Susan's Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
An easy and delicious sure thing original recipe to please all.
A shredded chicken smothered in a creamy salsa sauce served over rice."I was worried that using fat free cream cheese would make it bland but the salsa had so much flavor that it was PERFECTLY balanced! I only made a pound of chicken with a 16oz. jar of salsa and 6oz. of fat free cream cheese since there is no way I could consume 4 pound of chicken! Two servings of it are currently in my freezer... I will be interested to see how it tastes after being defrosted! Great flavor + inexpensive due to few ingredients + healthy = THANK YOU for this TERRIFIC recipe! " - Nmagnuson

Susan's Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Preparation
Place frozen chicken in a medium to large crock pot.
Pour the salsa over the chicken.
Put the lid on the crock pot and set the crock pot to low for 4-5 hours based on your crock pot.
You want the chicken to be cooked through and very tender so at the end of cooking time it easily pulls apart with 2 forks.
I do this right in the crock pot when I use chicken tenders, Breasts can be taken out and shredded on a plate and then returned to the crock pot. (Shredding the chicken ensures the great flavor in every bite!)
Last- I then melt the cream cheese into the chicken and salsa mixture.
Serve over rice with a side of fresh Red pepper slices.
We have found that even though we love a variety of salsa brands Tostitos works by far the best for this recipe!
I am a wimp when it come to medium and hot salsa. My family is not but they still LOVE this dish! You of corse can try mild or hot Tostitos salsa.
I make this meal for friends when they have a baby, or after surgery etc, since it is a sure thing their families all love and 1/2 can feed my family and the other 1/2 theirs! Or we love the left overs!
This is my original recipe =D
