You know a recipe is good when…your husband ask’s for thirds. Your children eat all their food…by themselves. The left overs are gone the next day, and it’s a hand-me-down. And a hand-me-down of a hand-me-down. All of that happened to be this lovely crockpot tomatillo chicken recipe.
Combine everything in the crockpot except sour cream. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. When done shred chicken and add sour cream. This is a hard recipe to mess up. Feel free to add more or less of your favorite flavors. I tend to be heavy on the lemon and cumin because I just can’t get enough of them! Never walk up to me and say lemon… you might get drooled on :) Serve the chicken and sauce in tortillas.
Cheese Makes It Better
These tortillas better have some grilled cheese on them! You heard me right.. grill your cheese! Melts the cheese and brings out the rich salty flavors of the cheese. So good people. To grill the cheese, place a tortilla on a griddle or non-stick pan over a medium heat. You want to allow the cheese to melt little before the tortilla burns. Once it has started to melt, flip it over. Yes just do it! The cheese will sizzle and melt. Just don’t lift it too soon. When its ready the cheese will no longer stick to the pan. The tortilla gets a little crunchy and the cheese is a melted chewy goodness that is perfect with the sauce chicken and soft avocado. SO good!
This chicken is great on just about anything like tacos (my favorite), burritos, nachos, or over salads (another one of my favorites.) Hope you enjoy!

Serve warm in burritos with grilled corn and rice, in taquitos, or quesadillas. I love it over a salad. This is a hard recipe to mess up. Feel free to add more or less of your favorite flavors. I tend to be heavy on the lemon and cumin because I just can't get enough of them!
