  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Spread onion rings into the bottom of a slow cooker crock. Place chicken onto onion layer with breast-side facing down. Pour salsa over the chicken.
  2. Cook on High until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 5 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  3. Remove the chicken from slow cooker, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes before cutting.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
