Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken


September 20, 2012 by hoosieroutwest

So remember how I canned Salsa Verde last month? Well I have found a super easy and delicious way to use it. In fact, we’ve been having it so much recently I had to can another batch of salsa to last us through the winter.

just mix it all up

It’s as easy as mixing everything in a bowl and throwing it in the slow cooker. Do it in the morning and dinner will be ready when you come home from work.

voilà dinner!

Dinner is served! Enjoy!
