Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken

Adding this recipe for posterity.  I know that I made this recipe in the context of making a healthy meal, but for the life of me I can’t recall what sort of reviews it got.  I believe it was well-received.  I will make sure to update this post if I end up making this again.
