SLOW COOKER: SPICY SALSA VERDE CHICKEN

IMG_1481.jpg

Hi friends!  I am not going to lie, re-entry from this past weekends conference is going to be rough.  That is why we all need really easy, quick recipes to fall on.  These are the types of days were my crockpot really gets a workout.  I threw this together last week on Insta-stories and honestly I had no idea whether it was going to turn out or not.  I basically just threw a bunch of ingredients that I had on hand in my fridge, said a little prayer over my crockpot, and viola, 8 hours later I had this delicious Spicy Salsa Verde Chicken.  You can serve this over brown rice or quinoa and it makes a really delicious sauce.
