Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Shredded With Mixer

 

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

Stuffed Chicken Marsala – Olive Garden Official Recipe

Cheese Stuffing:

1/2 cup smoked shredded cheese (provolone or gouda)
8-oz package mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
2 Tbsp sun-dried tomato flakes (drain first if in oil)
1/3 cup green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sour cream (6 oz)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Sauce:

1 small onion, cut in half and thinly sliced lengthwise
24 fl oz Marsala wine
8 fl oz heavy cream
2 small containers button mushrooms, thinly sliced (6 cups)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 fl oz olive oil
2 cups all-purpose flour

Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Combine all cheese stuffing ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Butterfly thickest section of chicken breasts to create 2 lobes. Pound each breast between 2 sheets of plastic wrap until ¼” – ½” thick. Place flattened chicken breasts on a plate and place desired amount of stuffing on one lobe of each chicken breast. Gently press stuffing down so it resembles a hockey puck. Fold over other lobe of chicken breast; does not have to seal.

Heat large sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and heat until shimmering. Place flour in a shallow pan and season to taste with salt and pepper. Dredge stuffed chicken breasts in flour, shaking off excess. Saute chicken breasts with preheated oil, cooking until each side is golden brown. Remove chicken from pan and place in a baking dish. Bake for 10-20 minutes, or until juices run clean and center of chicken reaches 165°F.

Add onions to sauté pan, and stir to loosen chicken drippings. After 2 minutes, add mushrooms and sauté until onions are translucent. Deglaze pan with Marsala wine – make sure to incorporate drippings from bottom of pan. Heat wine to a simmer and add heavy cream. Simmer on low heat until reduced by half.

Place cooked chicken breasts on a plate and top each with onions, mushrooms and sauce.
Serve with your favorite garlic mashed potato recipe.
