Throw a few simple ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning, and arrive home to a comforting meal of Slow Cooker Poblano Chicken!
If you’ve been reading my posts for a while, you will notice I make a lot of Mexican inspired meals. I LOVE dining out for Mexican food, but it can be costly after the three of us order meals and drinks. The last time we ate at my favorite Mexican restaurant the bill total was $45.00! Now that the holiday season is over, I’m making an effort to make more meals at home.
This dish has the flavors of the popular creamy green chile enchiladas, but with more of a kick from the fresh poblano peppers. This chicken and sauce is served over rice instead of making into time-consuming enchiladas. I seriously think this is one of the best sauces I’ve made in my slow cooker. I’m drooling as I write this post, wishing I had more of this meal to eat right now.
This recipe starts with stirring together cream of chicken soup, a little water, poblanos, garlic, green onion and black pepper. Then I add 2 large chicken breasts. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours. Shred up the chicken, stir in the sour cream. Serve over steamed rice. Couldn’t be any easier. If you love this recipe, be sure to try my other best crock pot recipes!

Aubrey Cota says
I love when that happens! Thank you.
Sounds great! Can you use boneless thighs? Would it change the cooking time?

I loved this recipe. I had to make a special dinner for some people from my husband’s church and they only eat chicken when it comes to meat. I made this stove top and blended the cooked poblanos and then added it to cooked, cubed chicken. It was awesome. It was creamy and everyone loved it. Thank you for the recipe. My husband says I need to make it again. I served it garlic rice and some cactus cooked with tomatoes. Yum!
This sounds fantastic!
Hey Aubrey, I am a huge fan of your page and recipes.
Thanks for all the goodness. I am sooooo making this dish, however,
I will leave the seeds in the peppers; the spicier the better for me.
