Salsa Chicken

 Talk about THE.easiest.dinner.EVER.  !!  I like to think that I came up with this one on my own during my schoolteaching years, but alas, it lacks any sort of creativity and exclusivity to be patented as my own.  However, don't think that keeps this chicken from being true genius!  Be creative with how you serve this: over rice with cheese melted on top, in burritos, in enchiladas, hard taco shells--really, the possibilities are endless!  This is a great start to a Mexican-themed feast!!!

Salsa Chicken

2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar of your favorite salsa
a small splash of water

Trim any excess fat off each chicken breast.  Place chicken (thawed or frozen, it doesn't matter!) in slow cooker.  Pour the jar of salsa over topAdd a small splash of water.  Cover; cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5, until cooked through and fork tender.

Serve however your heart desires!


  1. Throwing this in some burritos sounds like the PERFECT idea to me!

  2. Yep! That is usually what I do, along with some fresh guac, and cheddar cheese! Hmmm....
