Santa Fe Chicken

Recipe found on about.com by Cindy

Simple recipe but the flavors combined are pretty good.  It's nice with a side of tortilla chips.  I've also turned down the crockpot to low.  The cooking time averaged about 6 to 7 hours.  You'll just need to watch it.

Santa Fe Chicken

Cook Time: 3 hours
Ingredients:
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cans (15 oz) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup bottled thick and chunky salsa, your favorite
  • 5 or 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 lbs)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Preparation:

In a 3-1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker, mix together the black beans, corn, and 1/2 cup of the salsa. Top with the chicken breasts, then pour the remaining 1/2 cup salsa over the chicken. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the chicken is tender and white throughout; do not overcook or the chicken will be dry. Sprinkle cheese on top; cover and cook until the cheese melts, about 5 to 15 minutes.
Serves 6.
