crockpot salsa chicken. for cinco de mayo.

Everyday is a good day to eat Mexican–especially today. Here’s an easy, healthy recipe for your Cinco de Mayo family dinner–or just any family dinner. ¡buen provecho!

Crockpot Salsa Chicken


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

Place all the ingredients in your crockpot, cover and crank it up–8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.


Once the chicken is cooked, shred it with two forks.


You can dress this salsa chicken up with lettuce, tomato, onion, cilantro, lime–whatever you like. I eat mine on a bed of lettuce and Danny and the kids eat theirs wrapped in warm corn tortillas. It’s good both ways. Oh and last night my girlfriend Theresa suggested throwing a little cream cheese into the crockpot too–um, ya–that would be creamy and amazing.

Here are a few more favorites–perfect for today.

And margaritas with a big splash of prossecco are the only way to go with of these recipes. So have one (or two) of those too. Boom. Enjoy.
