Salsa Chicken Recipe ~ 1 Pot 3 Ways

by Linette

I received some of the products in this post as samples for review. All opinions are my own.

I love meals that are super quick, and easy especially on week nights when we’re running all night. One of my favorite go to meals is this salsa chicken recipe. You only need 20 minutes and 4 ingredients and you can serve it up 3 ways. That makes it a total win for my family, who can never seem to agree on what they want for supper.

I’m super excited to be participating in the one pot meal challenge sponsored by Good Cook and to be sharing one of my favorite week night go to recipes with you. First up here’s the recipe.

Salsa Chicken Recipe

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 4 -6


  • 1 ~ 32 ounce can chicken
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa~ I use Tostitos Restaurant Style
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 small sweet pepper chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Dice the onion and the sweet pepper, then add to a skillet or pot with the olive oil.
  • Saute the onion pepper and olive oil for a couple minutes, then add the chicken, and salsa.
  • Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve over lettuce to make a salad, on a wrap, or in a sandwich.

I serve the salsa chicken up 3 different ways. I love it over lettuce, topped with a little guacamole, tomato, cilantro, or even sour cream.

My husband loves it in a sandwich, and even to take the leftovers to work the next day!

My son loves salsa chicken in a wrap! He usually adds a little cheese, and sour cream.

Pot Clip  the SMART Ice cream scoop, Safe-cut Can Opener the Flip Measuring spoon, , and an Egg Separator. I gave the can opener a try to open the can of chicken for this recipe. It worked like a dream! I love that it also has a bottle opener on the side. We’re definitely taking this along on camping trips this summer!

I also tried out the pot clip spoon rest. I’ve never had one of these gadgets before, and I have to say it came in super handy! I am definitely keeping this within reach! I hate it when I rest the spoon in the pot then it falls down inside, or when I lay it on the stove and it leaves a spot. This is a cool little invention!
