Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken Recipe

Dinner doesn’t get any easier than dumping everything in the crock pot or Ninja Foodie and having it ready when you come home from work. Tender shredded chicken served with a side of rice and tortillas in this dish inspired by Cuban comfort food. This is a no-fuss, one-pot meal the entire family will love. Cooking in the RV is so easy with my Ninja Cooking System. This is by far one of my family’s favorite recipes almost as much as the Instant Pot Pulled Pork or the Crock Pot BBQ Hawaiian Chicken
