I’m Bringing Crock Pots Back
Here’s an ode to the crock pot and a delicious chicken recipe.
The Crock Pot, aka slow cooker, seems like one of those cooking units that have an other worldly feel to them.
‘Half the time I don’t know where it’s at.
Those slow cooked meals are coming back.
Just when I start to think it never got unpacked,
I find it down in the basement.’
Our Trusted Crock Pot
Thoughts of a cooking device that gets taken out once in a blue moon because I actually had the fore thought to prepare a meal 8 hours in advance seems distant and remote. Maybe we as a society have evolved into fast food and immediate gratification to make the slow cooker seem antiquated.
If you’re one to want to plan things in advance then the Crock Pot is just the right thing you need.
Putting the contents together and being able to walk away from it without another thought almost seems too good to be true. We have a crock pot chicken recipe that will not only tempt your taste buds but make you want to bring this cooking pot out more than once a year.
The following ingredients are needed to make our easy Crock Pot Fiesta Chicken:
- 2 cans (15 1/4 oz. each) whole kernel corn, drained
- 1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained
- 1 jar (16 oz.) chunky salsa, medium or hot
- 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 oz. each)
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Prep Instructions: Most store bought skinless boneless chicken breasts are ready to cook right out of the package. We never really take that at its word and look the chicken over. We remove the sinew and fat before it is actually ready to be cooked.
