Southwestern Slow Cooker Chicken

  A simple, healthy and delicious chicken recipe for the slow cooker with just 6 ingredients. Nothing beats a slow cooker recipe, Throw all the ingredients in the crock pot, go to work, pick up the kids, and when you get home, dinner is done!!
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces) corn, drained 
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained 
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) chunky salsa, divided 
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 to 5 ounces each) 
  • Southwest seasoning blend (optional) 
  • 1 cup low-fat shredded Mexican cheese blend 
Combine the corn, black beans and 1/2 cup salsa in a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker. Season the chicken with Southwest seasoning blend or salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken to the slow cooker. Top with the remaining salsa. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook 5 minutes more or until cheese melts.

This makes a generous serving. To shave a couple of WW points, eat a smaller portion, which is what I did. To prevent your chicken from drying out, you’ll want to check for doneness. Many of today’s slow cookers are much hotter than they used to be. My chicken was done in about 3.5 hours on low! Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 3 hours Total time: 3 hours 10 mins Serves: 6
