Chicken with Black Beans and Corn

This is one of my favorites, it easy to make and freezes well.  Add some green onions, lettuce and light sour cream to a low carb tortilla to make a low point burrito.
Crockpot Recipe
Chicken with Black Beans and Corn

Makes 10 - 1 cup servings.
WW Points+ : 5 points per cup


16 oz fat free salsa   
1 1/4 oz reduced-sodium taco seasoning   
14 oz canned diced tomatoes   
2 1/2 pounds uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts
12 oz frozen yellow corn   
1 medium fresh lime, juiced   
1 cup cilantro   
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed   

Place the salsa, taco seasoning, lime juice, and half a cup of cilantro into a crockpot, and stir to combine. Add the chicken breasts, and stir to coat with the salsa mixture. Set the crockpot on High and cook until the chicken is very tender for 3 hours. Shred chicken with a knife and fork ; add diced tomatoes, more cilantro, corn and black beans. Cook for another hour.
Serve with rice, tortillas, tacos or in a salad.

Tip: Place 1 cup servings into sandwich bags, seal and place into a larger freezer bag, for individual servings that are easy to microwave. Dish will freeze for 3-4 months.
