sweet salsa shredded chicken enchiladas.

Photobucketthis is two of my favorite recipes rolled into one. dinner was GOOD tonight.

sweet salsa shredded chicken.

4-5 chicken breasts
1 1/2- 2 cups medium salsa {i use kroger brand}
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup peach juice {i used the juice from some canned peaches, but you could also use a can of peach flavored juice or something similar.}

combine salsa, juice & brown sugar. pour over chicken in slow-cooker. cook a few hours until chicken is done. {this is vague because i used frozen chicken breasts and i cooked it about 4 hours on high. so it depends on your chicken and your slow-cooker!} remove chicken, shred, and return to slow-cooker. heat 20-30 minutes. serve in any mexican dish! i've used it in salads, quesadillas, and enchiladas.
