Simple Slow Cooker Recipe: Salsa Verde Chicken

Leave a comment

Before I create my grocery list for the upcoming week, I usually do a few things…look to see what is already in the fridge and pantry, check our schedules for the week and think through what we had to eat for dinner the week before. A couple of weeks ago I realized I would need a few slow cooker meals due to our upcoming week having a few busy days and nights. After browsing some of my favorite foodie sites, I came across the most simple recipe. I know I might have mentioned a recipe I’ve posted before as easy and simple, but this recipe is on it’s own level of easy.

Before I share the details of this great find, guess how many ingredients you need for this dish?

FOUR! Yes, it is only four ingredients and they require no prep work. All you have to do is put the ingredients in the slow cooker, place lid on, set timer, and walk away. It’s crazy not only how easy it is, but how great it taste. My husband could not believe how great it was and he is not a big fan of chicken for dinner. This salsa verde chicken recipe is as follows.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups of salsa verde
  • 1 bottle of beer (we use Modelo)
  • 2 tsp of cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place chicken in the slow cooker
  2. Top with salsa verde, beer and cumin
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking
  4. Turn the chicken so that both sides are covered with beer and salsa
  5. Cover and cook 3-4 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low
  6. Chicken is ready when it easily shreds with fork

Once the chicken is ready there are many ways to serve it…tacos, nachos, rice bowl, etc. We recently used the chicken for stuffed poblano peppers and they were delicious. We have also just placed the chicken in a bowl and topped with cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. No matter how you serve it, it will be a great lunch or dinner. 

So thanks to GIMME SOME OVEN I have discovered a go to recipe when my day does not have time for prepping food. It is a go to when I have a few friends coming over and I would rather spend time with them than be in the kitchen most of the time. And sometimes it is simply my go to because I crave it. LOL. I hope your family enjoys this easy, simple and yummy dish as much as our family and friends do.
