Recipe of the Day -- Salsa Verde Chicken

Ok so we are all always looking for healthy recipes that also require little work and are still tasty! Well I have got a great and super easy recipe for you!! All you need for the base of it are a jar of salsa verde salsa, a crock pot, and some chicken breasts! I used the healthiest salsa verde I could find in the store here, but I plan on making my own with this recipe just without the sugar if I can ever find tomatillos in this city. I used 3 frozen chicken breasts because that's all that I could fit in my mini crock pot, but you can do two jars of salsa and up the number of chicken breasts. So here it is..

Super simple..
1. Take out your crockpot and put the salsa in it.
2. Submerge all of your chicken under the salsa. I usually use frozen chicken because it's easiest.
3. Put the lid on the crockpot and set on low. Cook for 10 hours if possible.
    ---- I change it up all the time! The other day I cooked on high for 3 hours and low for a while too. just make sure it's fully cooked before eating which you will know because
4. When it is ready you will know because when you mix up the crock pot of chicken and sauce it will all be loose and shredded!!

There are tons of ways you can serve it.. tacos, burritos, over rice, etc..

this night I did burritos.
-- whole grain tortillas
-- put the chicken meat
-- cover with lime YUM
-- small sprinkle of reduced fat cheese
-- organic black beans
-- chop up fresh lettuce

The other great thing about this is that the leftovers are DELICIOUS with scrambled eggs in a burritos!! Yum! Enjoy!
