This green chile chicken made in the slow cooker is super easy to make and so unbelievably flavorful! It is perfect served on top of rice or as a filling for tacos, enchiladas, or burritos.

Lay the chicken breasts flat on the bottom of the slow cooker. Cover with the green chilis, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Cover and set to high for 3 hours.
At 2.5 hours, open the lid and use forks to shred the chicken and mix it with the juices. Then lay the cream cheese on top of the shredded chicken and replace the lid and continue to cook on low for 30 more minutes.
