Food Children are (almost) Willing to Eat

I made this great Salsa Chicken in the crock pot last night.  Sprout ate a bite of the chicken and declared it to be "not my favorite chicken (which would be nuggets, thus the picture) but not bad."  This is high praise indeed and the grown-ups thought it was quite delicious.

I didn't take a picture of what we actually had.  Too busy eating.

I know it's not fun...but having the kids not throw themselves on the floor in fits of agony over how horribly disgusting their dinner is is about as good as it gets some days.

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
Put the following into a slow cooker (mine is 4 quarts):

4 Frozen chicken breasts  sprinkled with
1 packet of low sodium Taco Seasoning
1 can of Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 cup of salsa (I used Chi Chi's Mild)
1 tiny can of green chilis

Turn the cooker on low for 6-8 hours.
Shred the chicken up in the sauce.
Serve over rice and topped with sour cream if you really feel fancy.

Sounds delicious, easy ... and healthy! A perfect meal for busy moms. Plus, even if the little ones only eat a bit, introducing them to new foods at a young age can really instill healthy eating habits. Thanks for the recipe!
