Looking for slow cooker recipes that highlight all that is awesome about spring and summer? Enter this Mango Salsa Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe that uses plenty of fresh fruit and veggies. This past week, I was trying to come up with some scrumptious ideas for this time of the year. This was definitely one of the winning ideas!
For a fresh kick of awesome, I used ingredients that would be used to make mango salsa. With mango, red onion, cilantro and cherry tomatoes, this easy recipe is packed with flavorful and colorful produce. A sprinkling of taco seasoning brings all the flavors together for a nice pop. This is wonderful served over some plain rice, it’s packed with enough flavor to hold it’s own!
Isn’t cilantro the best? I only came to love it a few years ago and just can’t get enough! I was excited to be able to add some to this dish for an added bit of salsa flavor.
To make this meal gluten free, make sure to use a gluten free taco seasoning.
Hope you enjoy!
