Easy Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken
This Easy Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken recipe is this weeks Crock Pot recipe of the week. As I mentioned in the 25 Best Flour On My Face Recipes of 2014 that this year was going to be THE year of the crock pot recipe. I decided I would attempt to share a crock pot recipe every week. That means I will need to share 52 Crock Pot recipes in 2015. Honestly I hope I can do it.
Crock Pot recipes have been the overall most popular recipes on Flour On My Face. I love cooking in the crock pot and obviously so do many of you.
To prepare for my crock pot recipe weekly blast on the blog I bought a couple of new crock pots. My family thinks I am nuts. I own about 10 crock pots in different sizes. But hey I have to have the right size crock pots on hand for each recipe.
For this Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken recipe I used the (affiliate link) Crock Pot 4 Quart Oval Crock Pot. The 4 quart size worked perfect for this size recipe.
Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken is so easy to make and is a 2 ingredient crock pot recipe with just a couple of spices added! All you need is some boneless chicken breasts and a bottle of Salsa Verde. I happen to be using the (affiliate link) Taco Bell Salsa Verde that I am seriously addicted to but you can use any brand you’d like.
As you can see from the photo below the bottle of Taco Bell Verde Salsa is very small. You do not need a huge jar of salsa verde. As the chicken cooks it will release moisture.
How to Make Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken
Crock Pot recipes are so ridiculously easy to make. Place the boneless chicken breasts in the crock pot. Pour the Taco Bell Verde Salsa over the chicken and add the seasonings.
Cook the salsa verde chicken for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low in your crock pot.
Once the chicken has finished cooking use a fork to pull the chicken apart and mix.
If the chicken seems to have too much liquid turn the crock pot up on high and cook for another hour or so until some of the liquid evaporates.
Or you could stir in 2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed with 3 teaspoons of cold water. This will thicken the liquids and turn the liquid into a nice salsa verde sauce for your tacos.
