This is one of the most simple recipes I know of. Only five ingredients, and those five go (almost) straight from the grocery store into your crock-pot. The beauty of a recipe like this is that you don't have to spend a lot of time to prepare it, and once it's done, you have home-cooked meals ready to go for several nights. It makes at least 8 good-sized servings.
Once it's ready, it can be dressed up or dressed down as you like! It can also be converted to a taco soup!
Here's the basic recipe:
2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenders, frozen
1 can black beans
8 ounces (canned or frozen) corn
16 ounces (one deli container) fresh salsa of choice (as hot or as mild as you like!)
4 wedges of Laughing Cow lite cheese
Drain and rinse the beans. Place the chicken in the crock-pot, and add the other four ingredients on top. If you are home, stir the ingredients every few hours. (I was gone all day and it turned out fine.) Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir to shred the chicken.
I have eaten this straight from the bowl, on a bed of shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes in the summer, over a baked potato on a cold day, and wrapped in a low-cal tortilla. Friends I know serve it over brown rice. Any which way, this is a tasty, filling, low-calorie dinner treat!
