Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
I'm always looking for a good Crock Pot meal - if you want, you can make this dish in the Crock Pot!
Helpful hint: I tried cooking the chicken ahead of time in the crock pot for a few hours until fully cooked to give the dish a jump start while I was at work. Then when I prepared the sauce I just poured it over the pre-cooked chicken. It turned out so tender and juicy, it was delicious! Also, by using hot salsa it doesn't make the dish spicy, it gives it a great flavor. If you were to use mild because of all the other ingredients it would be flavorless.
Serving suggestion: serve with green salad and biscuits.
