Crockpot Salsa Chicken {Dinner Recipe}

Crockpot Salsa Chicken 1

I absolutely LOVE easy crock pot recipes that can be turn into multiple meals throughout the week. And this crock pot salsa chicken is just that.

Simple ingredients, simple instructions, simple meals… but you don’t have to keep the meals simple. Shred this chicken and use it in multiple dishes: enchilada casserole, chicken (tortilla) soup, quesadillas, rolled tacos, chicken ropa vieja (my favorite) and more!

And with a fridge full of yumy salsa from Wholly salsa how could I not make this? I used their mild salsa for this dish but am excited to try changing up the flavors with the pineapple or red pepper mango flavors too. 

Crockpot Salsa Chicken

  • 4 chicken breast
  • 1 tub Wholly salsa
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 can corn

Place chicken in the bottom of the crock pot. Dump all of the other ingredients on top.

    Who says you can’t use the crockpot in the summer!!! Love this recipe, and I love crock pot cooking, it makes life soooo much easier!

  2. Cook on high or low???

    • I always cook on low for 4-5 hours. But if you need it quicker you can cook on high for 2-3 hours. Just make sure the chicken is thoroughly cooked. And if you’re working with frozen chicken cook on low for 7-8 hours, high for 4 hours.
