Introduction

This is EASY and quick. You are out the door for work in no time with dinner ready when you get home! This is EASY and quick. You are out the door for work in no time with dinner ready when you get home!
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!
