Slow cooked meals are sorta like fire-and-forget cooking. I always look for the quickest prepared meals that I can set up in the morning, cook in the slow cooker and come back 6 to 10 hours later to a meal ready to be eaten. Chicken is always a good one. The recipe below is for a simple chicken taco salad for your slow cooker:
Slow Cooked Chicken Taco SaladDirections:
- 4 Boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- 1 Cup of water
- 2 package Taco Seasoning
- 1 can of Corn
- 1 can of Black Beans
- Sour Cream
Mix the chicken, water, and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Use higher setting for cooking in shorter duration.
Serve with 3 tbsps of corn and 3 tbsps of black bean. Top with sour cream and cilantro. Hot sauce would have been nice. I just didn't have any at the time. Yum!
Because of the chicken and the beans, this chicken taco salad should be very good in providing protein and lean fat. I would have loved to add chopped tomatoes for vitamin C and antioxidant, not to mention, heavenly taste.
