Mellow Monday: Cowboy Chicken

Another weekend has passed.  Two more days in our memory book.  A weekend jammed of great memories for sure, a fun wedding beaming with personality and beautiful smiles as well as a day at the lake with one of our favorite friends, Uncle "Googe."

Today the goslings and I mellow out and gear up for the week ahead with leftover pizza for lunch and hopefully long naps in the afternoon.  I am hoping that your weekend was packed with as many great memories as ours.

What are your plans for today?  Make sure you include this yummy slow cooker recipe in your plans.

I found today's slow cooker recipe from a new website, Moms Who Think.  A website with great recipes, celebration ideas, parenting tips and diet/nutrition advice.  I've enjoyed looking through its resources and I know you will too.


  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 2 cups salsa (any type)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained 
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup sour cream (plus extra for serving)
  • Brown rice (for serving


Place chicken in a 5-6 quart greased (I used non-stick spray) slow cooker.  In medium bowl mix brown sugar, mustard, and salsa.  Pour mixture over chicken. Add water to cover chicken, if needed. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.  With 30 minutes of cook time remaining remove the lid and shred the chicken using two forks.  Add the beans, corn, and sour cream to the slow cooker and mix together with the chicken. Replace lid and cook for remaining 30 minutes.  Serve over rice with sour cream.
