Crock o'chicken

I cooked some chicken in a crockpot today. It was so simple and so, so good. This was my first time to cook just meat (or anything other than soup/chili) in the crock. The hubs and I went to lowes today and started on a home improvement project so I knew I wouldn't want to cook this evening. So we are making some Spanish rice, black beans and corn to go with it.

If you want to try it, here's what I did:
Put 1 lb frozen chicken breast, one can 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup, some taco seasoning and about two cups of homemade salsa in the crock for about 6 hours. I switched from high to medium about half way because it was sticking to the bottom.

Hurray! Thanks for posting this! Not that it matters much, but what kind of frozen chicken breast do you buy? I typically just buy regular boneless skinless breasts and then freeze them in individual little bags. I've had bad experiences with Walmart brand frozen chicken. I swear they inject it with 1/2 a cup of water per breast.

yeah I only buy my meat products from dierbergs. I usually buy their chicken or tyson all natural chicken if it's on sale.

If anyone is going to re-make this, here is my original recipe (that I gave to Sarah):

4 frozen boneless/skinless chicken breasts (or about 1 lb)

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 packet taco seasoning (I usually just make my own with chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, paprika, and garlic powder)

1 cup salsa

Cook in crockpot on low for 8 hours and you should have no sticking/burning. A half hour before eating, shred chicken in the crockpot to soak up the extra liquid/broth/whatever you call it. At this point you can add a 1/2 cup of sour cream, but I skipped this part in favor of topping it with melted cheese later. It should have the consistency of pulled pork. Yum!
