RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) - The 2013 CBS 6 Healthy Lifestyle EXPO kicks off Sat., Feb. 2nd at 10AM continuing until 4PM with ‘Hungry Girl’ Lisa Lillien and Fitness Expert, Stepp Stewart at the Richmond Convention Center. This morning, we sampled one of Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien's easy to make and enjoy recipes - this one is a crock-pot favorite - ' Slow Cookin’ Mexican Chicken'. Shayne Rogers shows us how it’s done…


Slow-cookin Mexican Chicken

1 c. canned crushed tomatoes

½ cup of roasted red peppers, drained and chopped

¼ c. canned diced green chiles

1 T dry taco seasoning mix

½ T garlic powder

¼ crushed red pepper

1 ½ pounds raw boneless chicken breasts, halved

Salt, optional

Place all of the ingredients except the chicken into the bowl of a crock pot, stir until thoroughly mixed.  Add chicken and coat well.  Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours until chicken is fully cooked.

Remove the chicken to a bowl and shred with two forks.  Return the chicken to the pot and mix well with the sauce.

You can use this chicken to make tacos, quesadillas, wraps or salads.
