Slow Cooker Pineapple Salsa Chicken (+ video)

Posted in : MAIN DISHES on by : Admin

Tender, juicy chicken slow cooked in fresh pineapple and roasted tomato salsa with sweet and spicy flavors.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness (no more than 1 inch)
  • 3 cups chopped pineapple (I recommend fresh but canned would work too)
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 medium jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 1 15-ounce can fire roasted tomatoes (not drained)
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • cooked rice, for serving (optional)
  • Instructions

  • Combine pineapple, onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, salt, and chili powder in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  • Lightly grease your slow cooker. Place chicken in a single layer (the best you can, it’s okay if they overlap a little) in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Pour salsa mixture over chicken.
  • Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours or on high 2-3 hours. Serve chicken and salsa over rice if desired. (see note for alternate serving option)
