Yesterday I was busy cleaning the house and working on websites, so I was looking for something easy to make for dinner. I remembered a friend’s recipe for Salsa Chicken and decided to give it a try with my own twist. I served it over brown rice and it was wonderful. I generally only cook for two, but I love recipes that make left-overs. This one made lots!
Recipe for Darlene’s Salsa Chicken:
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 small jar of salsa
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Garlic powder to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients in the crock pot and cook on the high setting, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 hours until the chicken is tender and easily pulls apart.
1. Pull the chicken apart into large chunks and serve with the broth and veggies over rice with a dollop of sour cream and/or some shredded cheese.
2. Shred the chicken, strain out the liquid with cheese cloth, and serve in wraps with cheese and sour cream.
