and healthy. It's loosely based on another recipe I found online but because I wanted to only use what I had on hand, it got a bit tweaked.
I'm calling it Chicken San Antonio because it's a mexican-style dish and I love San Antonio. :)
What you'll need:
Crock pot/ slow cooker
Salsa of any kind
Taco seasoning packet
Cut chicken (I used boneless, skinless breasts - 2) into strips.
Coat in mixture of 2 tbsp flour and 1/2 packet taco seasoning.
Place in bottom of crock pot.
Slice (red, green, yellow, etc) peppers and or onions -- I used a bag of frozen pre-sliced peppers and onions I bought at Trader Joes and this part was made even easier
Mix the peppers/onions with 1 - 1.5 cups of salsa and then pour over the chicken.
Cook on high 3 hours or low I'm guessing 5-6ish.
Stir it all together before serving. Easy peasy!
I tried mine after almost 3 hrs on high and it was perfectly done, if not a little salsa-heavy (I used 1.5 c).
You could eat this with hard or soft shells, over rice, etc. The original recipe called for topping it with cheese but I didn't feel the need.
For my WW friends, it was only 5 points for 3 over-stuffed hard taco's full and I myself am now stuffed, too.
Tomorrow is my WW Wednesday so I will be sure to share my results with you in the afternoon. The end of last week was UGLY but by the weekend I was back on track, partly because of all the support I found from my blaaaahglanders. :) So, thanks!
