      2 pounds (32 ounces) chicken breasts, boneless and skinless ( I use chicken thighs instead so they dont dry out )
      1 cup salsa, homemade or purchased
      1 cup petite diced canned tomatoes (choose low-sodium)
      2 tablespoons Taco Seasoning ( I use 1 packet of low salt )
      1 cup onions, diced fine
      1/2 cup celery diced fine
      1/2 cup carrots, shredded ( I didnt include these )
      3 tablespoons sour cream, reduced fat ( I used no fat greek yoghurt instead )

      Salsa Chicken is easy to make; just put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and let the machine do the work. There are infinite variations, and your family is guaranteed to like each one.
      6-8 hours to prepare; 15 minutes of active cooking time
      Makes 8 one-cup servings of chicken.

      Place the chicken in a slow cooker. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the meat then layer the vegetables and salsa on top. Pour a half cup water over the mixture, set on low and cook for 6-8 hours. The meat is cooked when it shreds or reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. When ready to serve, break up the chicken with two forks then stir in the sour cream.
      Makes eight 1 cup servings. ( I only cook for 5 hours on low & dont pull apart & serve on cauliflower rice )
