Salsa Chicken


Happy Saturday everyone! I’m currently camped out in the library doing everything I can to avoid having to work on my internship projects.  I essentially have to write a research paper today.  I can pump one of those babies out pretty effectively by now….but I don’t want to!

Anyways, Meghan gave me the idea for this recipe last week and I’m so glad I gave it a try.  Super easy and super versatile, the perfect combination!

Basically, once you make this chicken you can put it in everything.

I made quesadillas, added it to my stuffed sweet potato recipe, and ate it mixed with black beans and spinach.  This chicken can go anywhere shredded chicken can go.

Salsa Chicken


  • 2-3 lbs chicken breast
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa (I used Herdez)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper


  1. Add all the ingredients to a crock pot.
  2. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
  3. Shred chicken and cook for an additional hour
  4. Add chicken to anything and everything!



My favorite thing that I have used this chicken for is quesadillas!  I’ve been putting cheese, spinach, and the chicken inside them and they are bomb!

Now I suggest you go make a crock pot of chicken…
