Crockpot Chicken Salsa Bake

Hi everyone… today’s post is from Sarah, who is ending a very nice an warm vacation in Florida! I (Leah) must apologize for the lack of consistency this week here on the blog. After getting off my plane on Tuesday morning, I immediately ran to the hospital. My dad was in for some diabetic/kidney issues and from there I ran to work, and then back to the hospital after. Between meeting deadlines for school, fitting in my 1/2 marathon training and work, I haven’t been able to get here to get things out for you guys to read. Again, I apologize for this and things will be resuming as of today. Thank you for your patience 🙂 Now on to the goods… Take it away Sarah!

I always have a hard time thinking of healthy meals to cook when I have company. Here is a delicious and healthy/filling recipe for a high protein meal.

Serve with this recipe if you enjoy rice!
