Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

This healthy and flavorful salsa chicken recipe practically cooks itself, and the end result is a perfect filling for chicken tacos.

TOTAL TIME4-5 hours


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs total)
  • 3 cups Fresh Cravings Restaurant Style Salsa
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • Optional: fresh lime wedges for serving


  1. Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker and cover with salsa. Toss until the chicken is covered.
  2. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 6-8 hours), or until the chicken shreds easily with a fork. Shred the chicken in the slow cooker and toss with the remaining salsa and juices until well-mixed. Serve immediately, or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days. (This chicken also freezes well.)
