If desired, line slow cooker with a liner.
Place chicken and salsa in a 5-7 quart slow cooker.
Cover and set on high for 3 hours. After 2 hours, check the temperature of the chicken with an instant read thermometer. Once chicken is at 165°F it's done cooking. (This will take 2-3 hours depending on your crockpot.)
Alternately, set the crockpot to low for 4-6 hours and start checking it after 3 hours.
Shred the chicken with two forks and stir it up with the salsa.
Serve on salad, plain or in tacos. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.
You can use up to 2 pounds chicken breasts for this, just make sure they make a single layer (as single layer as possible) on the bottom of the crockpot.
