Works Great for Meal Prep and Freezer Meals:
I started making this salsa chicken as a freezer meal when I was pregnant with my first born, Henri. Its easy to throw all the ingredients in a large ziploc bag, lay flat and freeze so that you have an easy meal to dump in the slow cooker in the future. This also makes an awesome gift to a new mom! You can prepare this for the freezer before cooking or after cooking.
