Slow Cooker Creamy Southwest Chicken Recipe

When you have a kid or two and even if you don’t! You likely know what I mean. That last couple of hours of the day can get quite hectic as everyone gets house becomes settled and gets hungry.

We look to have our routine down for now, but even so, I find myself standing in the front of the refrigerator looking for answers to completing our meals. But filling the space on the plate next to the entree is usually where it gets tricky.

Meanwhile, the growling stomachs and hunger meltdowns begin and soon we find ourselves venturing into very crabby territory, which doesn’t help my kitchen imagination.

Last week I found myself in a pinch as the day was winding down, dinnertime was approaching and my toddler was trying to eat crayons. And then I recalled this was at the freezer.

Considering that the Veggies were seasoned with a Southwest Style sauce, so I proceeded with the subject and created a fast, easy chicken and lightened up creamy sauce to go along with the side. Everything was so zesty and flavourful that I’m convinced that this meal will become a regular on rotation.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp Chipotle powder, split
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 can diced Tomatoes
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1/4 Tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt I used 2%

Direction:

  1. Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Place Chicken breasts in the pan and cook on the first side for approximately 4-6 minutes or until browned, then flip and brown the other side another 3-5 minutes. {It’s ok if they are not completely cooked through as you’ll be returning them into the pan.
  3. Remove
  4. To the Bring to a bubble, then reduce the heat to medium-low and return the chicken breasts to the pan, nestling them into the sauce.
  5. Cover Pan and simmer for another 8-10 minutes before the chicken is fully cooked through.
  6. Eliminate Chicken once more and whisk yogurt to the sauce. Pour sauce into a blender or use an immersion blender and blend until completely smooth.
  7. To serve, ladle sauce over chicken.
