More About This Recipe
  • Let your slow cooker do the work with this super quick and easy cheesy chicken dinner smothered in salsa. Three ingredients. Crazy cheesy. And salsa. This is a chicken dinner that makes itself – in your slow cooker! I’ve got a mad crush lately on three-ingredient dinners. They sound like such an impossible thing – seems like most cookbooks make meals look like a 12-ingredient list of shenanigans is required even for basic recipes. Alas. This lil' darling takes just three ingredients: Salsa. Chicken. Cheese. We love you. Enjoy!
