Sometimes I think about what The Carnivore would be like if I wasn’t around. Would he smell from unwashed clothes? Would an inch of dust collect on the mantel? Would he starve? I know he wouldn’t do a weekly grocery run to Target, so I imagine him living off Cane’s, Frosted Flakes, or possibly putting his hunter/gatherer skills to use and living off the land Bear Grylls style.
Either way, I’d like to think things would be a little bit different.
Chase is not one to cook because you know what comes with cooking? Cleaning. He hates cleaning. If I don’t have a plan for dinner, he will suggest eating out in a heartbeat. I do my best to plan meals in advance, but if he catches me with chicken thawed and no plan for it, The Carnivore’s go-to suggestion is this Salsa Chicken. I think he loves it because he doesn’t have anything to help clean up – paper plates and Crock-Pot liners are his jam, y’all.
I find comfort in knowing that if he needed to break up the monotony of Frosted Flakes, he could feed himself this Salsa Chicken.
Cast of Characters:
- 4 chicken breasts (thawed)
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 can/box cream of mushroom soup
- 1 packet low-sodium taco seasoning (we only use half)
- brown rice (optional)
In a Crock-Pot, with a liner for easy clean-up, combine cream of mushroom soup, salsa, and taco seasoning. Stir together until combined. Add chicken breasts to crock-pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 6 hours is perfect for my Crock-Pot.
While the chicken is cooking prepare your brown rice.
When your chicken is ready, top a scoop of brown rice with a chicken breast, and spoon some of that super delicious salsa mixture over the top.
Easy! Now throw that paper plate away, lift the liner out of your Crock-Pot and clean-up is done.
