Post-It Note Tuesday!

Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken
Servings: 8 servings Size: 1 cup Old Points: 3 pts Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 190 • Fat: 1.5 g • Fiber: 5.6 g • Carbs: 23.1 g • Protein: 21 g


  • 24 oz (1 1/2) lbs chicken breast
  • 14.4 oz can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies
  • 15 oz can black beans
  • 8 oz frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 14.4 oz can fat free chicken broth
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • salt to taste

Combine chicken broth, beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, scallions, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt in the crock pot. Season chicken breast with salt and lay on top.  

Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Adjust salt and seasoning to taste. Serve over rice or tortillas and your favorite toppings.

Note: This can be rather bland "as is". I put in chili powder, and added a taco seasoning packet. I also added a lot more cilantro than called for because I love it! Put in your chicken thawed, or it gets too runny! Also, I spooned over the mixture on the chicken when putting it on top. Better flavor that way!!! This was a big hit with my family. Enjoy!

OMG your mail sucks. I sent your earrings like 3 weeks before Christmas, love. I can't BELIEVE it took that long! Boo! But I'm glad you love them.

I have absolutely no idea how it's February. When did that happen? It only struck me when you said "last of the month" and I looked at a calendar. So thank you...I think.

Thanks for sharing.
