Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken

Last night’s recipe from Carrie’s Gluten-Free Slow Cooker cookbook was by far the easiest meal of the week – just two ingredients went in the slow cooker, salsa and chicken, and it came out great!

All I had to do was put the chicken in the cooker, top it with salsa (I used my own homemade salsa), and cook it on low for a few hours.

I ended up cutting the low end of the cooking time in the recipe in half instead of just reducing it by an hour, and this time I didn’t overcook it!  After it was done I shredded it up with two forks.

So delicious!  It needed a bit of spice, as my salsa was very mild, but otherwise I didn’t add anything else to the chicken.

We ate the shredded chicken in tacos, which were absolutely delicious, and there was plenty left over.  Quick, simple and tasty – my kind of dinner!

  1. YAY!! isn't that the easiest thing ever??? I LOVE that you used your own homemade salsa! How cool!! And I'm so glad you figured out how to reduce the time to make it work in your slow cooker! That's so awesome! Using that slow cooker you could make that recipe on a weeknight and have dinner ready! Awesome job Jenni!!

    1. I did the BBQ chicken last night and actually forgot to get it started on time so reduced cook time to 2.5 hours and it was still cooked through and super tasty - BLSL chicken in the slow cooker definitely perfect for weeknights :)

  2. Looks tasty!! Check your email :)

    1. You've realized how bad I am at that huh :) I have four active email accts and I'm not great at checking them all consistently!
