Last week I got together with some good friends for dinner. We have been trying to get together once a month, and have been doing pretty good! We have made the dinners “pot luck” style so everyone brings something. Shelley had the BRILLIANT idea of making homemade Cafe Rio. Who would have thought? It turned out fabulously, and I will now be making it all the time! Could this deliciousness be any easier? First of all I love crock pot meats, second of all I love Cafe Rio. This would be my second choice at Cafe Rio, not because it isn’t good but just because number one is Copycat Cafe Rio Sweet Pork.
Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken
This Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken tastes just like the real deal. It's delicious. Enjoy it on tacos, in a burrito, or any other way you'd have shredded chicken! Why go out, when you can have your favorites made right at home?!
- 1 small bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
- 1 tbsp. chili powder
- 1 tbsp. cumin
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 5 lbs chicken breast
- Cook all ingredients in a crock pot for 4 hours, shred meat, then cook for an additional hour.
[My 2 Cents]
If you don't have the bottle of Italian dressing, you can also use the seasoning packets of Italian dressing, they work just as good!
