Chicken Azteca {Crockpot Recipe!}

Crockpot Chicken Azteca ~ Our Cozy Den

Chicken Azteca is one of my favorite recipes! Not only is it SO easy and SO delicious, it’s cheap, filling, & healthy too! It’s also gluten free and sugar free, and can be made grain free/dairy free simply by omitting a few of the extras!!

Here’s how to make it!

  • 1-2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (depending on size)
  • 2 cans of black beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 2 cups of enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups of dry brown rice
  • shredded cheddar cheese for topping

It’s really easy, get ready…

1. Put the chicken in the crockpot.

2. Dump the beans (drained/rinsed), corn (drained), and enchilada sauce on top. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. Crockpot Chicken Azteca ~ Our Cozy Den

3. Where there is about 30 minutes left, take your chicken breasts out and let them cool slightly. While that’s happening, start your rice on the stovetop (or in a rice cooker if you have one). Shred the chicken with a fork and stir it back into the crockpot. Crockpot Chicken Azteca ~ Our Cozy Den

4. Time to eat! In a bowl, layer rice, chicken mixture, & cheese. Yum, yum! Crockpot Chicken Azteca ~ Our Cozy Den


I love that this recipe feeds all six of us with only 1 or 2 chicken breasts, WITH plenty of leftovers (or enough to serve guests as well)! And it’s super adaptable for people with dietary restrictions — like I have PCOS, so I can’t have carbs, so I just have mine without rice. I have a friend whose son is dairy free, so he just had his without cheese. Easy!
