Another Diet Dish – But Good

With Bear on a diet, I really have to work to find meals to stay in his guidelines that we can both eat. This chicken dish is done in a slow cooker with salsa on top which  I shredded when done and used for tacos. Bear found non gluten flour type tortillas. He was excited to have a change and any Mexican type food.

It’s a very simple recipe which called for four chicken breasts. I cut it back to three chicken breasts and substituted red kidney beans because I didn’t have black beans on hand. I used a mixture of very hot salsa and mild salsa, again because that is what I had on hand. It actually made enough that I can use the other half for a Tex/Mex salad. Re-heat chicken mixture and spoon over a large salad.

This recipe I got from the Advocare 24 Day Challenge Cookbook.
