Three soccer games this week and four games next week for Courtney. I LOVE cheering on my favorite player but having seven games in two weeks is throwing a kink into my schedule - not to mention my dinner planning. Packing up meals to eat at the soccer field isn't always the easy. I've learned the hard way that there are some meals that are best eaten at home and were never meant to be packed and eaten in the stands of a soccer stadium. :)
I recently discovered a new recipe for a high protein, energy packed meal to fuel my soccer player - and her parents. This recipe is super easier to throw together at the last minute as I'm running out the door to try and make it to the game on time. Since the slow cooker does most of the work - there is very little hands on time for this yummy dinner.
Slow Cooker Chicken Taquitos
Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with 2 forks.
Stir in cheddar cheese.
Place 1/4 cup chicken mixture onto each tortilla.
Roll, wrap in foil and bake 10 minutes at 350. Serve warm.
I have to admit that I was a little nervous about cooking chicken breasts in the slow cooker. I was afraid it would dry out and not shred nicely but quite the opposite was true. This chicken was SUPER tender and delicious and shred perfectly. I love the simple recipe and the very limited hands-on time. We gobbled these taquitos up in no time. With a soccer schedule like Courtney has, we will be having these taquitos at another game soon.
