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!
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.
