FIRST of all, it's very important to understand that I don't cook. I'm really a horrible cook. My husband does about 95% of the cooking in our house.
However, I'm going to TRY NEW THINGS this year and, I found this recipe, tried it, and SHOCKED AND DELIGHTED my family.
Here are some of the actual responses:
My 12 year old son: (with shocked look): "This is actually good, Mom!"
My 11 year old daughter: "You cooked?" Then, after taking a bite, "Wow. You made this, with no help from Dad?" Then later, telling her BFF how good it was "I can't believe that my own mother made it."
I was beaming.
Ok, super easy - here it is:
Mexican CrockPot Chicken & Rice
1 or 2 lbs. chicken cutlets (boneless/skinless)
1 envelope taco seasonings
1 jar picante sauce (I used the tequila/lime kind)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Throw all this in a crock pot - mix it up and turn it on high for 3- 4 hours.
Cook some rice. (Follow the directions.)
When the rice is almost done, stir 8 oz. of sour cream into the crock pot mixture.
Serve the chicken/sauce mixture over the rice. If you want to be healthy, have a crispy green salad. (You should be doing this anyway; after all it's the beginning of the new YEAR, for cryin' out loud!).
