Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 2 lbs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (15 oz) corn (drained)
  • 2 sweet bell peppers (chopped small)
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa

Instructions

  1. Spray the insert of the slow cooker with cooking spray.

  2. Cut chicken breasts into large bite-sized pieces and put into a mixing bowl. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cumin and salt. Mix together until chicken is coated. Dump into the slow cooker. 

  3. Add can of drained corn, 2 bell peppers that are chopped small, and salsa. Stir together and cover with the lid. 

  4. Cook on LOW heat for 5-7 hours. 

  5. Stir the chicken mixture and serve as desired. We love this as tex-mex chicken rice bowls. Layer rice, tex-mex chicken, and your favorite toppings. You can also make tacos, burritos, or even nachos! So many options. 

Recipe Notes

Calorie count is for a recipe that serves 8. Depending in how you serve this chicken, you could get more or less depending on what you make with it. We can get about 8 rice bowls when I serve this. Calories are only for one serving of the chicken mixture. It does not include rice and additional toppings. 

 

I love color so I use an orange and yellow bell pepper in this recipe. You can use two of the same color, or switch it up. Orange, yellow, red, or a green pepper will work. 

 

You will need about 2 lbs of chicken for this recipe. If the chicken breasts are larger than you may only need 3 of them. If they're smaller, you will need 4 of them.
