Pour mixture into 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. In same bowl, mix tomatoes, soup and chiles; pour over chicken in bag. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible.

Expert Tips

  • For ultimate creaminess, make sure cream cheese is completely soft before adding to the chicken mixture.
  • Make a mental note of how many chicken thighs came in your package before placing them in the slow cooker. Then you can be sure you get them all when it’s time to shred them.
