First, add the olive oil to the bottom of the slow cooker. Then, add the chicken in a single layer.

Now, add the garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, & chili powder. You will see I added some fresh chopped onions to mine, too.

Now, it is ready to serve! I enjoyed mine as a salad while the hubs made his into tacos.

For my salad, I did a layer of romaine lettuce, then the Mexican chicken, then topped with feta cheese, salsa, greek yogurt, crumbled tortilla chips, & sliced avocado.

And all I can say is YUM.

For my fellow 21 Day Fixers out there: the Mexican chicken itself counts as 1 yellow, 1/2 red, & 1/2 green.

For my additional toppings (minus the tortilla chips) add: 1/2 green (salsa, lettuce), 1/2 red (greek yogurt), 1 blue (avocado, feta).

 

Enjoy!
