This was awesome...I think cooking the chicken first w/all of the seasoning made all of the difference in the world!!! YUMMY! Will surely be making this again and again! Thank you for sharing!

My 8 year old son made this recipe as part of a homeschooling bizarre math/science lesson and it was great! I baked the chicken first so he could just cut it and add to the crockpot. He was so proud of himself he asked his neighborhood friends over for dinner. Thanks for a simple and yummy recipe.

This recipe is awesome! It is a great one to serve to a crowd and can be made quickly. I do it on the stove, not the crock pot and it turns out great. I substituted chicken broth for the water, and use frozen white shoepeg corn instead of the canned corn. We also serve it with extra limes. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
