  • 2lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • Additional toppings like fresh tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce, etc.

  2. Place chicken breasts in slow cooker.
  3. Toss onions and peppers on top of chicken breasts.
  4. Pour jar of salsa on top of onions and peppers.

There are so many ways to serve this chicken! You can use it as a taco filling and just add in your desired toppings. I like to serve it over rice and black beans for a yummy taco bowl. Add it to a salad. You choose...I typically like to double up the recipe and have leftovers in the fridge as it reheats really well.
