IMG 4613 150x150 Salsa ChickenThis recipe is a staple at my house. It is by far the easiest recipe to make.
A chicken recipe with only two ingredients. If you have some chicken in the freezer and a jar of salsa in the pantry you are good to go. Let it cook in a slow cooker while you are at work and your house will smell delicious when you return.
Make this on a Sunday and you can use it for quick weekday recipes like tacos or burritos.
If you try an recipe on this site you must try this one. In fact I once had a contractor at my house while this was in the oven and he enjoyed the smell so much he asked for a taste once it was ready.

Salsa Chicken
 
This is the easiest chicken to make and can be served in so many ways.
Ingredients
  • 3 lbs of boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 16 oz Jar of Salsa (use mild, medium or hot depending on your taste)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees or if you are using a Slow Cooker place on high.
  2. Place the chicken thighs in a Dutch Oven/ Slow Cooker. I use my Le Creuset 5½ quart round french oven.
  3. Pour the jar of salsa over the chicken. Toss lightly until the chicken is coated evenly by the salsa. Cook for 3 hours. If using a dutch oven place it on the center rack of the oven.
Notes
This chicken can be served in so many ways. Try it over rice or noodles. You can serve it with crispy or soft tacos. Garnish it with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, onion, peppers and avocado. Don’t forget some shredded cheese, sour cream and more salsa. Ohhh sounds so good.
