Mexican Chicken

Whenever I know I am going to be busy but want something yummy for dinner, I always turn to this Mexican Chicken recipe from my friend S.E.  She shared this with me a couple years ago and I cannot tell you how many times I have made it since.  I used it this week for the above Mexican Pizza, but have also used it for tacos, salads, and quesadillas.  I am telling you, it is one of my absolute favorites.  Here is the recipe:

One crockpot
One large jar of salsa
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

And here are the three easy steps:
1. Place the four chicken breasts in the crockpot and pour the salsa over.
2. Cook on high for 4 hours.
3. Pull each chicken breast out, shred and return to the crockpot for 1 hour on low.

Tada!  Mexican Chicken.  Easy, easy!  

To make the above pizza I used the following ingredients:
1. Boboli pizza crust
2. Mexican Chicken
3. Spinach
4. Black beans
5. Mexican blend shredded cheese

The kids love it.  I love it.  Simple clean up.  Oh how I love the crockpot!  Don't you?!


  1. Hi! That pizza looks so great. I have a similar recipe to share:

    White bean chicken chili

    2 - 3 frozen chicken breasts
    4 cans of cannelinni beans
    1 big jar of salsa
    season with chili powder, oregano, red pepper flakes

    cook in the crock pot on low for 8 hours - and shred chicken

    So yummy and easy! A friend adds chicken broth - it is more of a soup this way.. I like the chili consistency.


    1. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I am going to try it next week!

  2. I am cooking this tonight. I'll let you know how it turns out. I think I need to double it for my family. We have lots of people to feed!
