Super Easy Family Dinner Recipe (Part 2)

I didn’t think I could find another recipe as fabulous and easy as my Salsa Verde Pork.

It takes less than 10 minutes of hands-on work, and the most strenuous part of it is opening the jar of salsa.

Salsa Verde Pork was my go-to meal on those mornings when I realized Mr. Domestic CEO and I were going to be home late and wouldn't want to do much cooking in the evening.

It’s the perfect dinner recipe if I only have a few minutes in the morning to prep something in the crock-pot.Well, last Sunday, while doing my weekly meal planning, I searched on Food.com for a new way to make chicken. When I sorted by most popular, Crock-Pot Chicken with Black Beans and Cream Cheese came up near the top of the list. Admittedly, I’ve seen it a few times, but have ignored it because it didn’t look quite as healthy as I normally like to cook (it calls for an entire brick of cream cheese), but I figured one super-creamy dinner wouldn’t kill us (don’t tell Nutrition Diva, though!).

So yesterday morning I gathered all the ingredients (there are 5), labored over preparing everything (I had to open cans!), and started cooking (I pushed Start on my crock-pot). About 6 hours later, I again had to labor (I opened a package of cream cheese and put the block on top of the chicken). I literally spent about 4 minutes preparing this entire meal.

When Mr. Domestic CEO got home that night, he was absolutely amazed with this new dish and praised himself for having married such a cooking goddess. Given how easy it was and how much we enjoyed it, I think this chicken recipe will become a monthly repeater in our house. And my crock-pot is getting promoted to counter-top status.
