Easy Slow Cooker Chicken with Salsa Recipe

I put together an easy slow cooker chicken meal using odd items on hand, and it turned out great! Delicious. It started while staring at a just-defrosted bulk-pack chicken breast and half a jar of salsa.

What to do? Here’s what:

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe

Ingredients and Preparation

Get, prepare, and place these ingredients into your slow cooker:

  1. Chicken Breast, Thin Sliced, 4 pieces
    Preparation: Trim any fat or other undesirable stuff.
  2. Tomato Sauce, 1 medium can
  3. Salsa, Medium Strength, 1/2 jar
  4. Onions, Yellow, 3 small
    Preparation: Peel, trim ends, cut into lengthwise quarters.
  5. Green Pepper, Long-Style, 1 large
    Preparation: Core, cut lengthwise once, cut slices. Lots of half-circles.
  6. Black Olives, 15 small
    Preparation: Cut each in half once, width-wise. Nice and big that way.

Cooking and Notes

Cook on “Low” for 4 1/2 hours. It’s more succulent that way.

Note: No salt, pepper, or spices are added. Regular tomato sauce has enough salt, and the salsa has everything else.

Optional Rice

Make four cups of white rice to pour the final result over. Easy to prepare with a rice steamer, difficult without. So, there’s your easy slow-cooker chicken dinner!

Rice Cooker Suggestion

An automatic rice maker is the one appliance I’ll take up valuable counter space with! This is similar to the original Aroma Housewares model ARC-1000 we purchased. It was worth every penny.
