Taco, salsa chicken

Ok guys!! Another super simple chicken recipe with multiple ways to enjoy it! Either as a main dish with some yummy veggie sides, over a salad with some added cheese and sour cream, or on a low carb wrap! Extremely convenient to set and forget in the crock pot overnight, while at work, or bake in the oven for a quick dinner!


Salsa- 1 jar (regular not large size)

1 packet of low sodium taco seasoning

4-6 chicken breasts


Pre-heat oven to 350 or set out crock pot

place thawed chicken breasts in 13x 9 pan  (or place in crock pot)

pour salsa and 1 packet of taco seasoning over chicken

** may sprinkle cheese on top if desired

Bake for 35-45 minutes (depending on thickness and # of chicken breasts) OR

Cook on LOW for 6-7 hrs in crockpot overnight OR

Cook on HIGH for 4 hrs in crockpot

Serve as main dish with a salad and veggie OR

overtop of a bed of lettuce add sour cream, cheese, guacamole, etc for a “taco salad” OR

on a low carb wrap for taco night! :)

**Lots of ways to enjoy this incredibly simple chicken recipe. It is extremely moist and you can add a little more “kick” with a hotter taco seasoning, more of it, or some hot sauce!

We actually had this twice this week!!! I like to add a little extra salsa for additional moisture and flavor and prefer mine a top a salad. My husband prefers his as a main dish and can serve with steamed broccoli or green beans and some cauliflower mashed potatoes (recipe coming soon!!)



Bacon Apple Crock-Pot Chicken


Bacon Apple Crock-Pot Chicken
Serves: 4

  1. Wrap each piece of chicken in 2 pieces of bacon and place in bottom of crock pot.
  2. Mix grated apple and barbecue sauce and pour over chicken.
  3. Cook on low for 7-8 hours until done.
This was so easy and so good! I used Annie's natural BBQ sauce that I got at Kroger. Look for one with no high fructose corn syrup. You can use spoon to shred the chicken when it's finished and put over a bed of lettuce or in a low carb wrap! How do you cook chicken in the crock-pot? Share below!
