I have been making this chicken for years now. I usually shredded a Costco rotisserie chicken and add a small can of Hernandez salsa. It is so good! The next day it is even better.
Easy, yes indeed. Had leftover thighs and legs from a rotisserie chicken and was looking for a recipe to use them up! I used a medium salsa and still thought it was a bit bland when cooked, so I would add a tsp of taco seasoning next time. Thanks for posting this recipe! UPDATE: We had some leftovers so I used it for taco salads, serving the meat atop a bed of lettuce, corn, and black olives, topped with a little more salsa and sour cream. The taco meat worked well for this purpose!
What an awesome idea to use up leftovers. I often have leftover chicken meat and almost always an open jar of salsa that needs to be used up. Thank you so much for sharing this tasty recipe with us. Thank you.
Had these last night. I did it a little different. I put 4 large chicken breasts and 1 jar of salsa in the crock-pot and let it cook all day while at work. I did not add water. I shredded the chicken w/2 forks that night and we had chicken taco's. Really easy. Added shredded cheese, lettuce, sour cream and hot peppers on soft wrap. Turned out great.
Have tried this and it turned out well.
