  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/8 tsp dried dill weed

  1. Pour chicken broth into slow cooker. Add in the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours for thawed chicken and 5-6 hours for frozen chicken.
  2. Remove the chicken and discard the broth. Shred the chicken and add it back into the slow cooker.
  3. In a bowl stir together the mayo, sour cream, picante sauce, cajun seasoning, parsley, dill and cumin. Stir the sauce into the chicken.
