3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Recipe

3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Recipe

Looking for something easy for dinner? How about slow cooker chicken that only has 3 ingredients? Right up my ally!

Now, I've been making this recipe for about a year. I started out with about 5 or 6 ingredients.

As time went on after some intentional and accidental trials, I realized that the same taste could be accomplished with just 2 ingredients added to the chicken.

My hubby and son love this recipe and it makes my day go ever so smoothly.

Set in the slow cooker in the morning and it's ready when it's time for dinner.

Call it salsa chicken or fiesta chicken, it'd delicious either way! Let's dig in!

What are the other 2 ingredients? (Since you obviously already know one of them is chicken!)

It's a jar of your choice of salsa and a can of Campbell's Condensed Cheddar Soup.

Easy peasy and it makes a really nice blended "fiesta" chicken.

You can also choose the level of kick by option for mild, medium or hot salsa.

The choice is yours.

This is one of the most simple chicken recipes that I use (save for throwing frozen nuggets into the microwave), hope you'll like it too!

I have this in the slow cooker now. Has anyone tried adding some frozen corn or black beans? I'm on the fence...

Hi, I live in Mexico so I can't get Cheddar Cheese Soup, but, I do have a can of Cream of cheese soup or a can of cheese sauce. Which of these do you think would be better to sub for the cheddar cheese soup? The cream of cheese is liquidy and the cheese sauce is not. TIA

Hi there. I would think cream of cheese soup would be the best option for a similar outcome. But to be honest, the cheese sauce wold probably be delicious as well! Please let us know what you decide and let us know how it turned out!

Do I need to cut the chicken into pieces or put whole breasts in the crockpot?
