Featured Recipe – Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken

This recipe is great for feeding several people, or it’s great to eat throughout the week for lunch and/or dinner! Believe me, you won’t be hesitant to eat this one a couple days in a row. I will usually serve it over a cup or so of spinach, add a tbsp of plain greek yogurt and maybe a little salsa on top. It’s also great all by itself!
