Salsa Chicken in the Slow Cooker

Salsa Chicken in the Slow Cooker at The Happy HousewifeBy contributing writer SnoWhite

Salsa chicken in the slow cooker is an incredibly easy dinner to prepare for your family.  Toss in some pineapple and black beans and serve over brown rice.

It’s perfect for Cinco de Mayo and works great during warm months when you don’t want to heat up your house by making dinner.
