I didn't see this until after I had posted in the regular crockpot recipes area. Glad to see others doing WW too!!!
I tried a new crockpot recipe yesterday (only I cooked in my Pressure Cooker instead) and it was absolutely delicious!
Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken
Serve over rice, in a bowl with nachos on the side, or even in a flour tortilla. Don't forget the toppings. Chopped scallions, fresh cilantro, fat free yogurt or sour cream and reduced fat cheddar cheese are some toppings to choose from for additional points. NOTE: This almost has a soupy consistency, but just use a strainer for the actual meal part when you serve.
Servings: 8 servings Size: 1 cup (9.85 oz. which is just over a cup) Points+: 4 pts Calories: 190 Fat: 1.5 g Fiber: 5.6 g Carbs: 23.1 g Protein: 21 g
24 oz. (1-1/2) lbs. chicken breast, boneless/skinless 14.4 oz. can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies (I used 10 oz. Rotel) 15 oz. can black beans, drained 8 oz. frozen corn 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 14.4 oz. can fat free chicken broth 3 scallions, chopped 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. onion powder 1 tsp. cumin 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (to taste) salt to taste I added some salt AFTER it was done cooking
Combine chicken broth, beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, scallions, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt in the crock pot . Season chicken breast with salt and lay on top.
Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Adjust salt and seasoning to taste. Serve over rice (I did chicken flavored rice by cooking rice with chicken bouillon cubes) or use tortillas and your favorite toppings. NOTE: I cooked in my Pressure Cooker for 27 minutes on high and then just let the pressure go down on its own which took about 15-20 minutes. Then I shredded chicken and added the meat back to the mixture. I prepared this before work so when I got home I was just able to reheat and eat.

BlindBatty, Martha, and Momto3, did you make anything in the Crock Pot this summer? I love your enthusiasm and participation, but I didn't see your posts. I know family comes first. Maybe you posted and I missed them, I had alot of major upheaval going on in the last 4 months. Post when you can, I'd love to see your recipes! I'm heading on over right now to post chipotle taco filling in the "cooking today" thread, and in the beef thread.
