    This was outstanding! This could also be used as the base for chicken nachos which is what I did! I added shredded lettuce, light sour cream, chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, fat free refried beans, and fat free shredded mexican cheese and it was delicious! Thanks for this recipe! - 1/23/11

    Added black beans and corn as well. Used 4 chicken breasts...could use up to 6 w/ 1 jar of salsa. EASY and GREAT!! I had mine over a bed of spinach, kids had w/ cheese on whole wheat tortillas. This base could be converted to a tortilla cheese soup and be fantastic! - 12/14/10

    It was so easy, took me maybe 3 minutes to put together. I added black beans. used frozen chicken and cooked on high. I even gave it the kids by making it quesadilla style and adding sour cream. My company raved about it! definitley making it again! might add red pepper next time. - 2/5/10

    Also added a can of black beans and a can of corn. The only thing that I had on hand was a large package of fryer chicken so I skinned it and used it in the crock-pot as the directions stated. De-boned the chicken while shredding. Meat was so tender that it fell off the bone. We loved this recipe! - 1/28/12

  • This came out really good. I actually put it into the crunchy taco shells on top of the refried beans, and it was delicious and very filling. There's plenty left over, so we'll probably have it for lunch tomorrow with some tortilla chips and guacamole. Outstanding! Thanks for sharing. - 5/8/14

  • I will make a batch of this at the beginning of the week and add onto salads, pitas, side dishes etc. (in addition to the chicken and salsa, I'll variably throw in a bag of frozen veggies, black beans, chopped green chiles etc.) Top with a spoonful of non-fat greek yogurt instead of sour cream. YUM. - 9/23/13

  • Random! I made this recipe yesterday afternoon after having seen it on Pinterest, then saw it on SP today! I like to add corn, bell peppers, onion, and cayenne pepper, then use the chicken to top salad all week for lunch with kale, cucumbers, avocado, and FF cheese (no dressing). - 9/23/13

  • I stirred in 2 tbsp. of low fat sour cream to make sort of a sauce. Also, the directions don't mention it, but it's best if you layer the chicken breasts and taco seasoning, then pour the salsa over the top of everything. You can even use the chicken breasts frozen, for busy mornings. - 9/23/13

  • Almost didn't make this. It didn't sound great, but it was. Mixed taco seasoning & salsa, poured some in bottom of crock pot, put chicken in, & poured rest of salsa mix on top. DH ate it 2 days in a row & wanted more on the 3rd!!!!!! (That never happens, but I had frozen the rest....sorry.) - 8/7/12
