Slow Cooker Southwestern Chicken

After two years of Mason being the pickiest eater ever he’s finally starting to eat the way he used to eat. He’s finally willing to try just about anything that we put in front of him. Now of course Kyla has taken Mason’s place as pickiest eater but I know that in due time she will see the light again just like Mason did. Having a picky eater can make it hard to do slow cooker meals since  everything is all in one pot but for me I’m finding that for whatever reason my kids seem to eat more of everything when it’s all in one pot.


So I’ve been trying a lot of slow cooker or one pot meals because not only do my kids seem to love them but they’re easy and delicious. It’s pretty much a trifecta. You can not get much easier than this slow cooker southwestern chicken unless of course it puts itself in the slow cooker. Which would actually be the easiest thing ever.

Okay, ready for this? It’s so easy it needs only two explanation pictures. First dump 1.5lbs of clean, trimmed chicken into your slow cooker. Then add one can of petite diced tomatoes, one can of black beans, rinsed and drained, one can of corn and 1 packet of dry ranch dressing. I used this size packet but I just recently got this and am so excited! It’s cheaper at Costco but if you don’t have a Costco near you that’s still a great price compared to the individual packets.


Set on low for 6-8 hours. 30 minutes before serving put a block of cream cheese in the pot and stir. Let the cream cheese melt completely before serving.


Serve over rice or with tortillas.


Mason my recovering picky eater declared this to be one of the best meals I’ve ever made him. I about fainted on the spot. Luckily I didn’t and I was able to enjoy my meal just as much as he did.
