Crockpot Salsa Chicken is the easiest recipe ever and literally can’t be ruined. All you need is salsa and chicken, that’s it. This easy Mexican shredded chicken is the perfect weeknight meal!
What Salsa to Use in Crockpot Salsa Chicken
You can use any salsa you like to make it as mild or hot as you prefer. Sometimes I use a salsa with black bean and corn it to make it have even more depth without even doing anything.
You can even use a green salsa and make it salsa verde chicken.

Need a Slow Cooker? My favorite is this Crock Pot 7 quart Programmable Slow Cooker. First and foremost, I love being able to set the timer in case I’m not home when the food is finished cooking and it just switches to warm. Plus you can lock the lid and just carry it to a party. Not only is it easy to carry but also you will never lose another Tupperware or serving dish again at a potluck party!
