crock pot salsa chicken

start this before the day begins and you'll have a wonderful pot of delicious chicken that is perfect for taco salad, burritos, enchilada's (use your imagination!).


salsa chicken
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (trimmed of fat)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
16 oz jar chunky salsa
1 packet low sodium taco seasoning (i use mccormick brand from costco which is free of msg)

1. put chopped pepper and onion in bottom of crockpot


2. put chicken on top of pepper and onions


3. mix taco seasoning with salsa and pour over chicken. 
4. cook on low heat for 8 hours.  after 8 hours, take chicken out of pot and shred the chicken.  spoon salsa mixture over shredded chicken (not too much, just enough for the chicken to absorb the liquid so it will stay moist).  dump the rest of the salsa mixture and put the chicken back in the pot to keep warm.

serve as you wish! i prefer taco salad, the husband likes tacos/burrito's.

yum.

Ohhhh, Yum! definately will be making this week! gracias! ;-)
Does the costco brand have yellow or red dyes in there seasoning? those cause several health prob like ADHD, migraines etc. if you already have cumin & chili pwdr that would do the trick plus save some $$.

i'm glad i've posted one you'll try!

the mccormick seasoning doesn't have dyes and it's lower in sodium than the packet versions. i've never thought to just use cumin & chili powder. i'll have to try that.
