How many nights do you want to make a delicious and healthy dinner, but you just don’t have the energy? You know the scripture in Matthew, “…the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”? I find myself in that position way more than I would like! That usually leads to eating out or a frozen pizza and that really doesn’t help our fitness or money-saving goals. So I started experimenting with fast, but healthy recipes that would also make for great next day lunches! This two-ingredient crockpot chicken recipe quickly became a staple on our weekly dinner menu! It is the perfect protein for so many dishes and is just so tasty! I think you will be shocked to learn just how easy it is!
Crockpot Chicken Ingredients
- 4 Raw and Rinsed Chicken Breasts
- 1 16 oz. Jar of Pace Chunky Style Medium Salsa
Place all 4 pieces of chicken in your crockpot and cover with the salsa. Place the lid on the crockpot and select the setting for 4 hours. Go have a glass of wine, read by the pool, or head to the office while the amazing invention that we call the crockpot works its magic! After four hours, take the lid off and watch with amazement as you are able to shred the chicken with a fork!
Two hours in. Looking and smelling so yummy!
Tada! You are done! How easy was that? This chicken is cooked to perfection and is so delicious! You can serve this in a salad, on nachos, or with a side of veggies for a low carb option! This week, I already had the ingredients for tacos, so we decided to have some shredded chicken tacos. Jeremy (my hunky husband) really likes when I serve this Chipotle style with beans, rice, and guacamole on a salad! However you decide to eat it, I can assure you that you will absolutely love it! Enjoy!
