I am all about the crock pot. I love that thing and think it has to be a top 5 genius invention in this world. Right next to penicillin, the atomic bomb, duct tape...the crock pot! I use mine at least 2 times a week and if I could do all cooking in it I would rock. One of my favorite things to do is a chicken salsa that Mike and I just love. We had it last night and I thought it was worth sharing. I call it Scoop Chicken.
2 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I sometimes use tenderloins because they cook faster)
1 1/2 - 2 cups of your favorite salsa (I love the black bean and corn variety - Meijer has a great one)
Cook in your crock pot for 3 or 4 hours. I often put the chicken in the crock pot still frozen and it cooks great.
I usually shred the chicken with forks after it's been cooking for a while.
Prior to eating prepare a cup of jasmine (or your favorite) rice.
Line the bottom of a cereal bowl with baked Tostitos Scoops.
Add rice over the scoops. Spoon the chicken and salsa over the rice. Top with shredded mild cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream. You could add jalapenos, black beans, black olives, anything you like.
We love the crunch of the Scoops with the chicken, salsa and rice. It is a total comfort food for us!
I love new recipes so please share any good ones you may have!
