Salsa Chicken

I work part time outside of the home. Four nights a week we get home just after 5pm. On the other three days we have play dates, visit relatives and play, play, play. I am always looking for easy things to fix. I don’t love to cook and labor intensive recipes don’t seem to come out right for me. I like to keep it simple and delicious.

I really can’t remember where I got this recipe from. I have been making it for 10 years or so.

3-5 chicken breasts partially thawed
Jar of salsa (I use mild)

Basically all you do is put your chicken in the crock pot and pour in the salsa. Cook on high for 2 hours or low for 3-5 hours. Because crock-pots vary in cooking temperatures, it is a good idea to keep an eye on this one. This is not an all-day slow cook recipe. I shred the chicken with two forks just before serving.

I serve these will taco fixings. I really like to have corn chips available and tortillas. I shred up some lettuce, open a small can of black olives, dice some onion, and pull out the cheese and sour cream.

    Sometimes simple and to the point is best even though I love to spend time dabbling in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing at What’d You Do This Weekend.
