Raise your hand if you like easy meals? If you could see me right now, both of my hands would be in the air. Its to the point in the winter where we are all ready for it to pack its cold bags, and get out. The holidays are over and it seems like there is nothing to look forward to. Well, I have just the thing to brighten your day. A slow cooker recipe. Lets be honest, the only thing to come out of this cold season is the excuse to use our slow cooker whenever we want. Is it just me or do these type of meals just warm your belly and heart this time of year? In my previous post I confessed my love for our All-Clad Slow Cooker and how much use it gets. The recipe I’m going to share with you today is a favorite in the Posey house, so much so that we made it twice this week. Delicious and easy, what more could you ask for?
First, start by preparing your chicken breasts. Rub them down with olive oil and spices. My favorites to use are sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Penzeys Spice Taco Seasoning. For an extra kick, sprinkle with red pepper.
In your slow cooker, pour 1 cup of salsa as a base layer.
Place seasoned chicken breasts on-top of the salsa.
Top off with Salsa so that you can no longer see the chicken. I used about two cups. For some heat, sprinkle a dash of red pepper.
Cook on high for 3 hours, or until done.
Once chicken is done, transfer into a bowl. Using a fork, shred the chicken.
Place back in the slow cooker and stir in with the salsa. Let sit for about 15 minutes.
We keep it simple in our house with toppings for this meal. Our favorites are black olives, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and Cholula Hot Sauce. If you are a topping fanatic, knock yourself out. There are no limits here!
