Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken

Submitted by: GRANOLAMOM79

Introduction

I used a 3.5lb whole roasting chicken and I removed all the skin. I couldn't find the option to select it, so I believe the fat content and calories are lower. Could also use boneless skinless chicken breasts. Great as is, would make a great taco or enchilada filling. I used a 3.5lb whole roasting chicken and I removed all the skin.

  • I just put this into my slow cooker, and I can't wait to try it tonight. I did change it a bit though, I used grilled corn on the cob and grilled onion left over from last night to help boost flavor and nutrition. - 9/3/11
