Sherry's Crockpot Mexican Chicken

Submitted by: IMSHERRY7

Introduction

Super easy crock pot recipe...less than 5 minutes of prep time. This is a healthy recipe, other than the sodium. You can decrease that by using low-sodium taco seasoning.

Ingredients

    3 lb bag of frozen boneless chicken breasts
    1 packet taco seasoning
    3 cups thick & chunky salsa (I use the Walmart brand of salsa that has black beans & corn in it)
    1 bag (24 oz) Trader Joe's frozen 3 Bell Pepper Blend
    Sprinkle of garlic powder

Directions

Place frozen chicken breasts in crock pot. Sprinkle each one with taco seasoning, and spoon some salsa on each one. Sprinkle with garlic powder, to taste. Dump entire frozen bag of peppers on top.

Cook in crock pot on low for 8 hours.

When finished, you can eat as is, or shred it for chicken tacos, chicken burritos, taco salad, nachos, top a baked potato, etc. This makes quite a bit, so you'll have leftovers for another day.

Note: I put my frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot. I've been doing this for years, and I haven't gotten sick or killed anyone yet. ;) If you are nervous about food safety, simply thaw your chicken first, and decrease the cooking time accordingly.
