Crockpot Mexican Chicken

Okay, I know I say this every time I post something, but I believe I might have found a new favorite recipe. I feel pretty confident this time because I've made this about 6 times since I first found it a couple of months ago. I've also gotten a couple people hooked on it, so I take that as a good sign. This chicken is pretty darn good by itself, but it's also fabulous as a taco base or even over pasta (as beautifully showcased here). I also like to add a little cheese and jalape├▒os to the top of mine.

Note: Since I've tried this a few times, I've found that chicken tenderloins work out better if you're putting this over pasta. It eliminates the need to shred the chicken and it will cook faster.

Ingredients:

1 package boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins or breasts. (this can be anywhere from 1-1.5 pounds)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 cup of salsa (any kind is fine, but the chunky kind is less runny)
1 cup of plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream, if you prefer)
1 package of taco seasoning

Directions:

1. Add everything but the chicken. Stir until blended.
2. Add chicken, making sure it's covered in the sauce.
3. Cook on low for about 4-6 hours, or until chicken is white all the way through. Note: Cook time can vary depending on how you cut your chicken. It can take longer if you're using whole chicken breasts.

Recipe slightly varied from Chef Mommy.

Excuses, Excuses

Oh, hi there!

So I haven't posted in a while. Sorry about that! I have some new stuff to share with you, though! I haven't had a lot of time to cook, but I do have some recipes in store for you in the coming weeks.

Now, as for Tunesday... I've actually started DJing on a local radio station. It's a 1.5 hour show and I mostly play indie and folk-y music. Shocking, right? Anyway, I'll post some of the playlists soon. I'm recording my shows, but 1.) My first couple of shows were horrible and 2.) I'm not sure if anyone even wants to hear it. (haha!) But that might be something I'll be posting in the future.

Anyway... stay tuned.

I miss you.


love,
Laina

Tunesday - Joshua Radin

First, I'd just like to apologize for the lack of posts lately. I've had a lot of stuff going on with school and social events. Please forgive me! Here's an adorable song to brighten your day. Honestly, it's one of the sweetest songs I've ever heard. One word: duet.I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
