surprise crock pot chicken crock pot


when i first saw this recipe, i was skeptical, (i mean, salsa and peanut butter??)....but the recipe came from the looney spoons cookbooks, and i have in the past enjoyed everything that has come from there!! surprised me.... the ingredients marry up very well. this recipe is fast and easy to make up and dump into the crock pot....or prepare for the freezer for a later date (instructions for a quick thaw). we loved this one...so much that my lovely daughter took all the leftovers to work and didn't even save me some for my lunch!!
