Happy Halloween!!! What are your plans for tonight? I’m doing my usual of staying home and handing out candy to the cute little trick-or-treaters. It’s so fun seeing all the creative costumes! Mr. Wishes will be helping out at his family’s business as he does every Halloween. His parents own a pizzeria and this is their second busiest night of the year besides Super Bowl Sunday! Before meeting him I never realized this and how popular pizza ordering is on Halloween. It makes sense, though, with parents not wanting to take the time to cook and clean up a whole dinner and are in a rush to get their kids out candy-collecting.
Well, if you’re NOT doing the pizza “thang”, I wanted to provide you with an alternative that is hardly any more work than picking up the phone and ordering a pizza. You just throw it all in the crock pot and let it cook away and it can be ready for you before or after trick-or-treating. And if you happen to live somewhere that is super cold this time of year, like I’m lucky enough to, this will be a good warm-you-up meal to come home to!
*makes a LOT – about 8 servings*
Remove chicken breasts from the soup and shred. Stir shredded chicken back into the soup. You are technically supposed to cook it on low for another 2 hours in the crockpot but you really don’t have to. I never do. It’s very forgiving. You can leave it in longer if you want too.
Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and/or crushed tortilla chips.
