Crockpot Italian Salsa Chicken

Crockpot Italian Salsa Chicken

HAPPY  NEW YEAR!!

With my first post of 2020, it is only appropriate that I make it of my favorite thing, food.

While I was in the process of ending off my quarter at work, finishing up grad school and right before the holidays – I had almost no food in my house and didn’t have time to meal prep what so ever like I usually like to. So I looked in my cabinet, fridge and freezer and found 4 things – Frozen Chicken Breast, a can of diced tomatoes, half of a sweet onion, and a handful of different Italian Seasonings. So, I threw it all in the crockpot and preyed for the best. It was delicious!

This dish is so easy to make, you just throw it in the crockpot and let it sit for 6 hours. I’m sure if you had an Instapot you could make it even quicker. ALSO you cold change up the seasoning to make different styles. Next time, I want to add Trader Joes Sweet Chili Lime seasoning for a Mexican style.

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 6 Hours on Low in a Crock Pot

Ingredients

  • 2 Large Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 14.5 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes (I get No Salt Added)
  • 1/2 small diced sweet onion
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic
  • My own home made spice mixture (I free hand my spices depending on the dish)
    • Himalayan Salt
    • Ground Black Pepper
    • Basil
    • Paprika
    • Onion powder
    • Garlic Powder
    • Chili pepper if you want some spice

Just combine everything in a Med/Large Crockpot on Low. Stir every few hours. I put my chicken in frozen – if you do it fresh it may take less time. Once you can easily pull the chicken apart with a fork it is done! This would be so good with pasta, but I just ate the chicken and tomatoes.

My Crockpot: I am obsessed with this crockpot. I had a larger 7 quart crock-pot but it was old and the handles broke so I invested in this 4.5 quart one and a small sauce crock pot.

If you try this recipe, let me know how it is in the comments below!
