    I used a 16 oz. jar of salsa and didn't need to thicken-I also added a drained can of black beans and served over rice-great!!

    I tried this recipe when I was looking for something to make so I wouldn't have to go to the store! The family really liked it and it will be a keeper. The only thing I will change next time is to either cut back on the corn starch a little or add some more liquid - it got pretty thick but other than that the flavor was really good..

    This is excellent! Low fat, low calories, low carb, high taste and flavor, plus EASY! I followed the simple recipe, then at the end I added a can of black beans and a cup of corn when thickening the sauce. I also shredded the chicken and we ate it rolled into tortillas. Thank you!

    This recipe has been a family favorite for 15+ years. It is very versatile, meaning you can serve it over rice, or as chicken tacos. We like it with black beans and rice, but sometimes fat free refried beans for something different. If you leave out the sour cream and serve the sour cream on the side, it's just as good.

    This is absolutely delicious. My sauce was too thick but that's because I forgot the water. I also used thighs but I'm sure it would be just as wonderful with breasts. And so easy.


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
