    This recipe has an extremely high ratio of tastiness to cooking effort. It took 5 minutes to throw everything into the crock pot, then I didn’t touch it for the whole afternoon.

    Really surprised how the chicken came out – I expected the salsa to soak into it like a marinade, but they stayed tender and juicy. After the cream cheese is stirred in, the sauce looks like vomit, but we couldn’t stop eating it and had no leftovers.

    Will be making this again soon.

    My KIDS are very picky eaters and just about the only thing they eat is chicken, We were getting sick and tired of chicken so I found this recipe and we all enjoyed it even the kids as I was nervous b3ecause of the salsa they wouldn’t eat it they didn’t even know it was in there.
    I made a side of steamed rice and put the chicken on top, as it was so tender it just broke into bite size pieces, it also was so juicy… excellent recipe 5 stars for sure!!!
