Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Bowl

Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Bowl

One of my favorite comfort food recipes that is so healthy and full of flavor! It only takes 6 ingredients and because it’s a slow cooker recipe – it’s perfect for those busy days!

NOTE: This chicken makes more than a meal for 2 – but you can meal prep it!

1 large chicken breast (appx 1.2 lbs)

1 jar green chile enchilada sauce (16 oz.)

2 cups rice

1/2 cup red onion, diced

1 avocado, diced

1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped

Seasonings: chili powder, onion powder, salt and pepper

Optional: cotija cheese + sour cream

The recipe:

Add your chicken breast with an entire jar of green chile enchilada sauce, chili powder, and onion powder to a slow cooker. I cooked the chicken on high for 6 hours – but you can do whatever works for you!

During this time, I recommend cooking your rice during this time so that it’s ready to assemble as soon as your chicken’s done.

After your chicken is done cooking, shred and stir in your sauce to get all the yummy flavors captured.

To assemble your bowl, add your chicken to a bed of rice. Top with your diced red onion, avocado & cilantro! Feel free to drizzle in any extra sauce from your crock pot!

Optional: Top with cotija cheese & sour cream for those extra creamy flavors!

Enjoy! xx
