Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken

Tried this earlier this week and even my pickiest eater loved it. Super easy and super good!! Found the recipe here.

Easy Creamy Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken
Author: Lovely Little Kitchen
Serves: 6-8

Ingredients:

4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 5-6 large)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
2 cups salsa verde (I love Trader Joe’s)

Directions:

Add chicken to the crockpot, and then top with seasonings, cubed cream cheese, and salsa.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Shred the chicken with two forks. Use a whisk to mix the remaining sauce in the crockpot. The cream cheese may look a little lumpy, but it will smooth out as you stir.
Add the shredded chicken back to the crockpot. Cook on low for another half hour to allow the chicken to absorb the creamy salsa verde sauce. I usually turn my crockpot to the “warm” setting at this point. The sauce will thicken up slightly as it cools.

Elizabeth's - I made this too and it was so good!! Even better the next day. I’m so glad it’s getting cooler out bc I hate cooking and now I can be lazy and use the crock pot more often well that still involves preparation so we’ll see how well that goes LOL

Laura h - Thanks for sharing! I love a good crockpot meal!

Hannah - It sounds awesome.

I love kids that love dogs. Seriously, they are the best kind of kids.

Last night my friend Aimee was over with her fam. This little chicky is one serious dog lover.

And while she was hoping to walk out of my house with one of my pups snuggled under her shirt, I sent her home with a frog instead.:)

And Hannah you were texting me about pics from the new iPhone 6- I lost the ones I took at xc because my sim card died- these are the first two I took. Not bad!

Hannah - I love people who love animals. Dmitry is not an animal person, but I still love him :)

I’m so on the fence about the phone. I’ll probably sit on it a while. That’s what I tend to do…little decisions make me crazy, but I’ll make big ones at the drop of a hat.
