    Very good - a keeper for sure. There are just 2 of us, so I used only 1/2 each green and red pepper, and 1/2 cup cheese. All the rest I made exactly as written. Next time I will increase the corn to 1.5 cups. I didn't have much time so I cooked it on high for 2 hours then low for 2 hours. I don't think it really needs all that long, since the chicken is cut in strips. Next time I will try cooking it on low for 4ish hours. Yum yum yum!

    So easy and it gets rave reviews every time! I have used boneless chicken thighs in place of breasts, put them in whole and when cooked they fall apart with a touch of a fork. The flavour is so good and can be heated up with a spicier salsa.
