Crockpot Chicken Chili

Looking for something inexpensive, easy and delicious for dinner?  Don't worry - I gotcha.

I made this dish for a freezer meal group I'm a part of.  You can read more about how it works HERE.  I ended up making seven meals which I put together in gallon sized Ziploc's and froze flat.  Nice and compact for storing in the freezer.

This chili is really flavorful and has just the right amount of spices that everyone will love.  It's great as a chili but also works well in tortillas as tacos.  It would make a good chili to put on top hot dogs or nachos.  Assembling the meal is simple and cooking it is even easier.  Flick a switch on your crockpot and walk away.  What's easier than that?!?

Here's how it's done -

  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 c. salsa (I used Pace )
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cans chili beans in sauce
  • 1 Tb. oregano
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

If making freezer meals - place all ingredients into Ziploc bag and freeze.  When ready to cook remove from bag and place in crockpot (frozen or thawed).  Cook on high for 4 hours until chicken easily shreds with a fork.



  1. YUMMY. I really want to do a freezer meal group. You've inspired me! :)

    1. It's really so much fun and saves me so much time in the kitchen! Go for it! :)

  2. Found you from the YHL forum.

    This looks soo delicious! If only Willy Wonka would have mass produced those food monitors!
