Ok….I know, I know, I know….this could be a great meal for an entire family as well as for just 2, but tonight it was great for JUST US!! My in-laws had the kids last night and tonight so I thought that I would make a very delicious yet simplistic meal that I have not had in a while.
You will need:
1 lb of Chicken Breast
1/2 packet of McCormick Mesquite Grill Mates Seasoning
2 Large Potatoes (We used the convenient ones that are wrapped for the microwave, but honestly you can wrap a potato in plastic cling wrap and put them in the microwave and it will cook up just as well. It’s the same thing really )
1/8 cup oil
1/8 cup water
Bag of romaine salad
Your preferred salad dressing
Mesquite Chicken Baked Potato
I placed the chicken in the crock pot with the seasoning, oil, and water. Then, I stirred it all together to make sure all chicken was well seasoned. Cook on Low for 4-6 hours. The chicken usually shreds wonderfully and I am able to cut any fat off that may still be on there. Most of the time the fat cooks out though.
Cook the potatoes in the microwave according to the directions. Then I just slice the potato, butter it up, season it to taste with salt and pepper, place your mesquite shredded chicken on it, and cover it with shredded mozzarella
cheese. Serve it with a side salad with some chicken atop. Enjoy.
