Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken - Quick and easy, three ingredient slow-cooker chicken, perfect for simple weeknight meals, wrapped up in a tortilla with refreshing cucumber.
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.
How to Make Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
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.

How simple and delicious does this sound. Perfect to feed a crowd. Awesome to make a batch and have great leftovers for the week too.
Yes, I like leftovers, so this is so perfect!
Believe it or not, I love to add salsa to my chicken dishes though I never tried it in the slow cooker. Looks delish.
I bet it would bake in the oven pretty well too :). I'll try it next time!
The finish product looks great and I would love to try it since its a few simple steps. I'm sure its delish as well. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Fred, it's such a simple and rewarding recipe.

Only 3 ingredients? I bet it also smells so tasty when you walk in the door at the end of the day, too.
Yes it totally does! 🙂
Looks like my type of wrap! I ll have to find myself some of that seasoning! Is it online?

That looks so delicious! I love making shredded chicken, my favorite is to put them on top of nachos!
Ya, that would be awesome, great idea!
