Easiest chicken recipe ever! All you need is some chicken, salsa, taco seasoning and a crock pot. It’s Sunday night, you need to meal prep or you just need to feed your hungry family, you go to your freezer and all you have is chicken. You stop and think what the heck can I make with chicken? I am sick of boiling it, I don’t have time to grill it. What the heck am I going to do? Bust out that crock pot sister I’m about to blow your mind. From here on out make a note that every time you go to the grocery store you grab a packet of taco seasoning, a jar of salsa, and my good friend Uncle Ben’s ready rice. You’ll thank me later I promise.
This recipe can fit any diet, any craving, any budget. My favorite ways to serve it is over tortilla chips, nacho style. You can also serve it over Spanish style Uncle Ben’s. Or roll it up into a taco or burrito. Either way you can make a ton of it for meal prep, or just enough to get you through that Monday dinner slump.
