'Cafe Rio' Chicken


This is a copy-cat version of Cafe Rio's chicken, and it is HEAVENLY! It's another one of those amazing crock pot meals, I just love. It is so flavorful and your house will smell so good as it cooks! This chicken is perfect to use in tacos, burritos, and on salads. You will love it anyway you choose to eat it!





Cafe Rio Chicken

2 pounds boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup Zesty Italian Dressing
1/2 tbs minced Garlic
1 ( 1 oz ) packet Ranch Dressing Mix  (mixed with 1/2 cup of water)
1/2 tbs Chili Powder
1/2 tbs ground Cumin

Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on High 5-6 hours OR on Low 8 hours! Shred with fork and serve in salads, burritos, tacos.. whatever you want! So easy, So good!

So what is a "small" bottle of dressing? And what size packet? I used 8 oz of dressing (smallest bottle in my store was 16 oz), and a .4 oz packet of ranch dressing mix (my store had 3 sizes, .4, .75 and 1 oz), and it was too zesty tasting and wasn't the color of yours (it was the color of zesty dressing,not ranch).

I made these last week and I didn't care for the zesty Italian wafting through the house and wasn't sure the chicken would turn out good. Boy was I wrong! This stuff disappeared in about 8 seconds with homemade taco shells, cotija cheese, cilantro, tomatoes and avocado. Yum!
