Pinterest Inspired Wednesday- Crockpot Taco Chicken

It seems like all I have time for nowadays are these Pinterest Inspired Wednesday posts.  I want to post more and have so many things I want to write about but y'all I am burnt out.  I am about to have a mental break down.  In fact, I've come close a few times over the last few days.

And yes, I am complaining.  Last Wednesday was when my train decided to pick up it's pace to get to crazy-town.  It's a long story that I don't have time to go into tonight.  I don't know what the heck God is trying to teach me right now, but last Wednesday I felt like He told me giving up complaining for Lent wasn't the right thing (and pretty much impossible) and instead every Wednesday for Lent I should:

a) Go out of my way to selflessly help someone


b) fast for dinner

And yes, I just realized today is Wednesday and came close to shedding a tear because I can't have dinner tonight.  Especially because I have more of this yummy crock-pot taco chicken in my fridge.

This is the pin that inspired me:

It is so simple!  Just a few chicken breasts, a jar of salsa, and a packet of taco seasoning.  I cooked it on low for about 6-8 hours and shredded the chicken about an hour before it was ready.  Here is how mine turned out:

Yes I love cheese...But the chicken was yummy too!  It really was so good!  I made tacos the first night, but last night I put some of the left over chicken on a sandwich thin bun with a slice of pepper jack cheese and that was yumm-o too!  Two thumbs up!  Will definitely be making this again!
