    Cover tightly and cook for an additional 30 minutes with the slow cooker on high, until the cheese is melty and the salsa is bubbling. (Note: Keep the lid tightly sealed to keep the cheese from drying out or overcooking.)

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!
