Crock Pot Salsa Chicken for Two


HE SAID: Pretty good, could be spicier, would eat it again
SHE SAID: Yum and soooo easy!, great as leftovers

What to make, what to make? That's always the question! Here's another great recipe we found on Stephanie O'Dea's blog. We chose it for it's simplicity since one of us had to work and the other ran household errands - wow, what an easy recipe, but it's so flavorful!

Salsa Chicken...mmm. We went with 8 small chicken thighs (which looks more like 6 regular sized thighs) and used the 2-quart crock pot for this recipe. We're not into beans, so next time we'll be using half the beans. It was great and so tender!

Another way to serve this...we did this with our leftovers (and wished we served more of the sauce with the chicken the first night!)...make "pulled chicken" open faced sandwiches. For our starch we made homemade guacamole (the better way to go) since avocados were on sales $1 a piece. We've also made something similar to what Stephanie O'Dea suggested..creamy sauce. We usually add in cream of mushroom soup with the salsa...we've only tried this in the oven, but will try it in the crock pot soon!

Enjoy! We sure did! All 8 thighs were gone after two meals!
