Remember, how in my last dinner post, I told you we had bought mutant chicken breasts from T&T? Well, I took the last 2 pieces we had, and made this recipe. At first, I wasn’t sure about making it, as it’s pretty high in sodium, but I went for it anyway. When I read that I would need ‘Neufchatel cheese’, I was like what IS that?! But, I quickly found out it’s very similar to cream cheese. Otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered making this recipe, if I had to go out of my way to find this cheese LOL I personally have never seen this cheese, in the grocery stores I shop at, but I wasn’t looking for it either? The added cream cheese (which looking back now I should’ve only added 3/4 of the brick), makes it turn the not so pretty colour above, but don’t let that fool you. Next time I’ll add more colourful veggies, to bump up the pretty factor 🙂
So, after making it on Friday, we finally had it tonight over some basmati rice. First off, I tasted it while it was cold, and it tasted like chicken salad with a kick. I could definitely eat this cold!! But, tonight we did heat it up, and it was NUMMY. Now the salsa makes it slightly (in our taste) spicy, so if you’re sensitive to it, just use a mild or green salsa instead. If you’re in the mood for a quick to prepare crockpot meal, I’d definitely say to give this one a try!!
