Prepared salsa and convenient canned corn and beans add fun color, texture and flavor to this chicken dish. I usually serve it with salad and white rice. Our children love it! —Karen Waters, Laurel, Maryland


  • 2 cans (15-1/4 ounces each) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) chunky salsa
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the corn, black beans and 1/2 cup salsa. Top with chicken and remaining salsa.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is tender. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
