Ever faced with that moment where you know you have to cook dinner, but just can’t seem to put it together fast enough? Me too – despite my best efforts and desires to plan ahead, sometimes I just don’t feel pulled together enough to get dinner on the table for my family.

That’s why I like recipes like this easy Mexican slow cooked chicken. Small effort for big reward – those are my favorite family dinners!
