Creamy Crockpot Salsa Chicken (Secret Recipe Club)

The Secret Recipe Club is back!  And my assignment this month was A Little Nosh, Amy’s blog.  I’m very familiar with it because I often participate in her Tastetastic Thursdays (when I remember, that is!).  Amy has a wide variety of recipes on her blog, but I went with something that was essentially “back to basics”, although a slightly different version that I’m used to.

Life has been a bit crazy lately, so this really worked out well for us last week after I was running around all day, then needed to head out to (our first!) Back to School night.  I think it took about 90 seconds to throw together.  Yeah, can’t beat that.

The cream cheese definitely gives it a nice touch…better than a version I’ve made in the past without it.  Served over brown rice – done!

Thanks for a great recipe, Amy!

Creamy Crockpot Salsa Chicken
slightly adapted from A Little Nosh

3 large boneless chicken breasts (frozen is fine!)
1 (15 ounce) can of corn, drained
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained (which I would have GLADLY added, if Frank ate beans…)
1/2 block cream cheese, cut into chunks

Place chicken in crockpot, followed by corn, salsa and beans.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  About 30 minutes before eating, add cream cheese and stir.  Serve over rice.
