Embarrassingly Easy Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

So I had some extra dressing and tried to find a good recipe for it. I found this gem and made it. Gina once again for the same.

I love the Bolthouse farms, and the Salsa Verde Avocado is great with this!

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 lbs lean skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chunks salsa
  • adobo seasoning (or salt) to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • salt, to taste

Directions:

  1. Season the chicken with adobo (or salt), then place in the crock pot and top with salsa, garlic powder and 1/2 tsp cumin.
  2. Cover and cook LOW for 4 hours. When cooked, remove the chicken and set on a large plate; shred with two forks. Pour the liquid into a bowl and reserve, then place the shredded chicken back into the crock pot, adjust salt to taste and add remaining 1/4 tsp cumin.
  3. Pour 3/4 cup of the reserved liquid back into the crock pot and cover until ready to serve.
