*This is combo crockpot & oven recipe

Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 jars salsa – any kind – divided 
  • 1 C mexican blend cheese – shredded

Directions:

  1. Place a slow cooker liner bag in your crockpot
  2. Place whole chicken breasts in your crockpot
  3. Pour the 1 jar of salsa over chicken
  4. Cook for 1- 1/2 to 2 hours on high – you don’t want to cook it longer because it will start falling apart
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  6. Spray an 8″ square baking dish with non-stick spray
  7. Carefully remove the chicken from the crockpot (leaving the liquid)
  8. Place the chicken in the baking dish
  9. Pour remaining jar of salsa over the chicken
  10. Sprinkle evenly with cheese
  11. Bake for 15 minutes or until it’s nice and golden brown –  the sauce and cheese should be bubbling

Notes:

  1. For easy clean up, I always use a slow cooker liner bag – make sure if you use a slow cooker liner bag, that you buy the specific liner bag that is made for Slow Cookers, DO NOT use anything else or it will melt and ruin your food!
