Crock Pot Southwestern Chicken

Posted by on April 10, 2013 in Main Dishes, Recipes | 23 comments

This is one of my favorite recipes because it is so easy and looks so colorful and delicious! I always have the ingredients on hand for Southwestern Chicken when I want an easy dinner. My daughter-in-law shared this recipe with me. I’ve altered it a bit because I like more sauce. There are 3 ingredients plus chicken and simple, super easy directions.



Crock Pot Southwestern Chicken


2 – 15 1/4 oz.  cans corn ( I usually use one)

1- jar chunky salsa (24 oz)  (Recipe called for 16 oz. )  Your choice on mild, medium or hot!

1 -15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1 cup low-fat or regular shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)




Combine corn, beans, and 2/3 cup salsa in slow cooker.

Top with chicken.

Pour remaining salsa over chicken.
