So today I am really excited. I am a Featured Blogger over at FITBLOGGER. I had a really good time writing this post. I hope you go over there and check it out.
Here’s what’s in today’s bag. Oats in a Jar (OIAJ) and an apple for breakfast. Whole wheat pita and hummus with a hard-boiled egg, string cheese and pretzels for lunch.
Yesterdays overnight oats for breakfast really kept me satisfied straight through lunch so I thought I’d make it again for today’s breakfast.
- 1/2 cup of Oats
- 1/2 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk
- 2 Tablespoons Nut Butter
- Few shakes of Cinnamon
Crock Pot Chicken Taco’s have become a favorite at my house. How can you beat having something cook for you while you do other things or while you are gone to work. I made this Monday night when I got home from work and by 8pm they were ready. I had to sample one, well I had a 1/2 and my husband had the other half.
With just a few ingredients, you will be surprised at how much flavor it packs.
Place the chicken in the crock pot and cover with the diced tomatoes with or without chilies, or you can use salsa if you prefer. You can also add a few tablespoons of taco seasoning powder. I just added a tablespoon of chili powder.
With about an hour left to cook I added a can of corn and a can of black beans.
Pull out the chicken and shred and then mix well with all the ingredients.
Serve on a tortilla with shredded lettuce and shredded cheese. Or make a big nacho, there’s really no wrong way of serving up this taste meal.
Dinner is done. It’s Taco Tuesday!
This recipe makes 8 really large taco’s.
- 1 envelope taco seasoning, or seasoned to your taste
- 2 to 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies or a jar of salsa (16 oz)
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can of corn
Dump everything into a crock pot and give it a little stir to blend the seasoning with the salsa or can of tomatoes. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork. During the last hour of cooking add a can of corn and can of black beans.
Question of the day: What’s the last meal you made using a crock pot?
