Sour Cream Salsa Chicken – Crockpot Recipe

Menu Plan Monday

Hi everyone! As the new year begins I’m trying to be a little more organized with meal planning again. Here’s what we’re eating this week!

Monday: I’m trying a new recipe for the Crock Pot, called Sour Cream Salsa Chicken. I think Mondays are perfect days for slow cooker meals, don’t you? Here’s the recipe I’m trying:


  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 package reduced-sodium taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream


Spray the crockpot with cooking spray. Add the chicken breasts. Sprinkle with Taco Seasoning. Top with salsa. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. When ready to serve, remove the chicken from the pot. Place about 2 T cornstarch in a small amount of water. Stir well. Stir the cornstarch mixture into salsa sauce. Stir in 1/4 cup of light sour cream.
Tuesday: Chick Fil A night!
Wednesday: Sandwiches made on our panini press, with homemade tomato basil soup. I’ll do nuggets and veggies for the kids.
Thursday: Pasta with marinara sauce and garlic chicken, with veggies.
Friday: Another slow cooker meal – this time it’s BBQ chicken sandwiches. I’m going to bake sweet potatoes for me and Brian, and the boys will get to have french fries.
Saturday: Leftovers – boring, but easy!
Hope you all have a great week and that it’s a wonderful start to the new year.

    How was the sour cream salsa chicken? And what kind of panini press do you have? Do you use it a lot?

    We LOVED the chicken! We’re going to have it for leftovers with shredded lettuce, chips, black beans & shredded cheese to make a chicken taco salad. It’d probably also be really good in chicken enchiladas.

    Our panini press is a Food Network one from Kohl’s. It also has plates for waffles and for a griddle. We have used the panini plates quite a bit, but haven’t tried the others yet. We like having paninis with soup for dinner, and you can also open it up completely to use it as an indoor grill. The plates are removable and dishwasher safe, although we wash them by hand (they’re nonstick, so it’s easy clean up).
