Last night I didn't want to spend a lot of time cooking so I decided to go with the slow-cooker. I had all the ingredients on hand (I guess it's telling that our palates enjoy southwestern flavors!). I found this recipe in the Skinnytaste cookbook. It is full of great and light recipes. You can check out the blog here. I didn't make any modifications to this recipe and it was delicious.
Santa Fe Chicken
2 C chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes with chili
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 C frozen corn
1/4 C chopped fresh cilantro
3 green onions, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 lb chicken breasts
- Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 10 hours (or on low for 6 hours).
- About 30 minutes before serving, remove chicken and shred
- Add chicken back to slow cooker for the last 30 minutes
- Top with favorite toppings (cilantro, green onion, sour cream, cheese)
Such a simple and comforting meal! This would be great served over a tortilla, corn chips, lettuce, even in enchiladas.
I hope you all agree that this is super yummy!
Looking forward to reading your comments, plus a more relaxing week!
