After having multiple kids, a hungry husband and a budding career… I tried to minimize kitchen time and have it ready for the week. The key is preparation! These recipes are simple and easy and you can also change it to your liking! I like to cook a bunch of my scrumptious Mexican chicken and build on it all week. In this Week Night Chicken Recipes, we will be making:
1. Twisted Chicken Tacos
2. Twisted Chicken Enchiladas
3. Chicken Taco Salad/Nachos
4. Twisted Mexican Chicken Casserole
5. Mexican Pasta Dish
The most crucial part again is preparation! To start off all these great recipes, you must first begin with creating your Crock-Pot concoction. This will usually take about 6-7 hours for all the ingredients and yummy juices to soak into the meat. I suggest to do this the night before or before you leave to go to work/run errands:
