Recipe: Salsa Chicken

This is probably the absolute best slow-cooker chicken recipe I have ever had, and I’m reproducing it here for you all and for record keeping purposes.  It was moist & tender, flavorful, and just all-around delicious.


And that’s it.


  1. Sprinkle taco seasoning on chicken breasts.
  2. Place one container of salsa in slow cooker.
  3. Place chicken on top of salsa.
  4. Pour second container of salsa on top of chicken.
  5. Add water.
  6. Stir to mix.
  7. Cook on low, at least 4 hours, no more than 6 hours (I did 6 hours).
