My family is pretty busy on the weekends. Each of my three children have a game to attend (1 soccer and 2 football). Sometimes we don’t get home until 7:00 and I am in no mood to cook. I usually prepare a crockpot meal so we can eat soon after we get home. We’re usually all tired and starving so it’s the perfect solution. My daughter loves to help out in the kitchen, but it’s hard when we’re always running errands, heading to practices, and doing homework. This is the perfect time for her to help because we can take our time in the mornings. She’s in 1st grade so we usually don’t tackled anything to complicated. She’s a great partner in the kitchen and loves to learn and I enjoy showing her how to measure ingredients and spending the time with her. International Cook with your Kids Day is this week, October 15. It’s a great reminder, that doing something as simple as preparing dinner, is an easy and fun way to spend time together.
Chicken Salsa Verde
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 2 cups green salsa (16 oz bottle)
- Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (Creamy Four Cheese variety)
Toppings (all optional)
- sour cream
- shredded cheese
I usually have a directions section after my ingredients, but I’m not really sure that this even needs directions because it’s so easy. Just put the chicken and salsa in the crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours. Right before you eat you’ll want to heat up the rice in the microwave- 90 seconds and it’s hot. Shred the chicken using 2 forks and stir in the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice. (Here’s an Ibotta coupon for $.75 off!) You’re ready to go now. Serve with desired toppings. I just picked up all the ingredients while I was shopping at Walmart. Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice is really easy to find. Here’s a fantastic contest and I encourage you to enter below. You have the chance for your family win $15,000 and $30,000 for a cafeteria makeover at your child’s school. #UncleBensPromo Sweepstakes
