    That crockpot recipe looks awesome! I love making things in the crockpot. last year I made this kidney bean sweet potato stew with peanut butter (sounds weird, I know) but it was incredible!! I am going to make it again and I’ll post the recipe.

    Everyone is all about the crockpot these days. I bet it’s especially good for soups and chili.

    That sounds delicious! I don’t have a crockpot, but I do have a pressure cooker (from my best friend – apparently it’s a traditional engagement gift in Spain!) but it’s a bit different, and cooking chicken breasts in that is a mistake I won’t make again. Definitely better with stewing meats and beans!

    I’ve won the odd Β£10 over the years. We used lottery tickets as wedding favours, and not one person won a thing!

      I don’t think I’ve ever used a pressure cooker.

    I LOVE the crock pot.

    There’s a Mexican pizza recipe similar to yours – you just layer corn tortillas, salsa, beans, chicken (cooked) and shredded cheese, and cook on low for about four hours.

      That’s a cool idea to put the tortillas in there too…Do they get soggy?

    This looks and sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try it. I won $80 a couple of months ago on the lottery.

    I made this tonight, exactly the way you described. Except I used corn tortilla’s instead of flour. It turned out great. My kids LOVED it. You were right on with the corn too! Yummy

      That’s so great!! I’m glad you liked it. Was yours sweet too?

    Just made this today. I deviated from the recipe and used leg quarters (bone in) – we’re trying to use the food we have in the freezer right now, and that’s what I had! The flavor was terrific, but it did not absorb the liquid – stayed much more soup like. We still loved it, I just used a slotted spoon to drain off the liquid & it was yummy!

      That’s great! Glad you tried it. I think part of the liquid problem was the fact that you used leg quarters. Using the boneless chicken breasts and shredding the cooked chicken soaked up most of the liquid!

  8. Alice

    I totally agree. It was frozen when I put it in, or I would have removed the bones. It still would have been “wet” due to the dark meat, but it might have helped.

    My kids & husband loved it! This will be going into my crockpot rotation, and we’ll stick with the boneless / skinless breasts to make it more healthy!

    Oh, and I’ve won random odds & ends of $$ in the lottery.
