Normally my test kitchens are all about a specific recipe. And, while I will share this recipe, it is more a review of a product than anything else. I am not being compensated or anything. I just know that sometimes I see something at the store, wonder if it's any good, and wish I knew someone who had tried it so I could ask their opinion. I don't like wasting money especially when it comes to food so I tend to not be very adventurous and just randomly buy something off the shelf.

There is also a trend for everything to be from scratch when it's shared on a  blog. I don't have anything against made from scratch recipes but I also like quick and easy because, quite frankly, Martha Stewart I'm not and sometimes I just want to bust open a can of biscuits or whatever.

Because I am not prone to trying new things just willy nilly, I have no good reason for why I tried this McCormick season packet but a few weeks ago that's just what I did. Turns out it was a pretty good idea because the kids love it. I like it because it's simple and easy, and gosh darn it sometimes that's all you're looking for come dinner time ;-)



What you'll need:
1 McCormick Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Seasoning Packet
1 can black beans
1 can corn
2 cans of diced tomatoes
2 large chicken breast or 6 chicken tenderloins

What you'll do:
Put everything in the slow cooker and cook for four hours on high.
Shred the chicken.
Serve over rice.

In case you've been wondering how it tasted or you're just looking for something new to try, this gets a thumbs up from the Hadding test kitchen.

  1. This looks pretty good. Does this feed your whole family or do you need to double the recipe? Thanks! -Kristina Croley

    1. The two times I've made it Rob wasn't home to eat dinner and there was a little left. I would probably add a little bit more chicken and maybe another can of beans, and make extra rice for the whole family.

  2. The tomatoes are surprising. Looks good. Will have to try.

    1. I thought so too but it sure is good! In theory you can eat it on a tortilla but I found it to be too juicy for that.
