Cafe Rio Chicken

This is a knock off Cafe Rio recipe. Which I'm happy to announce Cafe Rio will be opening two more locations in the D.C. area by the end of the year! The chicken had awesome flavor and was so easy to just throw in the crock pot. I made pico de gallo , Cafe Rio dressing ( see recipe above), shredded cheese, and sour cream. This chicken is great on salads too with the dressing.

**After making the Cafe Rio pork and chicken, Brad and I both agree the pork is better. The chicken is still great and really yummy. I will post the pork recipe soon. Let's just say it's soaked in Dr. Pepper. Could life get any better? :)


1 small bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
1 T chili powder
1 T cumin
3 cloves garlic—minced
5 lbs chicken breast

Cook all together in a crock pot for 4 hours, shred meat and cook 1 additional hour.
