Salsa Chicken {Revamped}

Slow Cooker RecipesWhitney Carlson10 Comments

Our Salsa Chicken recipe is one of our most popular recipes and one that we make on a weekly basis.  We were starting to get pretty tired of it even after dressing it up with black beans, brown rice, or using it in a salad.  We decided we would start making it like we do the Buffalo Chicken with the chicken broth.  It gives it a nice, fresh new flavor!


  • 3-4 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 large diced tomatoes
  • 1.5 cups (roughly) of your favorite salsa
  • Organic chicken broth (enough to cover chicken)
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (if you want to make it spicy)


1. Add all ingredients to your crock pot except chicken broth and salsa.  Pour in chicken broth until chicken is covered.  Add half of the salsa to the crock pot.

2. Cook on low heat for at least 7 hours.

3. Once cooked, shred chicken with a fork.  Pour all broth out.

4. Return chicken crock pot and add remaining salsa.

5. Cook on high heat for an additional 30 minutes.

He & She Tip: Add sliced onion, bell peppers, cilantro, lime, or your favorite pepper to enhance the flavor.
