Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Easy Healthy 2-Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
This easy, healthy, delicious 2-ingredient slow cooker salsa chicken recipe could NOT be easier. It’s one of my go-to recipes perfect for busy days.
Salsa is one of my favorite healthy, low calorie, 0 points seasonings. It’s a delicious way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies without even trying 🙂
If you love Mexican shredded chicken you will want to give this easy 2-ingredient recipe a try.
Skinny on 2-Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
Be sure to use your favorite salsa. The chicken will release plenty of juice during cooking, which will dilute the flavors a bit. So, if you like spicy food be sure to use a salsa with some “kick.”
You can use this shredded slow cooker salsa chicken all kinds of ways. In tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, enchiladas, taquitos, quesadillas, or sandwiches. With rice and vegetables. I like it on top of salad because the salsa acts as a great dressing.
This recipe makes 6 servings. It’s easy to double to feed a crowd or portion out and freeze for future quick and easy meals.
According to my calculations each serving has 2 Weight Watchers SmartPoints. Enjoy!
