Recipe 40: CAFE RIO SHREDDED CHICKEN (main course, knock off, chicken)

In Utah there is a restaurant called Cafe Rio. They have just the most deliciously amazing shredded chicken. It is legendary. Seriously. This recipe is kind of a knock off, that gets pretty close to the real deal and is simple, delicious  and CROCK POT!!! You cant beat that.  Use this with rice, in a salad, in a burrito. It has so many uses and is simply to die for.  If you cant make it out to Cafe Rio for yourself, try this knock off.
5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 small bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
1 TBSP Chili Powder
1 TBSP ground Cumin
3 Cloves Garlic, minced (Or 3-5 tsp pre chopped from a jar)

cook everything together in a crock pot for 4 hours.
Go through and shred the meat and then cook for 1 more hour.

Tomorrow is the Cafe Rio Rice recipe to go with this chicken.
