Santa Fe Chicken

I was at work the other day and I could smell this wonderful aroma from one of my co-workers heating up their lunch.  It smelled and looked fantastic.  So I of course had to have the recipe.  The best part is she cooked all in her crock pot .  I love cooking in my crock pot!!

3-4 Chicken breast-I used frozen
1 can corn-rinsed
1 can black beans-rinsed
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 Tbsp Garlic powder

Mix everything together in the crock pot.  Add the chicken on top and kind of push down a little so some of the sauce is covering the chicken.  Cook on low and cook 6-8 hours.  Serve over rice.

My Notes:
I think the frozen chicken was perfect, my chicken never dried out from over cooking.   I think this recipe was lacking some flavor so I think next time I will add a little bit of taco seasoning.  Maybe use mexi-corn instead of regular corn.  My husband suggested shredding the chicken.

  5. This was very good! I only used 2 chicken breasts (they were thawed out in the fridge and needed something fast and easy to use them with). After they were done cooking I shredded them (I can’t stand whole chicken breasts) and then ended up adding another can of tomato sauce because it was so thick. It was delicious! Some of us even added cheese before serving. :)
