Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken

Submitted by: CHELLESHOCKED
Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 cup salsa
    1 package reduced sodium taco seasoning
    1 can reduced fat cream of mushroom soup (condensed)
    1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream

Directions

Add chicken to slow cooker.
Sprinkle taco seasoning over chicken.
Pour salsa and soup over chicken.
Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.
Serve with rice.

NOTES:
You may use half the packet of taco seasoning (I have started doing this to reduce sodium content myself)

Some slow cookers cook faster than others. Mine is a true slow cooker (have had it over 10 years.) The newer ones cook a bit faster and you may have to adjust your cooking time based on that!

I get many emails asking how much a serving is. I don't think I have ever measured it sorry! I just know that five people eat and I usually have one serving left over.

    taco seasoning is super easy to make by yourself which means half the preservatives!
    chili powder, minced garlic, a little flour, onion powder or finely chopped onion and a dash of salt. put it all in a sauce pan with a little water and cook for about 3 minutes on medium, then add to your recipe - 2/9/09

    This was really good! I used cheddar soup instead of cream of mushroom, 1/2 packet of taco seasoning, added a can of black beans, and shredded the chicken. Served over brown rice, this makes for a very satisfying meal! - 2/9/09

    I made this last week and the whole family loved it! That includes a very picky husband, and teenage daughter. I shredded the chicken after I removed it from the crock and served it as a burrito with a low carb whole wheat tortilla filled with the chicken, sauce, brown rice, and fresh veggies! - 4/6/09

    This was so good and packed with flavor! My husband and I are on South Beach, so we put this over black beans instead of rice and it was wonderful. Even my picky 15 year old loved it...he is not on SB and he ate his on top of a baked potato and said it was great that way! Thanks! - 2/6/09

    The first time I made it I used fresh salsa and didn't care for it. This time I used jarred salsa and it was fantastic! I used chicken breast tenders and served over brown rice. Even my picky boyfriend loved it! - 1/31/09

    This has become one of my family's fav foods. Everyone loves it. We have made it with pork too. We vary the intensity by sometimes picking mild, medium or hot salsa. We also sometimes add a few cups of frozen mized vegs. GREAT recipe. - 2/3/09

    My husband also loved this recipe! I used the stovetop method and only 3 chicken breasts. I also made my own taco seasoning: cumin, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, chili powder, and a little One Step Tex-Mex chili seasoning. Definitely a winner! - 1/19/09

    This was a huge hit with my family! It does not need the sour cream either. We served it with a mixture of fiesta corn and black beans.(1/2 c ) rice (1/2 c) and baked Tostitos.(12) We felt as though we had a reastaurant quality mexican dinner without a ton of calories. About 500 total! - 4/6/09

    this was awesome! I added black beans an hour before I served it for some extra fiber. I would also strain the salsa for the next time I make it. I have already shared this recipe with my friends! Thanks! - 1/27/09

    This was a nice, simple recipe. I asked my husband if it was a keeper and he said, "definitely!" I don't know how much taco seasoning I added, I just dusted each breast before pouring on the other ingredients. I also added some shredded colby and monterey cheese. - 1/26/09

    This was wonderful! I took the advice of some of the other comments and used 1/2 packet of the taco seasoning and used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. I cooked in a newer crock pot on high and it was done in 3 hours. The chicken was very tender and juicy. Served over brown rice. Delicious! - 4/6/09

    We really enjoyed this, and will definately make again. I used cream of chicken soup. (Note to self, next time try cheddar cheese soup, only 1/2 the packet of taco seasoning, and re-calculate the calories. The recipe was calculated on 1.5 lbs chicken and 1/2 can of soup).Makes tons of sauce. - 1/21/09
