I got a wild hair one day and decided to try to make chicken in the crock pot with salsa and cream cheese. I thought it would give it a good taste and texture. It turns out, I was right. I love it when that happens!
This chicken can be put together in a pinch and tastes great! We make enough for dinner and for leftovers for lunch the next day. But, you could double the recipe and freeze the leftovers for another meal down the road. We tend to use the chicken for tacos or nachos since we always gravitate toward Mexican dishes. However, this chicken would be great on salads, sandwiches, or wraps if you are really feeling frisky.
