Crockpot Mexican Chicken is an easy diner recipe the the whole family will enjoy!  We love to freeze this and keep it as a meal for busy nights!Crockpot Mexican Chicken is an easy dinner recipe. You can serve it alone or with tortillas.  We like to serve it with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and even Mexican Rice or Refried Beans. You could even add corn, black beans and fresh avocado too!  It is the perfect Freezer Meal.  You simply cook it and then cool and freeze.  I like to double this recipe and then eat it for dinner and freeze the leftovers.  To freeze use any freezer safe container, date and label.

I also like to serve Crockpot Mexican Chicken with:

Gluten Free Tortilla Soup

Avocado Pie


Mexican Fried Icecream

If you use your own Homemade Taco Seasoning it is a great way to ensure this meal to be gluten free!  This is a great stockpile recipe as we often get salsa free!  I like to freeze this recipe too!

  7. Hi do you cook it then freeze it or freeze it till your ready to cook it?

    • Melissa@StockpilingMoms says:

      You can freeze it and then cook it or you can cook it and freeze it – crazy but either way works. I normally cook it and then just reheat. :-)

  8. Have you ever added corn and black beans?
