Crockpot Salsa Chicken

PREP TIME: 5 minutes  COOK TIME: 3 hrs on high, 6-8 hours on low  SERVES: 4-8 


I love coming home to a warm dinner that is ready and waiting. This slow cooker chicken recipe is simple and requires no prep work. The chicken is slow-cooked in the crockpot and is nice and juicy. Pair the salsa chicken with corn tortillas and all the fixin's you like.

I posted this recipe a long time ago, thanks for reviving it. I suggest using TJ’s Mango Salsa. This dish is divine. Also, if you have any left over for a second night, use delight, use a quarter cup, or to taste, of cream cheese and melt into the chicken/sauce as you re-heat it. I serve it over rice.
