An easy, tasty, and budget-friendly recipe for a versatile chicken dish
What could be better than a recipe that takes 10 minutes to put together and has only two ingredients?
Throw everything into your slow cooker and bam! you have dinner a few hours later.
One more great thing about this recipe is its versatility. I make a batch of this and keep it in the fridge for the week. You can serve it over a bed of lettuce, over brown rice, in a tortilla shell, or eat it straight from the bowl.
Whoa, I totally forgot to tell you how budget-friendly this recipe is!
Chicken thighs are the way to get this recipe to be budget-friendly. They are usually significantly less expensive than chicken breasts or tenderloins. Plus, they are incredibly flavorful.
When I use chicken thighs, I like to cut off most of the visible fat before cooking.
This can get time-consuming if you try to cut every single piece of fat off. To save time and sanity, I just make sure that there are no huge pieces of fat before I throw them in the slow cooker. You are welcome to use whatever part of the chicken you prefer.
Then I grab a bottle of salsa that is on sale and throw it all together in the slow cooker. And 4 hours later, you have deliciousness.
