Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken Print Recipe Print Recipe


This isn’t really a recipe. But more of a pro-tip. And by pro-tip I mean, LIFE ESSENTIAL.

Maybe a little dramatic.

But you know, with all sorts of life stuff, these little tips are how I survive dinner time.

I just feel like it’s my duty to make sure you all have this “recipe” in your back pocket.



It wasn’t until I had Gray that I became a loyalist to the crock-pot. You know, sleep deprivation. Full time job. KIDS. and all the other things that need attention. So basically, it keeps us fed. It’s the little things, really.

Okay, so this chicken is perfect with tacos or burritos, over rice & veggies, on this salad, or these nachos. Oh or this oldie but a goodie. Or if you’re under the age of four, it’s great as is.

ps. you can make it with basically any type of salsa, mild to spicy. This just happens to be our favorite.



So, because you know, LIFE, I’ve been using our slow cooker quite a bit lately. Maybe you can relate? Here’s a few recipes that we’ve tried and loved that I thought I’d share.
