Salsa Chicken is my absolute favorite crockpot recipe. It makes a ton of food that you can save and reheat easily. We have served 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.
