Introduction

For this recipe I use frozen chicken tenders or chicken breasts in my slow cooker. This is a good recipe to substitute beans, veggies, etc. and make it they way you want.
Note: I also have a low sodium version of this recipe that is similar, and tastes good, too!

Ingredients

    5 Frozen Chicken Breasts (or 20 frozen Chicken Tenders)
    1 16 ounce jar Salsa Verde
    2 cans Black Beans
    1 can Sweet Corn
    1 can Diced Tomatos with no salt
    1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
    1 small (3 oz) package of cream cheese

Directions

Place frozen chicken breasts or tenders in bottom of slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients except cream cheese.

Cook on low for 8-10 hours. At this point I remove about 1/2 the liquid because I like my sauce thick, like a stew. You can leave all the liquid if you want a "soup". Add cream cheese, cook on warm setting for 30 minutes, then stir.

This can be served over rice or wrapped in flour tortillas (not included in nutritional info.)

One serving is 1/2 a breast or 2 large chicken tenders.

Number of Servings: 10

    Loved this recipe!! I made a few additions based on other's comments..I added low sod. taco seasoning, cilantro, sliced mushrooms, and used whipped cream cheese. Will def make again. SO easy! (Camo..I think the chicken is supposed to fall apart..it's a stew.) - 11/25/08

    This was SENSATIONAL!!!!! I added about 3 chicken and tomato bouillon cubes. It gave it more seasoning, but not as much sodium. We loved it over the brown rice and had enjoy for two nights!! This was a dream meal for me because it was effortless and not time consuming. Can't wait to eat this again!! - 2/6/09

    I made this over the weekend but I used regular salsa instead of salsa verde and fat free cream cheese. This was excellent!!! I would have never thought to mix those ingredients together. It was even good over steamed rice. - 6/1/09

    I made this recipe about two weeks ago and will be making it again. I used rotel instead of diced tomatoes. It was so easy to fix and the kids and hubby have requested it again. It is tomorrows meal. Thank you so very much for the recipe. - 4/16/09
