Crock Pot Chicken Fiesta
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best surprises. Beans, chicken, rice and tomatoes in the crock pot seems a little boring but it is a colorful and flavorful recipe for those rushed nights midweek. If your crock pot is one of your most well-loved kitchen appliances, I suggest checking out the Thoughtless Thursdays crock pot roundup this Thursday and every Thursday at Pots and Plots . I am going to try and participate in the Thoughtless Thursdays roundup frequently because Tuesdays and Thursdays are my baseball, gymnastics, violin lessons, Webelos Scout nights and therefore my crock pot is vital to my survival.
Fiesta Chicken adapted from The Rival Crock-Pot cookbook
1 Can (15 oz tomato sauce
2 Cans Petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can green chilies
1 C. Long Grain Rice
1 Can (15 oz) Chicken Broth
1 Can kidney beans, undrained
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts ( I used breasts)
1 packet of chicken or regular taco seasoning.
1. Combine tomato sauce, tomatoes, rice, broth, beans, chicken and seasoning in crock pot. Stir to blend.
2. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
This recipe would be ideal for the bagged recipes tip.
