Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2-16 oz. cans of sweet corn, drained
    1-16 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1-16 oz. jar of salsa (mild-hot, your preference)
    3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 cup low fat or fat free shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

Combine corn, black beans and 1/2 cup of salsa in the slow cooker.
Place chicken breasts on top.
Pour remaining salsa over the chicken.
Cover and cook 7-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.
Sprinkle with cheese to serve.
Makes 6 nice size portions.
(The first time I made it it got dry so I didn't drain the corn the second time and it turned out just fine - depends on how hot your slow cooker gets on the low setting).
ENJOY!!

    I saw this recipe on another website with one variation. 30 minutes before serving, throw in an 8 oz pkg oif reduced fat cream cheese instead of the shredded cheese. It's delicious. You can also shred the chicken and eat it as a dip with baked tortilla chips. Yum - 1/17/09

    This was a delicious recipe. I loved it. It makes a ton, so the only thing I might change is the amount of ingredients since it is just my husband and me.

    Very filling! - 1/6/08

    VERY YUMMY! I served with some sour cream. I think the salsa you use makes the difference- choose the HEAT that you like. Canned foods are high in sodium so choose no salt added corn or use frozen! Also, fat free cheese is higher in sodium than low fat, so I always choose low fat! HAPPY EATING! - 12/10/07

    i used Newman's pinapple salsa and added some fresh pineapple juice to the mix. The chicken was moist and flavorful. It added some extra calaries though! - 2/8/09

    Delicious! I only used 1 can of corn, and threw in some black olives. Had it over some brown rice. Wonderful. The apartment smelled wonderful when I walked in the door after work/working out too! :) - 2/10/09

    It was very bland as is. You need to add spices or it's just blah. We added cilantro, cumin, pepper, and garlic for spices. I also added an onion and stirred in a little bit of cooked brown rice. - 3/19/10

    DELICIOUS! I added some fresh vegetables (red onion, orange, yellow, red peper), about 1 tbsp of cilantro and chili powder, 1/2 cup vegetable stock (I like it juicy). I also cooked with rice. Put some Mexican cheese and fat-free sour cream in the end. Yum yum... - 1/31/10

    It was pretty good, but not the best. I used the leftover chicken and corn/black bean mixture for layered chicken taco casserole the next night. THAT was really good. - 9/19/07

    So easy to make and loved that it was full of protein. We served it with a dollop of sour cream......yummy!! I thought it was very tasty and would make it again, but my husband thought it was on the bland side. Maybe I'll try it again with a different salsa. - 8/30/07

    Very nice, swapped out beans for peppers, left out the cheese and used frozen instead of canned sweetcorn - which solves the dryness issue, but was a hit with fussy eaters - 8/23/10

    Good and easy recipe, but after I rinsed the beans to reduce the sodium it didn't have much flavor. I think that taco seasoning would have done the trick. I also used frozen corn instead of canned corn because it was what I had on hand. Did not add cheese, could have added flavor with cheese too. - 7/21/10

    Really good - the family devoured it!!! Made more than it called for - added chili & garlic powder and, fresh grnd. black pepper. I shredded the chix when done, an added sour cream. We ate it with tortilla chips, and a few drops of hot sauce - already have requests for an encore! - 1/25/10

    Just made this for dinner tonight. My husband and I really liked it. I shredded the chicken and cut up a couple of corn tortillas and baked them to have on the side. We also put a dollop of FF sour cream on top. It was like chicken nachos. I will definately make this again! - 12/7/09
