Directions

Layer chicken breasts, taco seasoning, salsa and soup in slow cooker. Cook on high for 4-5 hours. Turn to low until ready to serve.

Make rice and onions 30 minutes before serving meal, add peas and corn last 10 minutes of simmering rice.

Serve whole chicken breast on rice, top with sauce. Do not shred, chicken will be very, very moist!

We made a fresh salad with greens, cucumber, carrots, green bell pepper and garden tomatoes. Also served same vegetables chilled with sprits of olive oil, pepper and 5 herb blend (whatever you like).

$6.99 bottle of pinot noir and ice water with lemon slice.

Watermelon for dessert.

Nutrition info includes rice, but not vegetables.

Makes 2 servings for dinner, and split the last breast to serve two for lunch.

really easy to make for work too!

    Very good!! The only thing I did different was cut the chicken in chunks and put it over the rice and used cream of chicken soup (don't like mushrooms). I will make this again. Thanks Steve!! - 7/31/09
