Do I have to make Mango Peach Salsa?

To prepare this crock pot recipe, we used the premade mango salsa recipe that you can get at the grocery store.

Mango Peach Salsa is made up of fresh peaches and mangos. Combined with bell peppers, red onion, cilantro, and jalapenos. It is the perfect salsa topped with this crock pot recipe.

It is perfectly sweet and spicy and the lime juice makes it even better. Sometimes I add a little green onion to the top.

Ingredients needed - chicken, seasoning, mango peach salsa, black beans, corn, fresh lime, cilantro, mango rice

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Seasonings
  • Mango Peach Salsa
  • Black Beans
  • Corn
  • Fresh Lime

How to make Slow Cooker Mango Chicken

  • Shred Chicken – I like to remove the chicken shred it once it is finished cooking. It is so tender you can easily shred it with a fork.
  • Add the fresh cilantro and combine with other ingredients.
  • Serve and Enjoy – Serve with rice and top with fresh mango and salt and pepper.

How long should you cook Chicken in the Slow Cooker?

Cooking chicken in the crock pot will vary. Cooking chicken on low will take about 6 to 8 hours or on hour for about 4 hours. If your chicken is frozen it may take a little longer to cook.

We like to cook our chicken on low so it doesn’t dry out.

Can I Grill the Chicken instead?

Yes, this is the perfect meal to make Grilled Chicken and serve fresh mango on top. As a result, you will have flavor chicken and an amazing meal. Grill the chicken about 4-6 minutes per side so that it is cooked thoroughly.

We like to use a meat thermometer. So that we know that the meat has an internal temperature of 165 degrees. To make sure that the chicken doesn’t stick to the grill, oil the grates with olive oil.

Variation Ideas:

  • Use Peach Salsa – Peach salsa is a great option for this recipe. Peach salsa is made of fresh ingredients including, peaches, tomatoes, bell peppers, cilantro and easy seasoning.
  • Regular Salsa – If you can’t find mango salsa, you can use regular salsa. You can also include ½ mango diced in the crock pot before you cook.
