Nothing like the first time…. (Slow-cooked Salsa Chicken and rice)

 So… This may wind up being the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done. But, I’m always up for trying something new, so here we goooooo….

My intentions for this blog are to (1) give me something to do aside from cooking, cleaning and wiping noses/butts (great visual, huh?) (2) chronicle my life and my kids lives, (3) be an artistic outlet and (4) hopefully, give some hope and information/recipes to other moms/wives embarking on similar journeys.

Today I’ll start with a very simple – and cheap – recipe that my

  sister shared with me. It is also what we’re having for dinner tonight and since nothing much else interesting is going on today, I figured why not let this recipe be my first post 🙂

Slow-cooked Salsa Chicken with Rice

Ingredients:

 3 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 Jar mild salsa
1 yellow onion
3 cups instant white rice
3 tblsp butter
1 tsp salt
2 green onions, sliced into rings

Cut chicken into large pieces, but no thicker than 1/2″ or so.  Slice onion into thin

  rings. Place chicken and onion in slow cooker and cover with the entire jar of salsa. Cook on low for approximately 4 hours, or until chicken is done. Once chicken is done, prepare rice according to directions on package and add butter and salt to the rice after it is cooked. Serve the chicken over the rice. Garnish with sliced green onions. Voila! That is all. (haha) Now, the hardest thing is trying not to eat this delicious heavenly-smelling concoction before the husband gets home from work… And trust me, this is easier said than done!

My salsa chicken, cooking on low… Has been going for about 2 hours…

Another recipe will follow for an indian fried bread that I will serve w ith this, along with some simple homemade mexi-corn.

Happy slowcooking!
