Salsa Chicken

 You can't get much easier than this salsa chicken. It's great in the crockpot. I've also done it in the oven, and it would also work well in a pressure cooker.

Salsa Chicken:


6 Chicken breasts (I like to make plenty to last through the week or freeze)

1 1/2 cups salsa (Mateos or Herdez are my favorites)

salt and pepper

juice from 1 lime

handful of cilantro, chopped

 All you do is throw the chicken breasts in the pot. Shake a little salt and pepper over them. Pour on the salsa. Then put your crockpot on high for 3-4 hours. When it's done cooking, shred and add lime and cilantro. Super simple, but such great flavors! Mateos salsa is super delicious. The green Herdez salsa is my 2nd choice.

You can also made this in a baking dish in the oven. Bake at 375 F degrees for about 45 minutes.

 This chicken can go on anything Mexican or Tex Mex. We put it in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, taco salad, quesadillas, tortilla soup, tostadas, street tacos....Can you tell we eat a lot of Mexican food? My husband spend 2 years on a church mission to Mexico, so it's a regular at our house. This same recipe would work great with a beef or pork roast as well. I would just do those for double the time on low to ensure the meat was nice and tender. It's super versatile. I hope you enjoy it!

Be sure to pin it for later!!
