Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

This is such an easy recipe to put together. I’ve been making it for a while now, after first hearing of it from my friend Amy, then my friend Sara from My Imperfect Kitchen made almost the same thing. Check out her recipe here.  You may have even made this yourself, but I wanted to share it with those that haven’t. I normally make it for tacos, and it’s great, but you could serve it over rice or even add some veggie’s like corn to it and eat it as is. Best part of it is, it’s great for busy days! Only three ingredients, just put it in the crock pot in the morning, go about your day, and finish it when you get home!

Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 16 ounce jar salsa, any brand and as spicy or not as you like

1  1.25 ounce packet taco seasoning

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot, pour in the salsa and the taco seasoning, stir the salsa and taco sauce to combine.  Set crock pot to LOW for 6 hours, or HIGH for 4 hours, then shred the chicken. I find it easiest to do this by removing the chicken from the crock pot onto a cutting board and shredding with a fork and a steak knife. Put the chicken back in the crock pot, stir, and continue to cook on low for 1 more hour.

See my awesome looking tacos? Don’t they look yummy?!
