Tasty Tuesday (on a Thursday): Crockpot Salsa Chicken

(Photo and recipe from Chef Mommy blog)

I came across this super easy recipe from the Chef Mommy blog on Pinterest. What makes it easy? It uses the crock pot! Nothing better than a fix it and forget it meal, right?

Definitely take the suggestion of adding beans, scallions and cheese. It brings this dish up a notch. We don't care for cilantro (gasp!) so I left that out. Make a side of (brown) rice and you've got a great meal (well, you'll need a veggie too). :)


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts 
1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup (I used cream of mushroom)
1 cup salsa 
1 package taco seasoning (I used 1 Tbsp of my homemade taco seasoning)
1 cup sour cream 
cilantro, for serving (optional)

(I also added a little shredded cheddar-jack, black beans and scallion on top)


Put chicken, soup, and salsa in slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over everything. Cook on low for 6 hours. If shredding the chicken, pull the breasts out and shred; return back to slow cooker. Stir in sour cream and heat just until everything is combined.

Pin It!

  9. That does sound good! I love my Crock Pots...I have 5 of them. :)

  10. Starting to cook this now,just not sure when to add the cheese and scallions. I put in the beans with everything else and just turned it on.... Thinking that maybe the last two go in once you add the sour cream.

  11. Thank you for the recipe! I can't wait to try it AND the homemade taco seasoning.
