Crock Pot Black Bean & Corn Chicken

8 02 2011

Crock Pots are one of the greatest cooking inventions ever.  You can throw almost anything into a crock pot and it will turn out tender and full of flavor.  Just be careful to have enough liquid in it or else it will be dry.  I used our crock pot at least once a week when I was working because it made dinner so simple when I got home at night.  Here is a family favorite that you can eat by itself or shred the chicken and throw into tortillas.

Slow cooker liners

Now if you are anything like me you love your crock pot but hate the clean up after words.  Nothing like 8 hours to bake everything onto the crock pot.  I stumbled upon these slow cooker liners and they are the best thing ever.  Just place into your crock pot and then add the ingredients like you usually would.  The clean up is so easy once you are done.

Frozen Chicken

Now back to the chicken.  Place 3-4 chicken breasts into the crock pot.  Frozen or thawed. Boneless or bone in.

Dump in corn and black beans

Dump in a can of drained black beans and a can of drained corn. Nothing fancy and resist the urge to stir it up, no need to. Next dump in the jar of salsa.  You make it as spicy as you like based upon the salsa you use.  Then set it on high for 4 to 6 hours.

Cream cheese on top

About 30 minutes before your ready to eat drop a brick of cream cheese on top.  Then put the lid back on and let sit.

All mixed up

Once you are ready to eat mix it all up while you are shredding the chicken.

Black Bean & Corn Chicken

Serve with tortillas on the side.  Enjoy!
