Salsa Chicken Dance

I get tired of cooking and eating the same thing week in and week out. Tired of it, I tell you. My family is not picky eaters at all. And really except for veggies I’m not picky either. I could very happily do without meat but I need protein.

I do know there are very good alternates to meat for protein but I like easy and I don’t like to wonder if I’m getting enough protein. So we eat meat.

Yesterday I was befuddled about what to make for supper. I had made extra roast beast (thank you, Dr. Seuss!) but didn’t want just leftovers. I wanted to make something wonderful. I contemplated home-made hash-browns, eggs, sausage and possibly pancakes.

Then I hit pay dirt! Just before noon I was flipping through Kathi Lipp’s book, “The What’s for Dinner Solution” and I shrieked “EUREKA!!!”

I loaded the girls in the van for a quick run to Target for a couple of things we needed for the recipe. At home we tossed it all in the crockpot and 6  hours later we were dining in style.

Salsa Chicken!

Believe me it looked and smelled a lot better in person than it does in that picture. It’s a cinch to make, takes almost no time at all in preparation. And smells divine!! Tastes even better!

The recipe:

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts.                            32 ounces (4 cups) of you favorite salsa
1 drained can of corn.                                                      1 drained can black beans.

Put all in your slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours. 30 minutes before you plan on eating, shred the chicken.  Continue cooking for 30 minutes. Serve over rice (spanish rice would be delicious). Add some sour cream and OoOoOoOoO-LaLa! It would also be tasty rolled up (with the rice) in a tortilla. Or just eat it with your favorite taco condiments. Eaten with tortilla chips is also good!
