Salsa Chicken

Category Poultry

This recipe is so easy. It's just chicken with salsa dumped over it. You can throw it together in the morning and keep it in the fridge until you are ready to cook it. You can also cook it in a crock pot. It goes great with baked potatoes and sour cream.



  • Salsa
  • chicken (I like to use skinless, boneless breasts)


Place chicken in baking dish or crockpot. Cover with salsa. Cook at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes, if cooking in oven or 4-6 hours in a crockpot. That's all there is to it. Bake some potatoes and throw together a salad and you have a quick and easy dinner.

I do this but cook it in a frying pan. Once the chicken is done, I top it with shredded cheddar cheese, and let it melt. I serve it with spanish rice.

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • One envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 jar of salsa (approximately 1 1/2 cups salsa)


Place 6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot. It is okay if you start with frozen chicken, allow 2 hours extra cooking time. Sprinkle one packet of taco seasoning mix all over top of chicken (I like to use the low-sodium version that McCormick's sells, but any brand is fine). On top of that pour one bottle of salsa or picante sauce (any size). Use mild or medium, or hot if your family likes it that way. Set slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours. That's it!

This is so good shredded for tacos or tucked into burritos! Even good eaten by itself. Couldn't be easier, and it smells so good while cooking!
