    Slow Cooker Cowboy Chicken follows my strict “set it and forget it 10 minute rule for slow cookers”.  We are all busy, which is why slow cookers and crock pots have been the saving grace for busy families over the decades.

    But does it really save you any time if you have brown meat and do a lot of chopping, or even check on it throughout the cooking process? No!

    Therefore I shy away from slow cooker recipes that take too long. Chicken is ideal for quick crock pot recipes because it takes a while to cook, needs to be cooked all the way through and when cooked slow and low, shreds beautifully.

    As long as it is in a tenderizing sauce, it is really difficult to hurt it. So even if the slow cooker ends up going an hour past when it is done, chances are, your Cowboy Chicken will be just fine.

    Tools for making Slow Cooker Cowboy Chicken:

    Slow Cooker– This is my favorite slow cooker, I like that I can set it for later in the day and it automatically turns off. It also has clasps for the lid so when I travel to parties or potlucks, I can take it with me without channeling my inner MacGyver to make some for the lid.

    Instant Pot– I have adapted all of my slow cooker recipes for the Instant Pot, which is my new favorite thing. Just think, all of those slow cooker recipes ready in just 30 minutes! See instructions on how to make it in the Instant Pot in the notes section below the recipe. Slow Cooker Cowboy Chicken is an easy chicken recipe your whole family will love, packed with corn, potatoes, bean and a zesty taco seasoning! #slowcookerrecipes #easychickenrecipes www.savoryexperiments.com
