The Year of No-Fuss Cooking {Salsa Chicken}

No-Fussing Number 4! Are you enjoying this series so far? I really am grateful to the fellow bloggers over at Six Sisters' Stuff, Who Needs a Cape?, and others for compiling so many great recipes... thank you, Pinterest!

This week's recipe adapted from Six-Cents is simple, delicious, and versatile. Salsa Chicken can be served with rice, as a burrito, or alone. Our favorite is definitely wrapped in a flour tortilla with the works (cheese, sour cream, lettuce, avocado, cilantro)!


3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
2 cups frozen corn
1 jar salsa
1 T. chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper


Throw all ingredients into a gallon size freezer bag and freeze until ready to use. To cook, empty contents of the bag into a slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and let cool for a minute. Shred chicken, return to slow cooker, and mix. Serve however your heart desires!
