Happy Monday!!!
And it's the last Monday in January!!! I feel like this month FLEW by! How is everyone doing with their New Years Resolutions!?? Did you know that only about 8% of people actually keep their resolution?? IF your resolution was anything to do in health/fitness, then this recipe will help keep you on track but provide a 'cheating' feel....

Creamy Mexican Chicken is not only delicious but it is super easy and nutritious! Let's face it, usually when you hear "creamy", you think that the dish can't be all too clean and healthy? NOT this one! So, if you struggle to stay on track, this meal may be perfect for, with all the time saving benefits of a crockpot, you have extra time to get that workout in! ;)


-4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts (may be frozen)
-15 oz. can black beans, drained
-7 oz. canned chopped green chilies
-1 cup frozen corn
-1 large onion, diced
-3 bell peppers, chopped
-15 oz. can diced tomatoes
-Salt and pepper, to taste
-1 tsp. paprika
-1 tsp. cumin
-1 red container plain Greek yogurt
-Fresh cilantro

Add chicken breasts to slow-cooker. Top with remaining ingredients, except for Greek yogurt and fresh cilantro. Cook on low for 8 hours, until chicken breasts begin to fall apart easily.
Remove chicken and shred. Add back to crockpot. Add Greek yogurt, cover and continue to cook on low for 30 minutes. Stir well, top with fresh cilantro. Serve with tortillas, or over quinoa or rice.
