Crock Pot Salsa Chicken weight watcher recipes

salsachicken 007

I love you crock pot salsa chicken, will you marry me?

You’re quick and easy, and you don’t mind what I do with you. I like to make nachos with you, and cover you in cheese, sour cream, and onions. I almost wish, I could find others as easy like you.

I had some salsa leftover still from the salsa contest that we had at work. We had to make a whole pint of salsa and I didn’t even go through 8 oz of it. Next year, if I do the salsa contest, I’m entering in the fruity competition. Only one person submitted for that category and they won. Go figure right? I think that was rigged.

    If your counting points all you need to do is measure out your chicken right? Salsa and seasoning is 0

    I have been doing weight watchers for 8 weeks now. I am glad I found your website. We are trying the crock pot chicken tonight.

    This recipe is so incredibly versatile. I would agree. I have a recipe in my newsletter series that is similar and thought I would share. It is just stepped up a bit:

    Southwestern Chicken

    Note: You can adjust the heat on this by your heat selection of the Rotel tomatoes (comes in mild, regular and spicy)

    Servings: 8 servings • Size: 1 cup • Points+: 4 pts

    Ingredients:
    24 oz (1 1/2 lbs) boneless skinless chicken breast
    14.4 oz can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies (I use Rotel)
    15 oz can black beans
    8 oz frozen corn
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    14.4 oz can fat free chicken broth
    4 green onions chopped (divided)
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
    salt to taste

    Directions:
    Reserve green onion tops.

    Combine chicken broth, beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, green onion whites, 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. You can top with the reserved green onion tops and serve this over brown rice. Just be sure to add the extra points for the rice.

    The chicken would be delish but it won’t be 3 pts. After I put it on tortilla chips, like the ones shown in the picture! Any serving ideas to keep the points low but get the same effect?
