Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe

I love my slow cooker!  It makes getting dinner so easy.  One of my favorite recipes is Salsa Chicken.  Here is my recipe:



Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken

1 14 ounce(ish) Jar of Salsa

3 to 4 pounds of Chicken pieces (legs, thighs, wings, breast)



1. Place the chicken pieces in your slow cooker.

2. Pour the entire jar of salsa over the chicken.

3. Turn on your slow cooker.  Chicken will be done in 4 to 5 hours on low or 3 hours on high.


To Serve:

Serve the chicken on top of rice (white or brown).  I like to take some of the salsa sauce from the slow cooker and pout it over the chicken and rice.  All you need is a salad to round out the meal!


When cooking in my slow cooker I like to use a slow cooker liner.  They make clean up super fast and easy.  You can find slow cooker liners at


  1. That looks delicious and SIMPLE. I like simple. What kind of salsa did you use?

  2. I use any brand of salsa – usually what ever is on sale. As for the heat, I use medium salsa. If I wasn’t making it for my family and just my husband I would choose the hottest one I could find. He’s Nigerian and likes really spicy food.
