Oh, hi.  Its been a while, yes?  I could list excuses, but I won't.  But I promise, they're all good ones!  In fact, this recipe is a good one too.  So good I had to pop in and post it! 

Crockpot Salsa Chicken

Here's what I used:

4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup good salsa (I used Jack's "Garden Fresh Gourmet" Special Salsa in Medium)
1 cup water + 3 cubes bullion (OR) 1 cup Chicken Stock
1 green bell pepper, rough chopped
1 large onion, rough chopped
1/2 lb cherry/plum tomatoes, stewed (instructions below)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Tony Chacheries (or other cajun seasoning)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp cumin

For Plating: white rice, shredded mexican cheese blend and lite sour cream. 

Here's what I did:

Prepare the tomatoes by adding them to boiling water.  Allow water to return to a boil, and then remove from heat.  Gently peel away skin from the tomatoes, and set aside.

In the crockpot, add all ingredients, and cook on high for 5-6 hours, or low for 8-9 hours.

As a final step, remove chicken and chop into 1" slices, cubes, or shred with two forks, if desired.

We served this with white rice, and several typical "mexican" toppings or fixings.  Feel free to add what your group would enjoy.  Fresh chopped cilantro and jalapeno's would be a really nice addition.
