Super easy crockpot salsa chicken is made with a jar of LA VICTORIA® salsa and some spices. Perfect for meal prep or for a party, this chicken is flavorful and easy to make! Delicious on top of tacos, salads or bowls or inside a wrap!



  • 1.5lbs Chicken Breast
  • 16 oz Jar LA VICTORIA® Salsa Thick'n Chunky Medium 
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper


  1. Turn your slow cooker on to the low setting. Add the chicken breasts and sprinkle with all spices. Pour the entire jar of salsa on top then place the lid on. Cook for 2-3 hours, or until you reach an internal temperature of 165F/74C. 
  2. When chicken is fully cooked use two forks to pull the chicken apart. Mix the sauce into the pulled chicken, serve immediately or turn to the keep warm setting. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4days.
