This is one of the absolute easiest slow cooker meals ever! I actually did the prep work last night while I was cooking dinner so all I had to do today was turn on the slow cooker. When I came home from work, dinner was ready (and the house smelled awesome)! The prep work took all of about 2 minutes (seriously)! During dinner, my daughter asked if we could have salsa chicken every night!
2 lbs all natural chicken breast
1 jar all natural salsa (I use Newman’s own mild or medium – just be sure to read the ingredients to make sure it really is all natural ingredients)
1 can diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted diced tomatoes)
Place chicken in crockpot. Pour in salsa and tomatoes. Chop onion and add to crockpot. Squeeze lemon juice on top. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Chicken will shred easily with a fork.
Yep, that’s it….doesn’t get much easier than that! Serve with whole wheat tortillas, black beans, a little cheese, and avocado.
