5 ingredient – 5 hour slow cooker easy chicken dinner idea. Southwestern Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken = Bam
Everyone needs an easy dump and go Crockpot weeknight dinner. And this one is about as easy as it gets. Chicken breasts will cook in about 5 hours. A can of corn, a can of black beans and a jar of salsa.
And the icing on the cake? A brick of cream cheese.
Slow Cookers are awesome. A magical pot in the kitchen that transforms food from ho-hum to tender and wonderful. They’re ideal when it’s cold and dreary out. Is there anything more comforting to coming home to the smell of a savory meal that’s ready to serve? I have a feeling I’m preaching to the choir on that subject. And have I mentioned lately how much I love my All Clad Crockpot? I upgraded a few years ago from the slow cooker I’ve had for more than 20 years. Love it. I’ve included an affiliate link if you’re interested.
This recipe is not only easy, but it’s effortless. Not to mention downright delicious. This is one quick weeknight recipe that you need in your database. It’s one of our favorites and gets rave reviews when it travels to a pot luck.
Note: Don’t use frozen chicken breasts for this recipe. It will take the crockpot too long to heat them up, leaving them at an unsafe temperature for too long of time until they start cooking.
