  8. Place 1/2 c. of the chicken mixture on one side of the tortilla.
  9. Fold tortilla in half and press down with medium pressure with a spatula to flatten.

I tried this recipe today and it turned it soooo good! My husband raved about it the entire time he was eating. 🙂

If I were to half this recipe would I still let it cook for the same amount of time? (Made it once already and it was amazing, but still too much food for just my husband and me, even with having it for leftovers the next night)

I’ve currently got this on high with the lid off to boil off the way extra liquid I wound up with. I used one large piece of chicken, though, which may have thrown off the other measurements… I also left out the green chili as I didn’t have them. Seems to be thickening up nicely, though !

I have also made this recipe my own. I skipped the tomato and butter and used a 10oz can of red and green chilies mild. Also, when the chicken is thawed, I leave the chicken in for three hours then shred the chicken and leave it back in for one more hour.

Finally this recipe works well using a slow cooker bag.

How many people does this feed? How many tortillas do you use when you make this (I guess is my question since my husband is teenager eat me out of house and home.)?

Love this recipe. I have it in the crock today!
I like how generous the filling is. It’s been perfect for my husband and I and our 2 small kids in that we end up only eating 1/2 of it for dinner. Then I freeze the other half of the chicken mixture for a super easy 2nd meal at a later date. It freezes and thaws up very well. I just add some extra chili powder to the thawed batch to freshen up the flavors and reheat! Yum yum. Thank you!

About how many pounds of chicken does your 4 equal? Sometimes I get some rather large ones in the package, and was thinking it may be easier to go by weight. Thanks!
