Spicy Ranch Shredded Chicken

I love my crock pot.  Isn’t it great to put a bunch of ingredients in the pot in the morning and it’s ready for dinner?  So convenient.  This recipe is on quite a few websites in a few different versions as Cafe Rio Chicken, this is my spin.  Use this flavorful chicken in so many ways, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, salads, nachos, stir in mayo and have chicken salad sandwiches, use in any casserole that calls for cooked chicken, etc.  The recipe makes enough to put it to use for a few meals, handy!  Grab a tortilla…

3-4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenders
1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup water
1 cup Italian salad dressing
1 cup picante sauce (mild, medium, or hot)
juice of half a lime

Whisk together dry ranch dressing mix and water.  Add Italian salad dressing, picante sauce, and lime juice.  Put chicken in crock pot, pour sauce over top.  Cook on High 5-6 hours or Low 8 hours. Shred with forks and serve.
