Chicken and black beans!

I had seen this recipe floating around on several sites I follow and I thought I would give it a try.  It was a wonderful hearty meal and high in protein.  It is really easy and perfect for career moms who are gone all day.

Here you go!
4 frozen bs chicken breasts
2 cans corn drained
2 cans black beans drained
1 15 ounce jar of salsa (or use your own homemade)
2 blocks cream cheese (I used regular but light would work too)

Place frozen chicken in bottom of crock.  Pour corn, beans and salsa on top.  Cook on low for 7-8 hours.  Stir and break up chicken.  The chicken should just fall apart.    Place two bricks of cream cheese on top and leave alone for 30-45 minutes.  Stir all together  and serve over noodles or baked potato or rice. 

Kids ate all of this.  It makes a lot!!!!
