Southwestern Chicken

This recipe is WONDERFUL, and it's soooo easy! I made it for dinner tonight... just popped it in the crockpot this morning, came home and it was ready!

Five zesty ingredients add up to a lot of flavor!

2 cans (15 ½ oz. each) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 jar (16 oz.) chunky salsa, divided
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz. each)
1 cup (4oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese

In 5 quart slow cooker, combine corn, black beans, and ½ cup salsa. Top with chicken; pour remaining salsa over chicken. Cover and cook on high 3 to 4 hours or on low 7 to 8 hours or until meat juices run clear. Sprinkle with cheese; cover until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

Yield: 6 servings.
