    This was given out at our meeting yesterday and here's a copy of the email that I sent out to one of the other members who didn't have anything to write on (I also sent this to my SIL)
    -Dawn

    Crockpot Sour Cream Salsa Chicken
    Serves 4 1 serving=4 Points

    4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
    1 pkg reduced sodium taco seasoning mix
    1 cup salsa
    2 TBL cornstarch
    1/4 cup light sour cream

    Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Add chicken breasts. Sprinkle with seasoning. Top with salsa. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. When ready remove chicken. Mix cornstarch with a small amount of water. Stir into salsa sauce. Stir in sour cream.

    Note: I made this today and everyone LOVED it. I served it with bulgar wheat instead of rice and everyone liked that too (bulgar wheat has half the points of white rice and a lot more fiber). Also, I didn't have any taco seasoning so I found a recipe on the internet and used that instead. In case you are out of taco seasoning, here's that recipe:

    Taco Bell Taco Seasoning
    2 TBL flour
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 1/2 tsp dried minced onion
    1 1/4 tsp salt (I only used 3/4 tsp as the above recipe calls for 'low sodium')
    1 tsp paprika
    3/4 tsp beef bullion
    1/4 tsp sugar
    1/4 tsp cayenne
    1 dash onion powder

    I've made this several times, in fact there is a Salsa Chicken thread in the Crockpot section that probably has 100 posts by now. I leave out the cornstarch and add a can of Rotel. Serve brown rice as a side dish - everyone loves it.

    This is one of my favorites too. I use the leftover chicken to take to work in a taco salad with WOW Tortilla Chips and FF ranch dressing and salsa. YUM!

    Here's a link to the original post -- there are all kinds of variations. I've never made it (I don't eat meat), but if anything would get me to change, this recipe would! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Kind of a silly question...

    Would this work without a crockpot? I was thinking of cooking on low in a big pot.

    Thanks for answering my silly question [img]graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Just had to let you know I had this last night and the family loved it! I served brown rice with it and then put it all up in the frig for lunch today. DH came home for lunch and I heated it up (combined) and put a little fat free cheddar on top and heated him up a 1pt flour tortilla. He was ooohing and aaahhing. Thanks for this great recipe.

    Hi guys [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    I made it this morning and it's YUMMY. A couple of people asked about making it w/o a crockpot. I did that this morning and it worked out just fine for me I also made a couple of other modifications. This is what I did:

    I put the salsa and chicken in a corningware dish with a glass lid. I add a little extra water (maybe 1/2-3/4cup?) to the salsa so that the chicken had something to cook in.

    I cooked the chicken and salsa covered at very low heat-(about 250) until it looked done. I was using extra thin chicken breasts, and they probably cooked for about an hour. Thicker breasts may take longer.

    I took the dish out of the oven and lifted the chicken out into a separate dish. I didn't have any cornstarch so I used a little flour to thicken the sauce....then stirred in the sour cream. I think because I had added some water to the salsa, then thickened with flour I had A LOT of sauce. So much so that I reserved about 1cup on the side, and poured the rest over the cooked chicken.

    I froze the extra sauce, so I will have something quick to use to top some chicken breasts some time in the future....cooking for 1

    The chicken came out very tender, I couldn't wait to have some for lunch because it smells marvelous.

    Try it!

    Ok, so I've had this recipe for over a year now and I'm JUST NOW making it for dinner tonight. instead of chicken breasts, I'm using turkey breasts. I post later and let you know how it turned out.

    This dish turned out won-der-ful! I had to pour the salsa out of the crockpot and put it into a pot on the stove in order for the corn starch to thicken. I made rice to go with it and we loved it. I wonder why it took me sooo long to make it?

    Definitely another keeper!

    I usually make this in a skillet on the stovetop instead of in the crockpot. It only takes 20-30 min, and is ready when the rice is.
