3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Mango Salsa Chicken Recipe

After a weekend of eating out, I was looking forward to a good, home-cooked meal last Sunday night, but my plans with family and friends left little time for grocery shopping or cooking.

Slow Cooker Mango Salsa Chicken Recipe
When I checked the fridge for dinner possibilities, I saw a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and a large jar of mango salsa my Mom had given me after she went overboard at Costco. I wondered if I could use them together in a slow cooker recipe, but a quick Google search didn’t turn up anything. I figured there wasn’t too much that could go wrong, and decided to make up my own crockpot mango salsa chicken recipe.

I diced the chicken breasts into chunks and put them in my crockpot, covered them with about 1.5 cups of the salsa, and stirred in a can of tomato sauce. I set the crockpot on low and headed out with my friends.

When I got back a few hours later, it smelled delicious and was almost ready.

At my husband’s request, I made some sticky white rice
and served it like this for dinner:

How often do you make up a recipe?

Do you tend to go overboard at Costco?

  10. How funny. Dad grilled chicken and my mom poured peach salsa over it on Tuesday when I visited. Seems pretty similar. It was yummy. Good idea to make it a crock pot recipe.
