- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Onion Powder

In your crockpot, add 4-6 chicken breasts. ( 1/3 lb of meat per person is about right for this recipe). Add the salsa, cream cheese, green chillies, garlic powder, garlic powder and half of the salt and pepper. Stir gently to coat the chicken with sauce.
Cook on high for about 4-6 hours depending on if your chicken is fresh or frozen. When the chicken is done, it should be easily shred with 2 forks.
Shred the chicken in the creamy sauce. Stir the chicken and sauce until the sauce is creamy and the chicken is covered in the creamy sauce. Enjoy!
This chicken is great on tacos, burrito bowls, quesadillas, and in enchiladas!
