I put together an easy slow-cooker chicken meal just using odd items on hand, and it really turned out great! Delicious, really. It started while staring at a just-defrosted bulk-pack chicken breast and half a jar of salsa. What to do? Here’s what:
No pictures today. This was too simple and too good.
Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe
Get, prepare, and dump these into your slow-cooker:
- (4 pieces) Chicken Breast, Thin Sliced
PREP: Trim any fat or other undesirable stuff.
- (1 medium can) Tomato Sauce
- (1/2 jar) Salsa, Medium Strength
- (3 small) Onions, Yellow
PREP: Peel, trim ends, cut into lengthwise quarters.
- (1) Green Pepper, Long-Style
PREP: Core, cut lengthwise once, cut slices. Lots of half-circles.
- (15) Black Olives, Small
PREP: Cut each in half once, width-wise. Nice and big that way.
No salt, pepper or spices. Regular tomato sauce has enough salt, and the salsa, of course, has lots of everything.
Cook on low 4 1/2 hours. Really succulent that way. So, there’s your easy slow-cooker chicken dinner!
Make four cups of white rice to pour the final result over. Easy with a rice steamer, brutally hard without (an automatic rice maker is one appliance I’ll waste valuable counter space with!). This is the one we splurged on. It was worth every penny.
