Salsa Chicken

The salsa chicken was a recipe I came across on Pinterest, I believe, and modified to be safe for Mandie.  My baked bean recipe is a combination of many I have experimented with over the years, and have made completely Mandie safe.  The chicken is fantastic, as it cooks in the crock pot! This recipe could easily be modified to use your favorite brand of salsa.  I may even play with cooking the rice in the slow cooker with the chicken. 

Salsa Chicken Over Rice

5 chicken breasts
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 diced green pepper
1 diced Vidalia onion
1/2 fish pepper, diced
2 Tbsp. pure cane sugar
3 cups jasmine rice
chicken broth

Combine tomatoes, pepper, onion, fish pepper, and sugar in a bowl.  Mix well. Pour 1/2 of mixture on bottom of crock pot.  Lay chicken breasts on top of salsa. Add the rest of the salsa on top of the chicken.  Cook on high for 4 hours.  After 4 hours, make sure chicken is fully cooked, then using two forks, shred it finely, and mix with salsa.  Leave lid off while you cook the rice. 
In a rice cooker, combine rice and chicken broth.  Cook until done.    Serve chicken and salsa mixture on top of the rice.
