This Salsa Chicken recipe has made the blog rounds more times than I can count and every time I’ve seen it I’ve thought, “Eww, how can cream of mushroom soup and salsa be good together?!” It wasn’t until one of my favorite bakers raved about it that I finally caved and gave it a try. That was just a couple months ago and I’ve made it at least 4 times since then.

It’s easy, I almost always have the ingredients on hand, and it’s delicious. It’s also easily adaptable which is very important to me. One day I found myself without taco seasoning (or cumin!) so I threw in some jerk seasoning and it may have been even better than the original recipe. Also, I’ve seen people serve the chicken as whole breasts but I prefer it shredded. It gives it a nice texture.

  1. Put chicken, soup, and salsa in slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over everything. Cook on low for 6 hours. If shredding the chicken, pull the breasts out and shred; return back to slow cooker. Stir in sour cream and heat just until everything is combined.
