Many people (myself included) firmly believe that the crockpot is one of the best things to happen in the kitchen. I mean, it’s basically just like letting meals cook themselves, right? Who wouldn’t want to pass off that kind of convenience? Well, not me! So just imagine my delight when I came across this ginormous list of Crockpot recipes!
Here’s one of my favorites: Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken from Skinnytaste.com
- 24 ounces or 1 1/2 lbs chicken breast
- 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes with mild green chilies
- 15 ounce can black beans
- 8 ounce frozen corn
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 14.4 ounce can fat free chicken broth
- 3 chopped scallions
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- salt (to taste)
Here’s what you need to do:
Step One: Combine the following ingredients in the crock pot: chicken broth, corn, black beans, tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt.
Step Two: Season the chicken breasts with salt and place on top of the other ingredients in the crock pot.
Step Three: Cook it in the crock pot on low setting for ten hours, or on high setting for six hours.
Step Four: Thirty minutes before it is completely cooked, remove the chicken from the crock pot and shred it. It should be very easy to shred with a fork at this point.
Step Five: Return the chicken into the crock pot, stirring it into the rest of the ingredients.
Step Six: Check the flavor with a taste test. Add salt and seasoning to suit your taste.
Step Seven: After thirty minutes, it is ready to serve. Place on top of steaming rice or tortillas. Add toppings and enjoy!
