Option 2: Crockpot Southwestern Chicken
OK, so technically, the cooking part of this meal takes longer than 15 minutes. But your actual prep time is under 15, so we just had to include it. This recipe comes from Plotkin, a busy mom herself, and is one of her latest quick-to-make dishes. In the morning, simply place the following into a slow cooker: 1/2 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thighs or a combination of the two; 1 cup frozen corn; a can of black beans, rinsed and drained; a jar of salsa (red or green); a can of green chilies; and 1 tablespoon cumin.
