Slow Cooked Enchilada Chicken


I’ve thought many times about making enchiladas in the slow cooker, but all I could picture was a soggy, inedible mess of tortillas.  Certainly not very appetizing.  Slow Cooked Enchilada Chicken is the perfect way to have a slow cooked enchilada dinner.  No soggy tortillas here!  This was super tasty and really easy to make.  I hope you all enjoy this Slow Cooked Enchilada Chicken dinner!

Sour Cream


Combine chicken, enchilada sauce, and olives together in a slow cooker.  Cook on low 4-5 hours or high 2-3 hours.  Shred chicken after cooking is done.
