Recipe: Crock Pot Chicken

March 26, 2009

A second simple recipe for you. Sort of a newly launched blog bonus. No pictures with this one either, something we plan to change in the future. We didn’t actually make this recipe this week, or this month actually. Not sure when the last time we made it was. Still, it’s a favorite. That’s mostly because it’s simple. This has even fewer ingredients than the Mexajita Chicken. All you need is a package of chicken breasts, a large bottle of salsa, a package of taco seasoning, and a slow cooker.

The chicken here is also tender, and if you let it cook long enough it will fall apart. Makes it great for tacos. That’s usually how we eat it. It would be good over rice, too. The salsa cooks down and can get a pretty intense flavor. A little of it can go a long way. Also, a bottle of salsa leaves a lot of sauce. You will probably have to throw away some of it. We always do. We can never seem to eat all of the sauce before the chicken is gone.

INGREDIENTS

  • A package chicken breasts, fat trimmed
  • A large bottle of salsa
  • A package of taco seasoning

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Pour taco seasoning on top of chicken.
  3. Pour bottle of salsa on top of it all.
  4. Set slow cooker on high and cook for six hours.

*A NOTE: The original recipe calls for a scoop of sour cream in the sauce at the end to finish it. We have tried it. It’s good, but if you are wanting ot watch your calories use low-fat or no-fat sour cream. Or leave it out altogether. We don’t ever seem to miss it when we go without.

UPDATE: I am told that I was mistaken about the addition of the sour cream to the sauce. I thought it was the recipe that called for the sour cream in the sauce. Apparently that was my wife’s idea. I should have known. She’s brilliant.
