Mary's Mexican Crock Pot Chicken

Put semi-frozen chicken breast into the crockpot then mixed one can of enchilada sauce with one packet of taco seasoning mix and poured over the chicken.  It then cooked on low for four hours.  The chicken comes out wonderfully tender.  I added some black olives and to serve we shredded it and placed in flour shells with some rice and cheese.  Super Easy!!
