I have another recipe to share today – nothing too fancy. That’s my style in the kitchen. Simple, healthy, short ingredient list.
I’ve seen this dish on a lot of blogs but it comes via a slow cooker. I’ve cooked this long without one but still do want to give it a try. My mom offered I can test-drive her slow cooker!
In the spirit of the Eat in Month Challenge, this salsa chicken was my go-to lunch last week. This is very versatile and could be used for tacos, burriots, enchiladas, taco salads, etc. I’ve been enjoying it on a bed of sautéed kale. I finally bought a bag of baby kale at Costco – it’s very bitter but cooked down it’s a nice addition to a warm dish.
3-4 chicken breasts
1, 16 oz jar salsa
1. Boil the chicken, let it cool, shred.
2. Place the chicken in a pan on the stove and heat until warm. Sprinkle with cumin until chicken is coated.
3. Add salsa and mix until chicken is coated.
4. Heat through.
5. Enjoy! Store in an air-tight container.
I used Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa for this – it’s a bit sweet but adds unique flavor. It’s low in sodium but does have added sugar – bummer. Next time I’ll try this with green salsa. If you’ve never boiled/poached chicken, here are tips.
Any new or go-to chicken recipes to share? Are you participating in the Eat in Month challenge? Did you pack your lunch today? What’s for lunch?
I forgot to take a picture of the dish – by the time I remembered, I’d finished all of the chicken. So instead of a chicken picture, here’s a puppy picture!
Love the pup picture & the recipe sounds perfectly delcious & easy! Thanks.
I’m a huge fan of recipes that are healthy (obviously! ;)) and have a short ingredient list. I made a batch of quinoa yesterday to have for lunches this week. 🙂
Great pic of your pooch! I don’t eat meat but this could be one I try out for my boyfriend!
That picture was in the midst of cleaning. Kostas followed me around and made sure to shed and drool on everything I’d just cleaned!
Yum! I love a good pineapple salsa — sounds great in this recipe.
I do the same thing, but in the crockpot! So easy and so delish!
salsa on anything is amazing, love this idea!
Did the pup get to munch on the yummy food? Looks like a happy & satisfied smile on his face 🙂
This is a great recipe. I make it in the crockpot and add corn and/or black beans as well as some taco seasoning. Then I shred and serve over brown rice. Yummy yummy!
I love this kind of recipe! I’m going to give it a try!
Also, your dog is a-dorable!! 🙂 Glad to have found your blog!
