I have made this recipe several times, and it's a favorite in our house. I add some spices to the top of chicken before topping with salsa. I add garlic salt, rosemary, cayenne and chili powder. ( I didn't always do it, and it was great before too, but just a little extra kick). Anyways, I love it!!!
So easy to make, my husband & kids loved it. I made Spanish rice on the side to go with it & used flour tortillas to wrap it all up in. This one is a favorite and have made it a few times. So easy to throw in the crock pot in the morning & have dinner ready after work.
My family and I LOVE this recipe. The other night, I didn't have time to thaw the chicken in time to get it into the crock pot for 6 hours. I put the ingredients into my electric skillet, and it worked wonderfully: very tender and flavorful either way I've prepared it!
I love this recipe! Use a good salsa. I use a little bit more salsa on top of chicken. I put frozen corn with beans. It comes out wonderful!
Super easy, really tasty. Definitely a keeper. It took only 3 hours to cook. Great with a little sour cream and some crunched up tortilla chips on top. Delicious!
