    Tish's Note:

    The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!

      Loved this - made it in the crock pot also, cooked about 7 hours on low. I used Pace mild salsa. We made it for a big group of us on vacation - it was so easy because I just brought it frozen in the bag, let it defrost on the way to our destination, stuck it in the crock pot in the morning. Then we played around town all day and it was ready when we got home. I served it over rice and we had very positive reviews from the four adults on the trip (including me)!

      10/11/09 Amazingly delicious and so easy to make. This simple recipe exceeded my expectations. Really good over rice. Thanks for posting a recipe that's sure to be made often in our home! 11/24/09 Made this for the second time and my husband, who loved it the first time, RAVED about it even more this time. He asked where I got the recipe and when I said "Zaar" he said, "Well, I would definitely give this a really good rating!" So, here's a SIX star rating from my husband!!
