Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Verde

I've been on sort of a healthy eating kick lately.  Last week I attended a meeting with a local wellness coach (sponsored by my son's school) and I've been on a health kick ever since.  I've been experimenting with several Paleo recipes this week and I'd like to share them with you.  

This first one was found via Pinterest and is super easy and great for a busy night when you don't have much time in the kitchen. The crockpot is one of my favorite kitchen tools.  Just throw everything inside and hours later, your meal is ready! 

You only need 2 ingredients for this recipe (plus garnishes like avocados and tomatoes).  Boneless skinless chicken thighs paired with salsa verde turned out to be very good.

So far, I've been eating more raw nuts, buying local pastured eggs, limiting grains and dairy, cooking with coconut oil and eating lots and lots of colorful vegetables to name a few.  Who knows where this journey will take me...  :)

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Verde

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
16 oz. salsa verde (I bought mine at Trader Joe's)

Add chicken to the slow cooker. Cover with salsa verde and cook on low for 5 hours.

If you are home, you can open the lid at the 4 hour mark and shred the chicken with 2 forks, if not, no worries, it will still turn out fine!

Use a slotted spoon to remove the chicken from the slow cooker, leaving the liquid behind.

Salt and pepper to taste and serve. The Trader Joe’s salsa is already quite salty, so it doesn’t require additional salt.

Serve with slices of tomatoes and avocados.
