Total Time 4 hours 20 minutes

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 4 hours 0 minutes

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 teaspoons ground ancho chile powder
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 ¾ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts
olive oil, or as needed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa

Steps:

  • Mix chile powder, paprika, onion, garlic, and cumin together in a small bowl.
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Lightly coat with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Coat all sides of chicken with seasoning mix.
  • Pour 1/2 of the salsa in a slow cooker and spread to cover the bottom. Place chicken on top and cover with remaining salsa.
  • Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 4 hours, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  • Shred chicken with tongs and stir thoroughly so it can absorb remaining juices in the slow cooker.

SPICY SHREDDED CHICKEN RECIPE: HOW TO MAKE IT



Spicy Shredded Chicken Recipe: How to Make It image

I love Mexican food, but not the high calorie count that often comes with it. This easy dish is healthy, delicious and a definite crowd pleaser! I like to serve the chicken with warm tortillas, rice, beans and salsa. For an equally awesome dish, you can substitute beef or pork for the chicken. —Heather Walker, Scottsdale, Arizona
