I’m kind of obsessed with this chicken recipe right now. I’ve made it at least once a week for the past few weeks. It’s easy, healthy, flavorful, and takes only three ingredients! Dare I say it’s perfect!? Seriously, consider it a gift.
All you need is chicken breasts (I’ve been using 3, but I think you could use more), a jar of salsa, and a packet of taco seasoning.
So you dump the salsa and taco seasoning into the crockpot and mix them, then coat the chicken in it and set the crockpot on high for 4 hours (or low for longer). Then wait. Once it’s cooked, shred it with a fork. Don’t let this step turn you off! It’s not like other recipes I’ve made where this step leaves you frustrated and sore in the shoulders. This chicken is so tender it pulls apart easily.
I love this stuff plain, in tacos, and in quesadillas. Jason’s been scarfing it down plain- I can’t make it as fast as he’s eating it! Any leftovers you do have will keep well for the next day. It’s also make a great protein addition to a salad!
I wish I could take credit for this brilliant dish, but I can’t. I got it here. Nevertheless, you can direct thank you notes to howboutsomecake [at] gmail.com 🙂
