Crockpot Chicken with Corn & Black Beans

I found this recipe on the WeightWatchers Message Boards and decided to give it a try. I used fat-free cream cheese and it was quite noticeable. If you do not mind the obvious taste of the fat-free cream cheese then go right ahead and use it. If you are more concerned with the overall taste than the fat content then use regular cream cheese or compromise with the reduced fat spread. Regardless of my cream cheese decision, this recipe was quite easy and enjoyable. I will be adding it to my meal-planning options.

Crockpot Chicken with Corn & Black Beans

4-5 boneless chicken breasts
1 can black bean
1 can corn
1 jar salsa
1 package cream cheese

Place the frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot. Add 1 can of black beans (drained), 1 jar of salsa, and 1 can of corn (drained). Keep in crockpot on high for about 4-5 hours or until chicken is cooked. Add 1 package of cream cheese (just throw it on top!) and let sit for about 1/2 hour.

4-5 servings

Unfortunately, I do not have the points on this. I plan on calculating the NI one of these days and will update this posting when I do.

I finally tried this recipe last night - it's very good! Even the guy liked it, and he usually doesn't like beans. I used full fat cream cheese and no corn, because I made it with what we had in the fridge and pantry.
