Crock Pot Chic

I've recently changed jobs, which I love, but the new hours are throwing me off.  Mr. T and I like to eat earlier than later, so getting home at 6:30 and whipping something up is not the easiest task.  To alleviate this problem, I've recently started researching crock pot recipes.  I've got a crock pot on my registry, but this impatient girl just couldn't wait to start cooking.  SO, for the time being I'm using this baby.

Isn't she a beaut!  This actually isn't my exact one, just an identical version of mine, sans the big chip in the top right corner. But no worries, mine still has the harvest gold tone and is adorned with the oh-so-seventies motif of fondue pots and sea food creatures. It was a gift to my mom from a boyfriend before she met my dad.  Mom and Dad are going on their 33rd year of marriage this summer, so this thing is very seasoned to say the least.

The recipe I'm trying tonight is incredibly simple.  I seem to always be drawn to recipes with the fewest amount of ingredients.

Salsa Chicken
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 oz sour cream (I used reduced fat)
8 oz salsa
Mix salsa and sour cream in crock pot.  Add chicken breasts and make sure they are fully coated in the liquid.  Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat

THAT'S IT!  Let's hope that it turns out a little more flavorful than that bland name.  If it's a keeper we'll definitely be renaming the recipe.  I'll keep you posted!


  1. I've had a crock pot for a year now but I'm too scared to use it! Let me know how this goes!

  2. Sounds yummy! Give bbq pulled chicken a try- its my fave and super easy:
    1/2 bottle of fave bbq sauce
    4 chicken breasts
    1 chopped onion
    1 pull pork spice pack
    Cook on high for 6 hours
    Love the blog!

  3. I have a TON of crock pot recipes...honestly I'm always scared to use the thing when I'm going to be away from home all day, though...haha

  4. I was scared at first, too. Especially since mine is older than I am. Turn your crock pot on low and feel the inside of it. It stays at such a low temperature that it's safety is not a concern to me. Try it once and I promise you'll love it! And Katie, I will definitely be trying your BBQ Pulled Chicken soon! YUM!

  5. Yay!! Another Greenville blogger!! I've been hunting and not finding a ton... can't wait to read more of your stuff! Found you off of your Velo Fellow review.
