Fiesta Chicken

I was looking for another do-ahead in the slow cooker chicken recipe when I found this.


2 chicken breasts
1/2 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans, drained
1/2 cup frozen corn
3 oz. black olives, drained (sliced black olives)
1/4 onion, chopped
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 (15 ounce) jar salsa, medium
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1-2 tbsp. taco seasoning
1/2 can green chillies


1. Add all ingredients to crock pot EXCEPT cream cheese.

2.Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8 hours.

3.Add the package of cream cheese (whole) to top of cooking chicken mixture for last 30 minute of cooking.

4.Serve over cooked rice or egg noodles with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkles of shredded cheddar if desired.

I cooked it on high for about 7 hours and the chicken was falling apart and very tender.  To change it I would serve it over something besides egg noodles.  I liked the rice idea, but I didn’t want to wait for the steamer.  Another suggestion was over corn chips; like nachos.
