    I followed the directions as stated, except I used Mexican cheese blend instead of mozzarella. The chicken came out dry, however the flavor was very good. Next time I’ll probably bake it instead and hope for a better outcome

    I used Monterrey Jack cheese instead of Mozzarella cheese. I like it better with Salsa. The dish was simple and tasted awesome. It will be a regular for a while.

    It was okay, but it was almost like eating regular tacos.

    This turned out really good. I didn't reduce the salsa, just threw it in the crockpot. My chicken breast was frozen and I don't think it even took 2 whole hours. I also added a couple tbsp of Italian seasoning. The Italian seasoning makes a world of difference.
