Here’s another good recipe to have ready when you get home from  work or a sports outing.

Slow Cooker Cowboy Chicken

4-6 chicken breasts

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoons Dijon Mustard

2 cups salsa (any type)

15 oz. can corn, drained

15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup sour cream (plus extra for serving)

Brown rice (for serving)

Place chicken in a 5-6 quart greased slow cooker.

In medium bowl mix brown sugar, mustard, and salsa.

Pour mixture over chicken. Add water to cover chicken, if needed. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.

With 30 minutes of cook time remaining remove the lid and shred the chicken using two forks.

Add the beans, corn, and sour cream to the slow cooker and mix together with the chicken. Replace lid and cook for remaining 30 minutes.

Serve over rice with sour cream.
