    knobbyknee's Note:

    We went on a trip over Labor Day with some friends of ours and they made this for dinner one night. I made it again the next weekend for our big family dinner we have once a month. I received compliments from everyone! Try it, it is so easy. These are the measurements I used. There were 6 adults (we each ate at least 2) and 3 kids (they ate maybe 1 1/2 between them) and we had tons of extras. Next time I will cut it not quite in half for that size of a group. My servings and yields are just estimates because we had so much left over-hard to gauge. I used thawed chicken when I made it.

      Simple and wonderful! I used 1 can of black beans and one can of navy beans and omitted the corn. Used about 30 ounces of salsa. Served over brown rice and it was awesome! Will definitely make again! I cooked on low in the crockpot for 4 hours (mine cooks hot) and the chicken was so moist and tender!

      Terrific! And so simple!! We threw this together today using a single (slightly larger) jar of salsa verde, three large chicken breasts, and one can each of (drained) beans and corn. After 6 hours, the chicken was fall-apart tender, the sauce had cooked into the meat perfectly, and it was just all so good wrapped in warmed tortillas. A really wonderful dish to come home to on this cold Chicago night! We *will* make this again! Thanks for sharing!
