Slow Cooker Ranchero Chicken

Slow Cooker Ranchero Chicken recipe is the most flavorful chicken I have had! It is a great freezer meal!

This scrumptious Slow Cooker Ranchero Chicken is a great family meal!  I prepared this meal in an afternoon when doing 15 crockpot freezer meals for my family’s dinners. With the start of the school year activities in full swing and a season full of football for my boys, I wanted to make a bunch of prep ahead meals that I could make for my family.

I got busy creating recipes so I could take an afternoon and prep freezer meals to have meals ready to go for my family.  I served the delicious Slow Cooker Ranchero Chicken with shredded cheese, sour cream and some cilantro in a tortilla. I used a 5QT crockpot to cook the Chicken recipe.

To prep as a freezer meal place the ingredients in a labeled Ziploc freezer bag. Lay flat in freezer; when ready to cook that overnight in fridge. Use a 5-6 quart crock pot, and add the contents of the bag. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours then shred chicken and place back in the juices to cook on low for 1 more hour. Use chicken mixture as filling for tacos, enchiladas, nachos, or tostada.

  1. Do you have a recipe for the ranchero,sauce, or a recommendation as to where to buy it? I’m not familiar with it.

  2. I checked today at my grocery store, and they didn’t have Ranchero sauce. Would red enchilada sauce work instead? Thanks!
