Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken

If you are into meal prepping, or want to get into meal prepping, this is the way to go. Or if you just don't want to worry about cooking for the week. Also, your house will smell delicious while the chicken is simmering in the crockpot. Just a few simple ingredients, a few hours to do something else besides cook a labor intensive meal, and you'll have chicken for the week.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can use the chicken for stew, tacos, on a salad. You can also use any combo of spices and salsa.

I opted for tacos. I had tacos pretty much every day for 4 or 5 days. Obsessed? Yes. Mexican is my favorite.

Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 jars of salsa verde (I used Herdez brand)
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Place chicken breasts in a single layer on the bottom of the crockpot. Mix all ingredients for sauce in a medium bowl. Pour over chicken, covering all breasts with sauce. Turn crockpot on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Once chicken is done, shred with forks and return to crockpot. Stir to mix chicken with juice and store in an airtight container.

  1. Who doesnt like Mexican food? The simplicity of this recipe made my life so easy. Throw some chicken in a crock pot, mix spices and salsa, cook for 4 hours while I went to the Gym, showered, and took a power nap, then it was lunch time. PERFECTION. I added some Roasted corn from Trader Joes for a little extra spice, but overall, I am so happy. Plus, it freezes great for easy week night dinners when I don't want to cook something.
