Healthy Crock Pot Recipes: Fiesta ChickenBy
Since yesterday’s Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cake in the crock pot really isn’t a great crock pot recipe, here’s a great one for Fiesta Chicken. This was a hit with our whole family!
Crock Pot Fiesta Chicken
2 Tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced (or one teaspoon garlic powder)
1 small jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 – 14 1/2 ounce can of Mexican style diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
In a skillet, cook the chicken pieces in the olive oil until browned. Remove chicken, and saute onion, pepper, garlic, and jalapeno in the juices and oil. Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.
Serve over rice, or on a soft tortilla. Top with cheese, olives, lettuce, sour cream – or any toppings you choose. Add frozen corn and/or black beans to the crock pot if you’d like.
