5 Minute Crockpot Dinner

I made this last night and it was wonderful...and it couldn't be any simpler.

  1. Place a 2.5/3 pound bag of frozen chicken tenderloins into the crockpot
  2. Add an 8 oz brick of cream cheese (don't use fat-free or it will become too watery)
  3. Add a can of black beans (drained)
  4. Add a can of corn (drained)
  5. Add a can of rotel
Let it cook for 6-8 hours on low.  Shred the chicken or leave it as is.  I served mine with warm tortillas but this would also be wonderful with spanish rice.
If you want a lower fat-version, omit the cream cheese and add additional beans and corn.  If you like a more "chicken-chili" flavor, add some chili powder and cumin or a chili seasoning packet.
"Wa-la" - dinner is served!

  1. This recipe sounds really good. My only concern is using frozen chicken. I have always heard that you shouldn’t use frozen chicken in the slow cooker because it will sit out too many hours before it actually is cooked. I would suggest thawing the chicken overnight before throwing it in. I am planning to try this recipe. Thanks!
