Dear Home Ec 101,
What can I put in the crock pot with some chicken breasts? I’m not wanting to dump a hunk of cream of salt and fat, Ummmm I mean cream of chicken in on top. other suggestions for something a bit different.

Who am I to knock salt and fat? They both have a role. (Plus, you can make your own cream of mushroom soup).
If you’re looking for a change of pace, why not try salsa? Put the chicken in the crock, and add about a cup of your favorite salsa. (Don’t worry about measuring it, just dump a little in). Cook until tender, then shred with forks and serve in tacos, chimichangas, or burritos.
To stretch the meat, add a can of black beans after shredding and heat through.
You can also get a flavor similar to roast chicken.
