Hello! I brought out an old but delicious recipe today – crockpot chicken. It works for so many Mexican dishes = tacos, burritos, taquitos, salads…
Salsa Chicken Recipe in Crockpot
Slow Cooker Chicken for Tacos, Burritos, etc.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa
Place 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts in a crockpot.
Pour a jar of salsa over it.
Cook on low 5-6 hours. Shred by separating with two forks. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
The chicken breasts I cooked I actually had for a long time and just figured I should make them / wanted to celebrate Taco Tuesday. Now I don’t really have any meat in my house except salmon burgers.
I haven’t been eating much meat since I was trying to eat vegetarian in June. I wasn’t 100% veg, but I did swamp out chicken for beans or veggie burgers for the majority of my meals. I even scored a great Blue Apron Vegetarian Meal and shrimp dish.
It’s not that difficult for me to eat pescatarian, I don’t really miss meat at all. I like fish, but can do without red meat, pork and a lot of chicken. But, deny me carbs and it’s going to be unpleasant for anyone around me.
I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue to try and eat vegetarian more in July, but in June it didn’t really make a big difference in how I felt. I guess because I mostly ate chicken in the past and still ate fish this month? Anyway.
Since we’re talking about June and July and all that good stuff, let’s discuss the best Run Eat and Repeat blog from June!
My favorite RUN
I have not been running well this month. Boo. But I would like to share my Tips for Running in the Humidity blog post.
My favorite EAT
ALL THE WATERMELON I ate at my little brother’s promotion party. Plus Sangria
The First Brunch I Made All By Myself was pretty awesome too!
My favorite post I’d like to REPEAT
Getting my Health Coaching books was a big highlight of the month! The program starts in two weeks and I’m very excited.
And since I went through a lot of pain to report this I’d like to repeat… Laser Hair Removal Results
Also – Make-Up Bag Must Haves got great response since I get a lot of questions about make-up or why I wear too much makeup but whatev.

Ummmm, thank you for the dinner inspiration! Read this yesterday mid-morning, and made crockpot chicken for dinner! It was delicious!
Daisy @ Fit Wanderlust Runner says
My favorite run was probably any of my beach runs. Gotta love running with views! 🙂
Tedi @ Running with Infertility says
Favorite run was in Anchorage Alaska and I got to see a moose and her calf right before! So SO pretty. AND it was my first run in 4 weeks! 🙂
There was a TED talk on Netflix, a series relating to only food (Chew on This, TED talks) and a couple of presenters talked about how we need to reduce our meat intake. One guy coined a term, which I can’t remember now, but you eat vegetarian like during the week, and consume your meets on the weekends. It was really interesting.
My favorite eat is watermelon. I used to hate it.. and now as an adult, I can’t get enough of it.
Cody @ onehungryrunner says
Love celebrating Taco Tuesday–best night of the week (except for maybe Friday-Sunday)!
Emily @ My Healthyish Life says
Watermelon was/is my favorite. ALWAYS.
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties says
I LOVE making chicken like that in the crock pot! another super easy dish is putting pork chops in the crock pot and covering with a little bbq sauce… cook 8-10 hrs on low then shred! SO SO SO GOOD.
Morgan @ Morgan Manages Mommyhood says
So, that chicken looks great and all, but give me the watermelon and Sangria, please and thank you.
Sommer King says
This recipe looks so good. I recently started using my crockpot and I love it. I’ve had it for about a yearn and I’m so mad that it took me this long to use it. It is so easy and mess-free. This recipe is perfect for me because I love tacos, but don’t like all the time it takes to prep everything. I will definitely be giving this recipe a try in the very near future.
Natalie @ The Ravenous Mommy says
My tip for running in the heat is don’t! hahaha. I usually get on a treadmill if it’s too steamy outside. Even though running outdoors is much more fun.
I did not love running this month either. It’s been incredibly hot and while I love summer for other reasons, the runner in me is just ready for it to be cold again. I covet your watermelon but I’m eating some pretty awesome cherries, so there is that.
Elizabeth Beil says
I am just like you, I can for go the meat but I love my fish and shellfish! My favorite run was my long run a few weeks ago in the ran and cold, always makes you stronger and my favorite eat was the fried plantain from the Whole Foods hot bar a few weeks ago!
I love fried plantains! Love. And totally agree about the seafood – when I hear someone doesn’t like it I’m so surprised.
Jill @ Champagne for Everyday says
I’ve heard about this Health Coach program and I can’t wait to hear how it goes. Health/life/fitness coach = dream job!!! LOL

Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out says
this looks so good! I love a good crockpot meal!
Casey @ Staying on Pace says
Umm those chicken tacos look delish!
I’m so excited for you to start your health coach training- I can’t wait to read about your progress! It sounds so interesting, but I would be a terrible health coach b/c my diet mainly consists of fro yo, fruit, and wine :/
If only we could create a wine based fro-yo… let’s do it!
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff says
I laughed when I saw it said swamp out instead of swap out in your post. Not sure if it was typo or intentional but funny nonetheless:)
My favorite run was an 8 miler I did by the ocean on the first evening of summer. I watched the sunset just as I finished running. It was so peaceful.
HA!! That was an accident.
