1 1⁄2 cups salsa

1⁄4 cup dried red peppers, lightly crushed (optional)

3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1 large onion, chopped

1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

Time-saving tip: This recipe freezes well, so feel free to pack it up in a storage container and store it away.

 

1. In a slow cooker or a rice cooker with a slow cook setting, mix to combine the chicken, onion, cilantro, salsa, and red peppers (if using).

2. Cook for 4 to 6 hours on high.

3. Take the lid off the cooker, and stir the chicken. It should fall apart without much effort. If it is not breaking apart easily, set the cooker to high for another hour.

4. This is awesome by itself, or in tacos. Try it over black rice with a little avocado, salsa, and lime juice.
