the baker upstairs: slow cooker salsa verde chicken

slow cooker salsa verde chicken

Yum

I have another super easy dinner idea to share with you today! Because, well, that seems to be the only kind of dinner I can scrape together lately. This slow cooker salsa verde chicken is incredibly easy to make (only 4 ingredients!) and is super versatile. We used it for tacos with cheese, salsa, sour cream, and lettuce on top, but it would also be delicious in enchiladas, burritos, mexican casseroles, etc. This recipe was enough for three meals for my little family, so I put the extra in the freezer for another day (when I'm feeling even lazier or have even less time to make dinner). I have some serious love for tomatillos, so I'm kind of crazy about the salsa verde. I'm sure any salsa would be delicious in this, though. I love how simple and easy it is, and my whole family loved their tacos!
Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
16 ounce jar of salsa verde (I used Herdez brand)
juice of one lime
1 small onion, sliced

Pour a small amount of salsa into the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the onions on top, followed by the chicken breasts. Pour remaining salsa over the top, reserving about 1/4 cup. Squeeze lime juice over the top. Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours. Shred the chicken using two forks and toss in the cooking liquid. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of salsa. Use for tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, or enchiladas. Enjoy!
