Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken Tacos

OK, so...Don't judge a meal by it's picture. There really wasn't a way for me to get a good pic of this meal. We didn't fancy anything up and truthfully, it doesn't look pretty when you eat it unless you do.

This meal was delicious!!

The best part about it is that it's a crockpot meal!! I love anything that doesn't take an effort on my part. It actually turned out to be the best idea ever for Mike and I because by the time we got home from house hunting on Saturday he only had 10 minutes before he had to head into work. I was so grateful I put this on in the morning.

I forgot to mention before that this is a SKINNY meal!! It's from Skinnytaste.com. So that makes it even better!!

Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken Tacos

INGREDIENTS:
     1.5 lbs of chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken breasts
     1/4 tsp garlic powder
     1/8 tsp ground cumin
     1/8 tsp oregano
     Salt to taste
     16oz jar salsa verde

DIRECTIONS:
1. Season chicken with garlic, oregano, and cumin. Add salt.

2. Put chicken in crockpot. Cover with salsa verde.

3. Cover and heat on low for 6-8 hours or until tender. Shred chicken. Serve on tortillas.

Suggestion: This was SUPER juicy. You might want to think about draining any excess liquid from the jar before adding the verde or adding more chicken. Maybe use tongs when putting it on the taco. We used a slotted spoon and definitely didn't let it drain long enough.

  4. I don't use green salsa enough! This sounds fantastic; I love crock pot meals in the summer so you don't have to turn on the oven or stove and get the house all hot!

    I will definitely be trying these!
