Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken

Tonight is the first dinner of Trader Joe’s week and it’s a super easy one – 2 minutes of prep, 3 ingredients and no hands on cooking time. The slow cooker does all the work!

I love making salsa chicken because the idea of it is so transferable – want it spicy? Use a spicy sauce instead of tomatillo and mango. Want a creamier sauce? Or a tomato based sauce? Yep, you can do that too. I decided to keep the salsa it cooks in mild and serve it with a spicy side of corn salsa. But you can serve this with any kind of side – pasta, rice, veggies, shredded in a taco, on top of a pizza…. the possibilities with this chicken are truly endless!
