Bliss In A Bite

I haven't posted any recipes for a while, primarily because I haven't found any really good, new ones. While we were in California, my cousin Missy made some incredible chicken, and I had to have the recipe for it. Since then I have passed this amazing, simple recipe on to several friends and other cousins, all of whom have loved it as much as I have. It's even a Weight Watchers recipe, for those of you who are minding your food intake. It's 3 points per serving of chicken, and 0 points if you're on the core plan. So without further ado, here's the most amazing crockpot recipe I have ever had.

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

Place in the crockpot:

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup salsa (you choose the type)
1 package taco seasoning (go for the low sodium kind)

Cook on high for 5 hours.

After removing the chicken from the crockpot, add sour cream to the juices in the crockpot. I use 1 cup of lite or fat free sour cream. This makes a delicious sauce to pour over the chicken if you so desire.

There are several ways to serve the chicken.
1. Serve the chicken breasts whole with Mexican rice and refried beans.
2. Shred the chicken (it practically falls apart!) and serve with salad fixings, using the sace in lieu of dressing.
3. Shred the chicken and serve with tortilla, taco shells, and taco fixings.

If you make this recipe, please leave me a comment and let me know how you like it!

this is so random. My friend just gave this recipe to me not that long ago! Although she suggested serving it over brown rice. Too funny! It is good and I love that the chicken is so tender and yummy.

Do you put frozen chicken breasts in the slow cooker? I'm making a variation of this tonight - we call it Aztec chicken and it has beans and corn in it, sometimes a bit of cream cheese. Yum!

I found it! And, I'm snatching it up or rather bookmarking it. I think it might makes its way onto our dinner plates one night this week.
