Guilty Pleasures: Salsa Chicken… YUM!

Recently, I tried out a new recipe, given to me by a teacher at school. It is so simple, healthy,
and yummy.

Salsa Chicken

What you need:

  • 2-3 chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 1 can of black beans, drained
  • 1 can of whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 jar of salsa

I have a pot that I can place in the microwave for “speed” cooking. If you have one of these pots,
(I got mine from The Pampered Chef), place all ingredients into the pot, and place in microwave for
18 minutes. (Make sure chicken is cooked all the way through.)

Oven method – place all ingredients in an oven safe pan, mix together, and bake at 375 until the
chicken is done all the way through, approx. 40 – 45 minutes.

*I have a large family, therefore, I have to double the ingredients, which adds to the cooking time.
It took 28 minutes in the microwave with the extra ingredients.

You have a full meal in nearly no time at all. My husband, who is one of the pickiest eaters that
I know, loved it. Give it a try and enjoy!

Who doesn’t like a nice, warm bowl of chili when there’s a crisp to the air? Well, my youngest son can’t stand chili, but that’s beside the point…lol

Anyhoo, I love my chili. With lots of cheese… and… a dollop of vanilla icing.

No, that is not a typo. I love sweet with my spicy.

Usually, I make cinnamon rolls and cut one up into my chili. But if I don’t make them, I settle for the icing. I know that I’m weird! lol

Since I like the combination sweet and salty also, I love honey with my hamburgers and on my french fries! Again, weird, I know…

Do you have any weird “guilty pleasure” that you would like to share with us? Feel free to comment.

Be Blessed ya’ll!
