Easy Chicken Chili

This recipe was inspired by my friend Phylicitee. Her and her family had us over for dinner last week and this was what she made – Chicken Chili. It was so perfect I just knew I wanted to make it. She said that she put all of her ingredients in a crock pot, laid the chicken breasts on top, cooked it all day (low or high I don’t know), then shredded the chicken right before serving. I don’t always think that far in advance so this is a sped-up chicken chili recipe.

For those of you who are signed up via e-mail, sorry about resending my last 2 posts-I’m still trying to figure this stuff out. Also: I updated my chocolate cupcake frosting recipe, will soon be posting a pancake, hamburger bun, and blackberry cobbler recipe, and am currently working on flour tortillas. …Just a few things to look forward to!
