Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken is easy to make; just put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and let the machine do the work!


  • 2 pounds (32 ounces) chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1 cup salsa, homemade or purchased
  • 1 cup petite diced canned tomatoes (choose low-sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons Taco Seasoning
  • 1 cup onions, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup celery diced fine
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream, reduced fat

Place the chicken in a slow cooker. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the meat then layer the vegetables and salsa on top.

Pour a half cup water over the mixture, set on low and cook for 6-8 hours. The meat is cooked when it shreds or reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.

When ready to serve, break up the chicken with two forks then stir in the sour cream. Makes 8 one-cup servings of chicken.
