Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
I’m excited to share this quick and easy recipe with you today!
If you made my Southwest Seasoning Spice Mix from my last post, then you’re already a step ahead on this recipe. If you make my red salsa recipe or have pretty much any red salsa in your fridge, and a couple chicken breasts, then you’re ready to go.
Honestly that’s it for ingredients. How easy? The result is a flavorful, hands-off, healthy dinner recipe. Just place the chicken breasts on the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle over the southwest spice mix. Add the salsa. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on high for about 3 hours. On low, I’m guessing it would probably be about 7 hours, but I’ve only ever cooked it on high.
Once the chicken is done, serve it however you want. I usually serve it in a wrap topped with vegetables. For these photos I added some cucumber, red onion and cilantro. It would be great with some refried beans spread on the wrap and some corn and diced tomato. You could also add it to a bed of rice with some vegetables. Enjoy! Let me know how you serve it up.
