I’m smitten with the chicken meat that our neighbor made us a couple of times now for dinner. I know she makes it in a crock pot but I have yet to remember to ask for the recipe when I see her! When I found this recipe on Pinterest I thought that it sounded pretty yummy AND maybe it would be close to Annie’s. While it was scrumptious…it still plays second fiddle. I substituted normal salsa for some mango/cilantro salsa that I found at the store. I loved the added kick that the fruit gave it.
In a slow cooker, mix together:
One 24-ounce jar medium or mild salsa
Juice from one lime
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
One 1.25-oz. package taco seasoning
2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)
Add 4-6 boneless chicken breast halves (completely defrosted) to the slow cooker and coat with the salsa mixture. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.
