Tex Mex Chicken

I just wanted to share with you a super quick meal for weekday nights, you can throw it together in a few minutes in the morning in your crock pot and have dinner when you get home. Just make up some rice or use some left over from a previous nights meal and you are ready. After making this up I wish I would have added some black beans and avocado over the top. YUM!
Tex Mex Crock pot chicken

4 pieces of chicken (I used breast but thighs would probably be great)
1/2 cup italian dressing of your choice (I used a creamy balsamic)
1 can of tomatoes with green chilis (like Rotello)
3 gloves of garlic minced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp onion powder

Rise and dry chicken, Stab chicken a couple times with a fork. Put chicken and dressing in a zip top bag, marinate for 15-20. Add the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot, turn on low. Add marinaded chicken to crock pot, discard remaining marinade. Put on lid and cook on low 6-8 hours. Serve with rice or side of your choice.
