Salsa Chicken

Jump to recipe

I had this chicken for the first time over at my friend LeiAnn’s house in Texas.  It was so good I came home and made it myself.  She got the recipe off of Pinterest which you can check out here.  I changed the quantities but the ingredients are the same.  With only 3 ingredients, it is super simple to make and economical too.

This recipe is placed in the crockpot and set to cook all day until the chicken is fork tender.  I usually double the recipe to make 2 different meals that week, or I make one recipe and freeze the meat to make another one later.  The recipe I have shared here is the doubled recipe.  Feel free to cut the quantity in half if you would like.

This will be a crockpot favorite.


  • Use a mild or a hot salsa depending on what your family likes.
  • Use this meat for chicken tacos, Rotel chicken casserole, or chicken nachos.
  • This chicken freezes really well in freezer safe quart or gallon sized bags.
  • Drain off extra liquid if you want to use it for nachos.
