Salsa Pineapple Chicken Crock Pot Meal

Updated on September 25, 2014

This is the Midwest

We love our casseroles in the Midwest, as well as our crock pots. As a full time worker, college student, and part time musician, there are many weeks where shopping, cooking, and meal planning go by the wayside a little. This crock pot recipe was given to me by a friend who is also from the Midwest, and who loves lazy, warm, slow cooked comfort food as much as I do. This gets rave reviews at potlucks. People ask for the recipe and are always surprised at how easy it is. The most time consuming and difficult part is cooking the rice - if you use rice. You don't have to. It's your call.

Cook time - not including cooking rice

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 7 hours
Ready in: 7 hours 5 min
Yields: 12-ish

Ingredients - adjust as you like

  • 3 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Large jar salsa, mild, medium, spicy - your call
  • 1 Large can pineapple chunks
  • 1 Can black beans, optional!
  • 1/2 cup Corn, optional!
  • Rice, optional!
  • Tortillas, optional!
  • Egg noodles, optional!

Super Easy Instructions

  1. Dump chicken breasts in crock pot.
  2. Cover with entire jar of salsa.
  3. Add pineapple, juice and all.
  4. Throw in black beans, corn, onions, peppers - any extras you'd like.
  5. Heat in crock pot on high. The chicken will start to fall apart around hour six or seven. Stick a a couple of forks in the pot and use them to pull the chicken into shreds, mixing the ingredients as you do.
  6. Serve over rice, on tortillas, over egg noodles - some type of starch works well to catch the juice.

Ohio - We love our crock pots!
