Salsa Chicken

Submitted by: Marian Darnay, Mandan

Wow — four ingredients and just four steps to prepare? And a crockpot does all the work? This is a meal made for me, a less-than-beginning cook who thinks anything that takes more steps to make than preparing a bowl of cereal is too difficult.

If I can make this, you can probably do it in your sleep. It’s a family favorite of ours.


  • Chicken Breasts
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Jar of Salsa
  • Rice (1 or 2 cups, depending on how much rice you like)


  1. Place 2 or 3 frozen chicken breasts in crockpot on low.
  2. Add a small jar of salsa and 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. Cook about 8 hours.
  3. Shred chicken and place back into the sauce in the crockpot.
  4. Serve over rice.

Note: You can also heat up and add a can of corn and some black olives to the mix when serving. This is what the photo shows.

Prep time: 15 minutes; about 8 hours in the crockpot
