No Muss No Fuss: Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken is┬ámy absolute favorite crockpot recipe. It makes a ton of food that you can save and reheat easily. We have┬áserved it a variety of ways: over rice, in a taco salad, in tortillas with all the usual taco fixings. You could add it to some chili. It’s easy, it’s versatile, it’s delicious. And it doesn’t require a ton of ingredients so it’s pretty easy to make in a pinch.

What You’ll Need:

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 1/2 cups of salsa of your choice. (A chunky salsa works better)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • pinch of red chile powder
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice.

What You’ll Do:

  • Coat slow cooker with nonstick spray and arrange chicken breast halves in it.
  • Pour salsa over chicken.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH about 3-3 1/2 hours, until chicken is tender and cooked through. (The salsa will thin out a bit as the chicken cooks and makes it’s own juices.)
  • Stir in the cumin, chile powder and lime juice.
  • Cover and cook another 15 minutes before serving.

 

Enjoy!
