1 pk tortillas



4-6 chicken breast cooked and pulled apart I like to boil it till almost done and then cool a bit, pull apart and add some seasonings, maybe a tsp of olive oil if it seems dry after adding seasoning. let it set and mix it up as you layer it.



1 lg pack shredded cheese or more



 



tear tortillas and place one layer in crock-pot



add a layer of chicken



add a layer of cheese



repeat finish with cheese



cook on low till all melted.



You can feed just as is or scoop into whole tortillas fold both ends and fold again like a burrito for the older family members.  



I wrap them in tin foil and freeze the extra. Then we can pop one in the oven as a snack.



As the kids grow you can add peppers and onions.

I have one for you:  You can use a whole chicken and skin it if you want to; but I use the chicken thighs that are boneless and skinless.



1 large onion (or 2 small), several stalks of celery (use about 1/2 a bunch) and include the leaves, several cloves of garlic ( use about 4 or 5 depending on size), Mrs. Dash seasoning, 1 can cream of mushroom soup and enough water to almost cover the chicken.



 



Place chicken in the crockpot along with the chopped onion, garlic, and celery.  Sprinkle with the Mrs. Dash (or whatever your favorite seasoning is) over the whole chicken.   Pour the soup over the top of the chicken, and using the soup can add water accordingly.  Cook on low about 6 hours.  Enjoy.  It is very good.

go to crockpot365.blogspot.com and try the "candy chicken" if that doesn't appeal to you i'm sure there are other meals there you will like... and don't worry as long as kids are eating something good you're doing all you can, they go thru spurts where they don't eat much and then they eat everything and anything. my son stopped eating (voluntarily) carrots when he was 4 but he's eleven now and doing somewhat better with the veggies. it's amazing where you can camouflage different foods (mashed in sauces etc.) just keep trying!!

Good Old Homestyle Chicken Soup. Take chicken, put in in the crock pot with a chicken bouillon cube, celery and carrots add water about half full. Cook for about 1 1/2. when done take a bag of egg noodles and place in crock pot turn low and let noodles simmer for 20 min taste to see if soft enough I dont like them over cooked. You may need to add more water the bouillon is kinda salty. Good luck

My 2 year old son is also a picky eater and won't eat anything healthy.  So I gave up, temporarily, and I let him eat chicken fingers - almost every night for dinner.  At least, he's eating something.  They usually grow out of this stage sooner or later.

Chicken thighs, any vegies that he will eat and two cans of Chicken and Corn Condensed Soup. If eat will eat soup add some water, otherwise this will cook a casserole that even my fussy kids eat!

I wish I could help.  My son is such a picky eater, he won't ever eat anything out of the crockpot.  You are ahead of the game.

Take 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut off any extra fat), one bottle of BBQ sauce and 8oz water.

Throw it all in a crockpot, mix. Turn on low and cook 8-10 hours. Stir it every once & while.



The chicken is so tender and juicy. I usually shred the leftovers and put it on sandwiches.
