cups italian blend cheese
  • 2 80z cans of crescent rolls
  • 1 egg whipped (for egg wash)

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleuIf you are in a big hurry you can even use canned chicken.  But my favorite way is to put a chicken breast in the crockpot with a little onion, celery, lemon pepper.  Let it cook then shred it.  You can make up a big batch of shredded chicken and put it in freezer bags for quick meal options.

How to make Hot Pockets, chicken cordon bleu hot pocket recipe #Recipe, #HotPocket #ChickenCordonBleu

In a medium sized mixing bowl stir together the chicken, ham, onions, garlic, parsley, cream cheese and italian cheese.  Open up your can of crescent rolls.  Each can will come with 8 triangle shaped rolls, but you want 4 rectangle rolls. Take your fingers and firmly press the two triangles together to form 4 rectangle rolls.  Divide the chicken ham mixture in half, in the bowl.  Then divide each half into four parts. This will give you 8 portions (to put into your 8 rolls).

Place the chicken and ham mixture on one side of the crescent roll.  Take the other half of the dough and fold it over the top, use a fork to seal the edged and press the top and bottom of the dough together. In a small bowl whisk  egg with 1 tablespoon water, to create an egg wash.  Use a basting brush to brush the egg wash onto the rolls.

Honey Garlic Chicken ~ Crock Pot Recipe

Honey Garlic Chicken

by Tiffany

Put your hands in the air if you love your crock pot! I LOVE when I find a great crock pot recipe or develop one, don’t you?! They just seem to make my sometimes crazy schedule much less hectic. The other night I was thinking about a recipe my mom gave me years ago. The recipe wasn’t for the crock pot and wasn’t even for chicken, buuuut I had an idea and got to adapting. Voilà! Honey Garlic Chicken was born. This recipe got a big thumbs up all around the table. I served Honey Garlic Chicken along side steamed broccoli with sour dough garlic toast, but rice or mashed potatoes would have made a great companion too! Enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 7 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 heaping tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. In your crock pot/slow cooker, whisk together ketchup, honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, onion and red pepper together.
  2. Place chicken breast in crock pot/slow cooker, spoon sauce mixture over chicken.
  3. Cook on low for 5 hours or until chicken easily falls apart.
  4. Remove chicken breast from crock pot. Whisk cornstarch into the sauce mixture in your crock pot/ slow cooker, cover with lid and set crock pot/slow cooker to high. Sauce will thicken after about 5 minutes. Turn crock pot/slow cooker off. Return chicken to crock pot, cover chicken with sauce. Serve.
