Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken Sandwiches with Cucumber Mango Salsa

There’s something about the warm weather that suddenly makes me feel like I’m living on some gorgeous, tropical island.

I love recipes that combine fruit with chicken. It’s a combo that just works. And this Mango Chicken from Erin, of One Dish Dinners and $5 Dinners, looks fantastic.


Plus, it cooks in the slow cooker. Always a bonus, but especially on hot summer days.  Erin used boneless chicken thighs, zucchini, tomatoes and mango along with seasonings.  She also has a handy tip on how to cut a mango.
