Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Shredded In Stand Mixer

 

Here is a great recipe for when you need shredded Mexican flavored chicken for chicken tacos, chicken enchiladas, chicken quesadillas, Mexican chicken tortilla casserole, or whatever recipe that calls for shredded chicken.

Mexican Chicken in Slow Cooker

First you cook the chicken in your Crockpot / slow cooker.  You simply layer your chicken in the crock, sprinkle the seasonings on top and pour in a small amount of chicken broth.  That’s it!  Slow cook until the chicken is done.  These breasts only took a couple hours on low.

Shredding Chicken in Stand Mixer

Allow the chicken to cool a little bit, then place the cooked chicken into the bowl of your stand mixer.  Strain the liquid remaining in the slow cooker crock and pour into the bowl.  Using the paddle attachment, on low speed, stir the chicken and broth until the chicken is shredded.  This only takes a minute.

Now you have lots of delicious Mexican seasoned shredded chicken to use in your favorite recipes!

Shredded Chicken in Stand Mixer

Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts (approx 2 pounds / 1 kg)
1/4 cup taco seasoning
2 tablespoons dried minced onions
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
1/2 cup water

Place chicken in bottom of oiled crock pot.  Sprinkle the taco seasoning, dried onions and bouillon powder over top of chicken.  Pour water into crock.  Cover and cook on low until chicken is cooked thoroughly.  Approximately 2-3 hours on low.  Chicken should flake apart if you stick a fork in it and twist.

Allow chicken to cool for at least 30 minutes.  Place the chicken in the bowl of a stand mixer.  Strain the liquids remaining in the crock and add the strained liquid to the bowl of the stand mixer.  Attach paddle attachment to stand mixer. Turn on mixer on lowest setting.  Stir until the chicken is just shredded.  This takes only about a minute.

Use the shredded chicken in recipes like Creamy Chicken Enchiladas, Mexican Chicken Casserole, Green Chile Mexican Chicken Casserole

Nonstick spray coating
6  6-inch corn tortillas, each cut into 6 wedges
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 cup loose-pack frozen whole kernel corn
1 (16-ounce) jar salsa verde
3 tablespoons light dairy sour cream
3 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup  crumbled Mexican Chihuahua or farmer cheese (4 ounces)   
Light dairy sour cream (optional)   
Snipped fresh cilantro (optional)   
Chopped tomato (optional)   
Jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
Spray four 10- to 12-ounce baking dishes with nonstick coating. Place 5 tortilla wedges in the bottom of each dish. Place remaining tortilla pieces on a baking sheet; bake in a 350 degree F oven about 10 minutes or until crisp and golden. Meanwhile, combine chicken, corn, salsa, the 3 tablespoons sour cream, cilantro, and flour. Divide mixture among dishes. 
Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Arrange baked tortilla pieces atop casseroles. Top with cheese; bake for 5 to 10 minutes more or until heated through. If desired, garnish with additional sour cream, jalapeno slices, cilantro, and tomato.
To bake frozen casseroles: Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F oven for 25 minutes. Uncover; bake about 20 minutes more or until heated through. Top with tortilla pieces and cheese; bake for 5 to 10 minutes more or until heated through. Garnish as above. 
To micro-cook frozen casseroles: Cover microwave-safe casseroles with waxed paper; micro-cook on 30% power, allowing 4 minutes for 1 casserole and 5 minutes for 2 casseroles. Continue cooking, covered, on 100% power until heated through, allowing 2 to 4 minutes for 1 casserole or 3 to 6 minutes for 2 casseroles, rotating the dishes once. Top with baked tortilla pieces and cheese; micro-cook, uncovered, about 30 seconds more or until cheese is melted. Garnish as above.
*Make-Ahead Tip: Assemble casseroles as directed above, except do not top with baked tortilla pieces; place baked pieces in a moisture- and vapor-proof plastic bag. Freeze casseroles and tortilla pieces up to 1 month.
