Salsa Chicken – Crock Pot

This is a very low calorie meal and so easy. You can add these to tortillas and bake with a bit of cheese, top rice, eat on crackers, just eat with a fork, eat in lettuce wraps, or like we did tonight in pita shells.

Calorie count: 150 for 1 hot dog (based on the food brands I used) Read your labels for accurate calorie counts. Follow package serving size for accurate counting of calories. I measure everything per plate/bowl based on serving sizes listed on all packages/containers to determine calories.

What you need:
1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast per person (frozen)
1-2 Jars of your favorite Salsa
If you like spice add either Hot Pepper Flakes, Red Hot Sauce, or Cayenne Pepper
How to:
Pour about 1/2 jar of salsa into crock pot on high
Lay frozen chicken breast over salsa.
Pour remaining salsa over chicken. If you want more salsa add more 🙂
Cook on high for 5-6 hours or until chicken is fork tender and cooked thoroughly.
Remove chicken from crockpot and shred with two forks.
Return Chicken to crock pot on low
Mix chicken into salsa and cook on low for 1 hour.
We filled a pita and added a bit to the top of the pita and ate with a fork!
So yummy!
