Slow cooker meals are quite possibly my favorite type of dinner. Throw everything in and forget about it until dinner time rolls around. Before I went on my maternity leave, I absolutely loved coming home from work after a long day and having a warm, delicious meal waiting for me. This slow cooker salsa chicken is hearty, filling and low calorie.
To make this recipe, you will require a slow cooker. It really is an indispensable tool to have in your kitchen. Optionally, I would also recommend slow cooker liners. They make the cleaning aspect of the slow cooker so simple, it’s silly. No more soaking or scrubbing the sides of the pot!
This slow cooker salsa chicken is one of the first slow cooker meals I ever tried when my husband and I first moved in together in 2010. At the time, I had only ever ate foods that were very plain and easy (hello, boxed breaded fish that I could cook in the oven). I was hesitant to try this recipe. Once it came out and I tasted it.. well, it’s still a favorite of mine 8 years later. In fact, I made it so many times that my husband only allows us to have it on a monthly basis now.
Cheesy chicken dinners always have a soft spot in my heart. If I can have a lower calorie meal that satisfies my cheese craving, I am all for it.
