I love to cook… except when I don’t wanna. Makes sense, right? After a busy, exhausting day, I just wish dinner could make itself and serve itself to me along with a cold Diet Coke.
Since my food is dumb and cannot prepare itself, this recipe is the next best thing! Somewhere around 2pm I toss some ingredients into my Crockpot and then Voila! Dinners magically ready at 6pm!
Want to make this same magic happen in your own kitchen? Then you’ll love this quick and easy dinner recipe for Creamy Salsa Chicken.Print
1 pound chicken breast tenders (I buy them already sliced into tenders, or take two whole chicken breasts and butterfly them open, then slice into strips)
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup chunky salsa
8 ounces cream cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Place the raw chicken tenders into the bottom of a slow cooker.
2. Pour the corn, black beans, and salsa over the chicken in the slow cooker.
3. Place lid on the slow cooker and set to cook on low for 5 hours or high for 3 hours.
4. When the chicken has fully cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and shred it with forks. Add it back to the slow cooker along with the cream cheese and cook for an additional 30-45 minutes.
5. Stir well.
Serve with Spanish rice and tortillas. Makes 6 servings.
Your family will love this yummy dinner! If you have any leftovers, try serving them for lunch the next day. We loved creamy salsa chicken nachos!
