Salsa Chicken

Being on the road is pretty great, but there are some things that I miss. A crock-pot is one of them. Whenever I have access to one, you better believe I’m pulling that thing out, coming up with a meal, and trying something new.

I ate this salsa chicken over rice and added a little bit of white cheddar cheese and Greek yogurt. It was delicious. I also ate it plain today for lunch and it was salsa chickengreat on its own as well. Plus, it’s easy and quick, and who doesn’t need more of that this season?

Crock-Pot Salsa Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups mild salsa
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

Simply add everything to a crock-pot and cook for 3 hours on high. Remove and shred chicken. Add chicken back in and stir to incorporate.

How-To: Perfectly Grilled Sweet Corn

The summer is almost gone, but wait! If you’re in WI, you can still get fresh, local sweet corn, and have a summer meal, even now=)

I love to grill sweet corn, it’s the best. It’s super easy, too. Just soak it, grill it, shuck it, and eat it. Here’s how:

Perfect Grilled Sweet CornIMG_20180830_201539

  • 4-6 sweet corn
  • 2 gallons of water (or until the corn is completely submerged)
  • 1 large roasting pan (for soaking)

Place the corn, full husk, into a roasting pan and fill the IMG_20180830_133456pan with water. Soak for an hour or as long as you can.

Light your grill (gas or charcoal,) shake off any access water and grill the corn until the husks are burnt and black, or about 20 minutes.

Husk and eat with lots of butter (or Vegan substitute,) salt and pepper! For me, make some BBQ chicken and you’ve got the perfect summer IMG_20180830_201024meal.

BBQ chicken and grilled sweet corn= summer meal perfection. I’m sorry to everyone who will miss the summer. But me? I actually get to experience some Fall this year and I AM TOO EXCITED!

Are you a Fall lover, too?
