Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Salsa Chicken from Kalyn’s Kitchen features chicken breasts that get infused with salsa and lime flavors. Then they go under the broiler with cheese for an easy dinner the family will love!
Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Salsa Chicken has been a huge hit on Kalyn’s Kitchen for years! This simple 5-Ingredient Recipe was so popular when I made it in the slow cooker that eventually I decided we had to have an Instant Pot version of this favorite recipe as well. Now there are two versions of this recipe that will produce moist chicken with spicy salsa flavor, topped with gooey melted cheese.
And this Salsa Chicken with Lime and Melted Mozzarella is a complete keeper dinner idea no matter which way you make it! This is super-quick in the Instant Pot, or if you prefer the slow cooker this is a good one to try when you only have a few hours, but you’d like the convenience of not having to watch dinner. And this is pretty much guaranteed to be a dinner the whole family will enjoy. I like it with sour cream and a squeeze of lime to add at the table!
What Ingredients do you need for this recipe?
