And the best part? It. Was. Delicious.
The chicken was so tender it broke apart, making it very easy for the kids to eat. They liked it so much that they did not even complain about the presence of beans and vegetables. Let me say that again- my kids ate chicken, beans and vegetables and they liked it.
Still need convincing? The leftovers made a yummy dip. I imagine they would have also made a kick ass burrito. This dish will definitely be appearing on our menu again.
4-5 boneless chicken breasts, frozen
1 can black beans (15 ounce)
2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
3 limes, juiced
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced (optional)
1 jar of medium salsa (16 ounce)
1 package low fat cream cheese (8 ounce)
Place the frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the cream cheese.
Cook on low heat for 5-6 hours*, until chicken is fully cooked and falling apart. A half an hour before serving, stir to break up the chicken and add the cream cheese (just toss it on top and let it melt).
Serve over rice.
