About this Recipe

Sweet Salsa Chicken is a stable in my home.  The convenience of this recipes is perfect.  It’s perfect for weekday night meals and perfect for feeding a crowd.  It looks and smells delicious and beyond that the Sweet Salsa Chicken Salad does not disappoint either.  Everyone always asks for the recipe.  It’s so simple is crazy!

Sweet Salsa Chicken Salad can be made with shredded chicken made in the Crock Pot, Instant Pot, or (hint) even canned chicken breast.  EEK!  Yes, I did just say that!  But truly, sometime life gets in the way and even the simplest of recipes need a quick tip here and there.  Making Sweet Salsa Chicken is also wonderful in Quesadillas or in Burritos.  It’s truly one of those recipes that can be used so many ways.

Quick Tips

Start some Savory Rice or Cilantro Lime Rice when you begin to make Sweet Salsa Chicken.  Then your dinner will be ready all at once!
