Cafe Rio chicken {a recipe}

Day 1 - Pants: Target, Shirt: Rue 21, Jacket: Wet Seal, Wedges: Soda, Necklace: Rue 21


Dave and I are completely obsessed with Cafe Rio. The only problem is we live in Texas. Texas doesn't have Cafe Rio. So we brought Cafe Rio to our kitchen! It's such an easy recipe and it tastes just like Cafe Rio chicken.

2 lbs chicken breasts
1/2 a small bottle of zesty Italian dressing
1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 pkt ranch dressing mix (mixed with 1/2 cup of water)
1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 Tbsp. ground cumin
 Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on High 5-6 hours OR on Low 8 hours.
Shred with fork and serve in salads, burritos, tacos…etc.
 You can also double or triple this to make extras for freezing. Then simply thaw and reheat for a fast and delicious meal.

We made ours into a salad and it was absolutely divine! Try it, you'll thank me later.

 (I forgot to buy salad toppings, that's why it's so boring looking)
