Creamy Garlic Lime Salsa Chicken (Crock Pot)

This was an incredible meal! I do like salsa chicken but have always found it to be a little boring. Well, not anymore! While at the grocery store last week I came across a Garlic Lime Salsa Verde. I decided to use that, along with some cream cheese for creaminess and it was delish! I served mine over brown rice but this chicken would make a great filling for tacos, burritos, or enchiladas.

Creamy Garlic Lime Salsa Chicken (Crock Pot)
Serves 4
Cal 215, Carbs 10, Fat 5.7, Protein 26.7

1 lb boneless skinless Chicken (I used tenderloins)
1 cup garlic lime salsa verde
1 tbsp. chili powder
6 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, cut into chunks
1/4 reduced fat cheddar cheese

Spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker and sprinkle with chili powder. Pour the salsa on top. Cook on low for 4 hours.  One hour before it is finished cooking, carefully pull the chicken out of the slow cooker and shred. Put the chicken back into the slow cooker and gently stir to combine. Place the cream cheese and shredded cheddar on top of the mixture. Continue cooking. Stir and serve over hot cooked rice. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks so much Shelby! I hope you enjoy it!

  3. just popping over from the Memories by the Mile Link Party. Your salsa verde chicken is a flavor I can relate to! I just love the idea of the creaminess. I bet it would go well with fish, as well. I have pinned, liked and tweeted, and g+-ed. I would love it if you would drop by my site at http://www.kneadedcreations.com for a short visit! I will look forward to seeing you there! Deb @ Kneaded Creations.

  5. Just wondering how much cheddar cheese and when it is used on the recipe? Thanks!

  6. I used 1/4 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese. I added it in with the cream cheese.
