  • 2 cups salsa (use your favorite)


  • Juice of half a lime (optional, but highly recommended)


  1. Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then pour the salsa over the chicken breasts.

  • If you want to make this a little bit of a sweet & spicy chicken, you can stir some brown sugar in after you’ve shredded the chicken.
