    CrissyJ76's Note:

    A delicious combination of cheese, chicken, salsa and rice. I created this recipe when I needed to make dinner in the crockpot because my husband was redoing the floors in the kitchen and I had no stove to use. Thanks to him a new chicken recipe was born. I use my homemade canned salsa but any salsa will do. Also, we mostly eat chicken breast, but you can use any type of chicken. The cooking time will need adjusted longer for dark meat or chicken on the bone. There are several variations for this recipe such as adding beans, corn, mushrooms, etc. The possibilities are endless.

      This was a great easy recipe! The first time I made it was for a work potluck and it was a hit and so filling. The chicken was very tender so I ended up breaking it up and shredding it then topped it with shredded cheese and sour cream.

      I think this turned out pretty nice. I loved the rice. I think cutting the chicken up into smaller pieces would be better.

      The flavor was good, but I didn't really care for the texture. The rice was pretty mushy. The chicken ended up really flavorful having cooked in the spices in the crockpot.
