Salsa verde, is a green salsa made with all-natural ingredients. Combine it with chicken or pork for a quick and healthy slow cooker recipe.
So easy. Chicken and salsa. That’s all there is to this recipe. And yes, while this does use a homemade salsa, it’s still really quick. For the salsa recipe click here.
For the protein, you can use either chicken or pork. I actually looked for a nice 2-3 lb pork loin but I couldn’t find one under 5 lbs. That’s okay though because it gave me an excuse to use some of my 5280meat chicken breasts!
You’ll know the meat is done when it shreds easily with a fork. Seriously, if you take it out and it doesn’t shred easily then put it back in the slow cooker and cook for another 30 minutes.
