I’m gonna tell you now. Put salsa verde in your shopping list this week. And chicken. And tortillas…. OMG. All it takes is one bite, and you’ll be hooked on this Salsa Verde Chicken. Tender chicken in a tangy, smoky sauce… check out how I pull this Taco Tuesday recipe off in the video below!
Talk about delicious, this is one of my favorite chicken recipes! It’s mouthwatering good and a meal, my kids’ LOVE. Everyone gets excited as soon as the scent of lime, taco seasoning, and somethin’ somethin’ cooking fill the house. Best of all, the slow cooker takes care of all the cooking.
The salsa verde adds an incredible depth of flavor; but if you’re a busy mom, go ahead and grab that 12-ounce jar from the grocery store. Because let me tell you that this is a stress-free taco zone and it still tastes pretty amazing!
I like to double the recipe for this salsa verde chicken, because leftovers are better the second and third day, as the chicken soaks up more flavor from the tangy sauce.
You guys, this is the kind of stuff you can eat by the forkful -and of course, this is a no-judgment zone. Just like if you eat four of these tacos… because they are so good.
Here are a few other ways you can add salsa verde chicken into your meals:
- Toss it in a creamy pasta. This will be one of the best decision you’ll ever make.
- On top of a salad. Use salsa verde the same way you’d use salad dressing and toss to combine. Better yet, add a little sour cream for a creamy consistency that’s amazing!
- On top of a homemade Burrito Bowl. Add some sour cream and cheese, and you’re in food heaven
- Stuffed in a baked potato with sour cream and more cheese, need I say more?
