Even frozen chicken will work —simply double the cook time. Mix up the taco seasonings by using a spicier seasoning like chili or use a jar of green salsa verde for a milder flavor.

What To Serve With Salsa Chicken?
Tacos are the first thing we think of for shredded salsa chicken! Create a DIY buffet with a variety of mix-ins and toppings like avocado, tomato, olives, and onions. For toppings, we like shredded cheese, extra salsa, sour cream, and avocado dip. Don’t forget the hot sauce!
