How To Make Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken with Black Beans and Corn

How To Serve Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken:

  • Yesterday I served it over 1/2 cup cooked brown rice with 1 ounce avocado and it was perfection
  • If you want to lower your carbs, try this over cauliflower rice.
  • To turn these into tacos, you transfer the chicken, corn and black beans with a slotted spoon into a serving platter (there will be liquid in the bottom of the slow cooker, you’ll want to discard that) then shred the chicken with two forks and mix it all together. Serve the cheese on the side with tortillas.

And since so many are asking, although I have and love my Instant Pot, I still love my slow cooker! I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!

  1. Made this last night, following directions exactly and it was good but the chicken was super overcooked. I used a thermometer to check the chicken temp when it was done and it was around 190 – way too high. Next time, I won’t cut the chicken horizontally in half like it calls for and will just leave them whole. I will also check the chicken temp at around 4.5 hours and go from there. Once the cook time gets sorted this will go into regular rotation – super easy and tasty.

  2. This is so easy to prep and versatile to serve w rice, chips, etc. delicious- make it at least weekly. Leftovers if any warm up great too. 

  3. I finally made this last night. My husband, three sons and I LOVED it. I’ll have to double it next time! I didn’t have Adobo so I used Sazón Goya instead. It was still delicious! I also used someone’s advice on the Instant Pot and it totally worked. 15 minutes on high pressure, 5 minutes natural release and then quick release.
