oops..I forgot. I used my version of "Emerils Essence" seasonings instead of taco!(I have the recipe) And I also used med/hot salsa, fresh cilantro and green onions as garnishes. I think that the herbs make a real difference in the outcome.

Fawn

Hey, has anyone tried this with yogurt instead of sour cream? I use FF plain yogurt in most everything, and am planning on making it for company this weekend, and I'd prefer not to use the sour cream if I don't have to.


Things I'm Most Looking Forward To:

No more back fat!

More E-N-E-R-G-Y!

Buying stylish, not oversized clothes

Packing smaller clothes

Living long enough to see my grandchildren grow up

Having a stable wardrobe

Ability to handle cravings

The END of binging!

A healthier me!

I made this last night and WOW was it a hit! My invited my parents over for dinner. I made a double batch, but still only used one pkg of taco seasoning. Cooked it on high about 3.5 hours. Mmmm...made the kitchen smell so good! Took the chicken out and shredded it. Served chicken and sauce with tortillas, shredded lettuce, black olives, mushrooms, finely shredded Mexican cheese, and ff sour cream. YUM! It was a hit with the whole crew, and DH said to keep the recipe at the top of my list.

 

Run home and try this one tonight!

I'm making this again. I will only use 1/2 of the Taco seasoning. I do remember it being a little too salty last time...I will probably only cook it on high for 1 hour and then 3 hours on low..I want to make sure the chicken will done but not dry... :D

I just have to bump this recipe up. It is just great....added a cup of brown rice to it and 1 cup of water. The sauce was just delish!!!!

Sorry for the cross-post....

 

-----------------------------------

 

I made it this morning and it's YUMMY. A couple of people asked about making it w/o a crockpot. I did that this morning and it worked out just fine for me :D I also made a couple of other modifications. This is what I did:

 

I put the salsa and chicken in a corningware dish with a glass lid. I add a little extra water (maybe 1/2-3/4cup?) to the salsa so that the chicken had something to cook in.

 

I cooked the chicken and salsa covered at very low heat-(about 250) until it looked done. I was using extra thin chicken breasts, and they probably cooked for about an hour. Thicker breasts may take longer.

 

I took the dish out of the oven and lifted the chicken out into a separate dish. I didn't have any cornstarch so I used a little flour to thicken the sauce....then stirred in the sour cream. I think because I had added some water to the salsa, then thickened with flour I had A LOT of sauce. So much so that I reserved about 1cup on the side, and poured the rest over the cooked chicken.

 

I froze the extra sauce, so I will have something quick to use to top some chicken breasts some time in the future....cooking for 1 :D

 

The chicken came out very tender, I couldn't wait to have some for lunch because it smells marvelous.

 

Try it!

Hi,

 

I made this for a work potluck Saturday. It was the hit of the meal. Well besides the tamales. No one could believe it was a WW recipe. I have it printed out to take to work tomorrow along with cola chicken which is another favorite of mine.

Of course, I decided to make this today........but too late to put in the crockpot :rolleyes: I cooked it on the stove, and can I just say, my oldest DS(17) came running down the stairs when it was almost done, and said "WOW, that smells great, when will it be ready????" It was a big hit. A few posts up, someone asked about using a whole chicken. I don't know why you couldn't do this with a whole chicken, I am gonna try it next week.

I usually make it with cut up pieces from a whole chicken. Just watch for bones. That's my families only complaint. The flavor is the same.

Very good. I served it with brown rice and poured a little of the sauce on the rice. It will be "what for dinner" at my house again.

 

I love crockpots.

I didn't have any salsa, I know, how can a Ww girl be out of salsa, so I used rotel dice tomato and green chilies and it was BETTER than the salsa one I made, I forgot about the corn starch the 2nd time, and didn't miss it. It was awesome. Thank you for the recipe.


IF it is to be, it is up to me.

Just had this very delicious chicken! I personally like it without the sour cream sauce. Very yummy, and would do it again!

I don't know how many of you have a Don Pablos (mexican restaurant) around you, but this tastes just like their chicken soft tacos! Delish!! I think next time I might try cutting the chicken up and putting it in a soft taco shell!! Yum! Let me know if any of you try this first!!

Want to make this recipe and don't have the taco seasoning on hand? here is a simple recipe I have used:

2 Tsp. chili powder

1 1/2 Tsp. paprika

1 Tsp. onion powder

1/2 Tsp. salt

3/4 Tsp. garlic salt

1 Dash red pepper

This is equal to one pkg. of taco seasoning. If you wanted to cut down on the salt, use garlic powder instead of the garlic salt.
