Slow Cooker Taco Chicken

Can I first just say, how hot it was yesterday at the farmer's market? When I got home my babysitter was watching the news and she said the heat index was 120 degrees! No wonder, I looked like a drowned rat. I had sweat in places I didn't even know existed.

I felt much better after a cold shower, but then came the splitting headache. I seem to get those when I've been in the hot sun too long? Hmm...

Anyway, enough about my aches and pains - really, I promise you I'm only 28, not 80.

Since the heat was in full force and there was NO way I was even walking by my oven yesterday, I pulled out the crock pot. Love that little guy. I make this dish when I can't think of anything for dinner, or when it's hot, or when I'm lazy, or simply whenever I want to.

Slow Cooker Taco Chicken
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cups of your favorite salsa (I used my fresh salsa)
1 t. cumin
1 T. chili powder

Layer 1/2 of the salsa, chicken breasts, seasonings and reminder of the salsa into a sprayed crockpot. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Shred chicken with a fork and devore.

We only had two flour tortillas left, so the husband had tacos and I had a taco salad. Nothing tastes better on a really hot day than a salad. This hit the spot!

Oh, and here are some of the goodies I whipped up in the last few days...it was a good day at the market, despite the heat, and I have just a few items left. Taking all orders for my peeps in Manchester! (I'll be there tomorrow...)
