I seriously died and went to heaven after the first bite of this chicken. It was so good, I am actually making it again for dinner tonight! The chicken comes out so tender and flavorful, and this slow cooker recipe just couldn’t be easier! Easy prep in under 5 minutes.

I’m also pumped that Weight Watcher’s new Freestyle Plan included beans, chicken and corn in their list of Zero Smart Point foods, which means so many of my recipes are now lower in points!

A few ways to serve this Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken recipe:

  • Yesterday I served it over 1/2 cup cooked brown rice with 1 ounce avocado and it was perfection (8 smart points total)!
  • 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.
