Ok, fine I’ll explain it a little more. But only because I like you guys.

Get some chicken. I like to buy local.

Get some pineapple salsa. I like to buy Trader Jose’s.

Put the salsa over your chicken in a crockpot. Cook it. Cook it good. In an oldie-but-a-goodie crockpot, preferably. (This was my grandmother’s.)

It’s delicious. See?

Serve it however your heart desires. Taco salad. Straight from the pot. With rice & beans. Or, like i did, in corn tortillas.

With guacamole. Duh. Of course, guacamole. You could add more to your tacos, like lettuce, peppers, rice, cilantro, lime, tomato, etc. But I didn’t have any of that on hand and I was too lazy to go to the store. So simple tacos it was.

Pineapple Salsa Crockpot Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts (about 1.5 lbs or so)
  • 1/2 jar (12 oz) Trader Joe’s Pineapple Salsa

1. Put the uncooked chicken breasts in your crockpot.

2. Pour the salsa over the chicken breasts. Add a little water (2-3 tablespoons) to the empty salsa jar and swirl around to loosen the remaining salsa. Pour into the crockpot.

3. Put the lid on and cook for 6 hours on medium heat.

4. Shred with a fork (it should be super tender) and let sit for another 10-20 minutes low on low heat before serving.

You can easily cook 4 breasts with a whole jar of salsa. But I only had half a jar of salsa so I didn’t. :)

I love TJ’s pineapple salsa! I love it so much that I had to stop buying it…I was putting that stuff on everything, so I’d run out of it in two days!

Whaaattt!!! That sounds so simple and so amazing…I bet the pineapple gets kind of caramelized on the chicken too…can’t wait to try this one!
