Fiesta Chicken

Fiesta Chicken is an easy and delicious versatile slow cooker dinner!
Melissa's Cuisine: Fiesta Chicken

Since going back to work almost 3 months ago, I have come to realize how much I love my Programmable Slow Cooker . Let's face it, if I don't have dinner planned or in the slow cooker before dinner, I will end up taking the easy way out and ordering a pizza.

And that adds up quickly...both in cost and calories! I have a baby who needs clothes and diapers and I am trying to lose the baby weight, so those are two things I would like to reduce. Thankfully I have some good crock pot recipes, like this one!

I have made Fiesta Chicken at least a dozen times in the past year. It is so easy; just open a few cans, add a few chicken breasts, sprinkle in some seasoning, turn on the crock pot and walk away. After a few hours, your house will smell amazing and dinner will be ready.

This Fiesta Chicken is extremely versatile. The recipe can easily be adapted. Don't like beans? No problem, leave the out! Love corn? Add another bag! Like it more soupy? Add another can of tomatoes or some chicken broth! There are also multiple serving options. I typically serve the Fiesta Chicken over brown rice, but it is also good on its own, over noodles, or even on a baked potato!

  3. Sounds great! I make a white chicken chili in the slow cooker like this, but would definitely make this as well. Throw in a few jalapenos and some cilantro. Yumm! [#PinItThurs]
