Mexican Chicken

This is one of my absolute favourite meals to make as it is super easy, full of flavour and is freezable so I can make a big batch and the defrost for a night when I don’t feel like cooking. Many of these ingredients I will have in the cupboard or freezer so is also perfect when the fridge is looking pretty bare. I also use this base chicken recipe and serve it many different ways depending on what I am feeling. Sometimes I have it with sweet potato fries and quinoa or in a wrap like a burrito. It is also really good in a baked potato topped with cheese. This recipe also is amazing in a slow cooker as the chicken will really fall apart.
