Easy South Western Chicken Recipe made with salsa, black beans, tomatoes, corn and cream cheese.

Over the last week, I have been on an “easy meal kick”!  With the holidays right around the corner, I have had no time for fancy recipes that require endless amounts of slicing and dicing.  Just give me the can and I would be happy to open it!  Ding!  Dinner served.

That’s why I like to make this  South Western Chicken Crock Pot Recipe whenever I am in a hurry and don’t have time to meal plan for the week.  Typically, I always have most of the ingredients in the house.  But here’s a tip!  When you are out grocery shopping, stock up on the needed supplies, and you will never be without an easy crock pot meal again.  Even the creme cheese in this recipe can be frozen.  So on the morning of, just add everything to the crock pot, and out the door you go!  No thinking required!

SOUTH WESTERN CHICKEN CROCK POT INGREDIENTS:

4 – Frozen Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 – Can of Black Beans (drained)

1 – Can of Yellow Corn (drained)

1 – Can of Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes

1 – Jar of Mild Salsa

1 – Block of Creme Cheese

SOUTH WESTERN CHICKEN CROCK POT RECIPE:

First, spray the inside of the crock pot with PAM.  This will prevent the frozen chicken from sticking to the ceramic dish.  Next add the frozen skinless chicken breasts to the bottom of the crock pot.  Drain the can of black beans and add them on top of the chicken.  Drain the can of yellow corn and add it on top of the beans.  Open the can of Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes and pour it in.  Last add a jar of mild salsa to the crock pot.

Cook the South Western Chicken on low for 8 hours or on high for 6 hours.  10 minutes before the dish is done add a block of creme cheese on top to melt.  Finally, cut up the chicken in the crock pot with a fork and knife and stir until fully mixed.  This South Western Chicken is best served over tortilla chips or as a filling for tacos and burritos.  I also like to add a little shredded cheese on top prior to serving.

I prefer to use Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes for dinner and cold weather meals, because they help save time with easy, stress free recipe creations during the holidays.

I just picked up a can in the canned food aisle while doing my regular shopping at Walmart.
