  • 1 pound (450g) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Cups (16oz) salsa
  • 1 tablespoon fajita or taco seasoning optional


  • Place chicken breast in a crockpot.
  • Top with fajita seasoning or taco seasoning if using, followed by the salsa.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.
  • Take chicken out and shred. Reduce salsa if you wish.
  • Return chicken to crockpot and stir everything together.


  • Cook chicken for a shorter amount of time if you would rather have sliced chicken instead of shredded chicken.
  • If you want a thicker Chicken Salsa meal, you can take out some of the salsa liquid when you’re shredding the chicken.
  • I prefer to use smooth, blended salsa for this recipe. 
  • Use some tongs for lifting out the meat from the Crockpot, or just carefully use your hands.
  • When reheating your Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken, you may want to add some extra salsa to help prevent the chicken from drying out. 
  • In order to stick to Keto, Paleo, and Whole30 dietary guidelines, make sure to check the ingredients in your taco seasoning, fajita seasoning, and store-bought salsa.
  • Remember that Slow Cookers and Crockpots can cook at different temperatures, check your make and model, and manual for recommended cooking times.
  • There are 0 Blue Plan SmartPoints in one serving.
